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.

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.

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

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.

It's a fun little card game in a group of people. It was worth what I paid for it, which I think is a solid recommendation.
