Yog-Sothoth knows the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the gate. Yog-Sothoth is the key and guardian of the gate. Past, present, future, all are one in Yog-Sothoth. He knows where the Old Ones broke through of old, and where They shall break through again.

Looks very cool, and somewhat like what I'm desgning but mine is in the Spice Islands and less "pirating" is involved. Very cool, let's see those ships.

Easily the best pirate game I've ever played and I've been looking for a long time. Closest thing I've played to Sid Meier's Pirates.

As I get older I find I tend to like games with some semblance of theme to them. I have played a million games now where I swap cubes for victory points, and having a different type of auction in them or an elegant turn order mechanic or whatever in them just does not make any difference. And I've impressed so many noblemen and master builders that I shouldn't even have to prove my skill anymore. So, given the chance to do something, I'll usually jump at it.

Merchants and Marauders is what so many new games forget to be: fun to play. It's one of those games that has a narrative, that you continue to talk about long after it's over. It's got some rough patches, but I will gladly swap fun for cold, burnished "elegance". I even stayed on the straight and narrow the whole game, and won as a merchant, which means, of course, I have to play it again and be a pirate!

An excellent reference pirate-themed game. Personally I wish for a bit more complexity/depth/weight, however for a standard gamer the gameplay sits on the correct spot. Some glory points came too easily I think. There are lots of interesting mechanics and it does capture perfectly the feel of the era. I would recommend this as the reference pirates' game, although I must also try GMT's blackbeard.

Very fun game. I don't think the merchant strategy is favored; it's just more straightforward. As a pirate, you have to go after those wussy traders and steal their shit. That's what pirates do.

My concerns are that some pirates and/or card draws might really swing the luck one way or another, but really, isn't it all about adventuring on the high seas?

Based on one test play with the designer and a friend. There are lots of tough decisions to make, which makes the game intriguing. Though there is a lot of randomness in the game it does not make the game boring. There are lots of events, which makes the game "realistic". You have to be prepared for bad weather, bad bad pirates, bad bad co-player pirates, pirate hunters, plague and anything you can think of in the Carabbian Waters. The trading mechanism is simple and very neat. Best of all is that the game oozed of theme. The art work is also great. The game I played took 3 hours to play, but I would prefer altering one of the winning critereias - stash away 100 gold pieces. Naaa if you ask me I would prefer changing that to about 125. Playing with the right scoundrels I would not mind playing this game for about 5 hours. It was lots of fun to play this game, which is a must have for pirate fans.

I've never played Sid Meier's Pirates, but I assume this is that video game in board game form. Dripping with theme, it's a pretty good game, with a really inventive battle mechanic that feels like ship-to-ship combat on the high seas.

What a great game! Probably the best pirate-themed game I've ever played. A little long, but I expect that will improve one we're more familiar with the rules. I would definitely play this one again.

1 Partida, muy ameritrash de ser mercader o pirata en el caribe, de la temática será de los mejores. Hace falta jugar una segunda, en la primera vas dando palos de ciego, y no te conoces bien las ventajas de cada zona de mar, de las mejoras de barcos etc.
