A very unique card game. The basic mechanism is devious: You have to sail to get goods to sell, but you can't sell anything while you are sailing. Timing is very important here, both in deciding when and how far to sail, and in deciding what and when to sell.

It's amazing what can be done with only a deck of cards which only have cartwheels and some different kind of spices printed on them.
Nice cardmanagement game that works good with 4 players, don't know about 2 players though.

Rating based on one 2-player game. Cute little game, played very quickly with 2. Not sure how it would work with more -- it seems like you might not have many turns.

A very clever game from the designer of Hanging Gardens. Multipurpose cards are cool and well-themed. I will buy this as soon as it's available.

Fun little economic game. Most people seem to think this will be an 'exploration' game, but it is instead an economic game, in the vein of Bohnanza with some Traders Of Carthage thrown in.

A fun little card game. Very simple with 2 players. I haven't played with a group yet but see where more than two players would really make it complicated and interesting.

A well deserved award. It is an interesting card game with smart double mechanics. Plus, you can play a game in about 20-25 minutes. Feels very original and merges well hand management with a push-your luck mechanic. Good graphics too. NOTE: if you merge 2 boxes you can actually play it with 5-8 players.

Not really sure what to think about this one - it seems to work OK but not sure how much game is in there - maybe it will make more sense with less whisky!

The auction stage of this card game needs playing out a couple of times before playing the game properly as it can be confusing.
Overall the game is a solid card game but nothing remarkable.

After a 2 players game:
Amerigo is an easy card game with some nice (but not revolutionary) ideas. It flows well but i see a problem: u are doing the same thing over and over again with no "evolution" in what u can do.
Are there different strategies to win ? Well... yes, u have to manage ur hand wisely, look what the other players left "exposed" and do ur calculations. u have to decide if doing short or long voyages. The fact is, u do this over and over again.

Sounded quite cool from reading the rules, but in the end, there was way too little control over selling goods to score decently.

New concept (to me) of using cards. At first rather boring and poor interaction. Played it with four what gave after a while more options of handling goods... but the end was rather poor : once all captains are on shore again.
Gave it a six : at first I thought of giving it a 4.50, but the idea lying underneath made me upgrading it to 6.

1 play, 2er.

Interesting game, although need to try it with more than just 2. It seems like the game would end too quickly with more players, though.

--- Summary ---
Cards have a picture of a boat, 1-3 captain's wheels, and 1 of 5 goods types (in differing rarities in the deck). Start with a hand of ... 4? On your turn, either sail (start a voyage if you're not on one, or continue the current voyage) or market (if you're not on a voyage).

To sail further, play a card with the ship moving to the right -- #wheels adds to distance of voyage. May play out of your hand, or from your score pile (play face down; counts as 3 wheels). OR, explore: rotate last card clockwise, draw cards from deck (2 x distance sailed, hand limit 12). After exploring, must sail home; cards played count 2xwheels -- home when you've played at least the distance of the voyage. Upon arriving home, draw bonus cards (hand limit still applies):
- if voyage was longest distance of all current voyages, 1 card.
- if voyage was 7 wheels, 1 card; 8 wheels, 2; 9+ wheels, 3.

If Marketing, add cards from hand to display; max 12 cards on display. Sort by type of goods. OR, sell cards already on display: sell all possible. Rarest good (looking at all markets on table) worth 1 coin per card. Most popular worth 1 coin/2 cards. All others are common, and worth 1 coin/3 cards. If tied for rarest/popular, goods become common. Sold goods are flipped over to represent coins (added to your score pile) or discarded.

Game ends immediately if, after the first time through the draw deck, all players are at home at the same time; or the 2nd time through the draw deck. Make final sales, with all cards left in hand and on display worth 1 coin/4 cards.

Most money wins.

Simple card game that plays well with two; but I suspect would be better with more players.
The premise is fun and the gameplay is not overly complex. I especially like the idea that the cards are multi-purpose {each card can be part of a voyage or a good for sale or a doubloon[victory point]} (like Race for the Galaxy).

Good filler, The system of going into navigation, explore and then come back to show your goods is really nice. Comment among players on the game: "is another kind of Bohanza?"

Very underwhelming, which is a shame because I really liked the designer's first game, Hanging Gardens. I don't even think we finished the game; everyone wanted to move on to something else.

Quite luck dependent, in terms of what cards you draw. Most turns, you are sailing, and have essentially no choice in what you do on a turn. In particular, you can't do anything related to the market, which is really the key area of the game.

Despite the name of the game, not a game of sailors. It is a game of buying and selling items. Nonetheless, it is a card game interesting, and occasionally play a game calls.
