I enjoyed this game. It is very different from any other game I own so it adds a nice variety. My husband was complaining about it the whole time and then ended up winning, so I think for him the jury is still out. We played it the Jamaca rules, and it seemed like just the right amount of thinking/luck that a game of that sort should have.

I really like this game. I'm moving my rating up to a 9. It really is just the right amount of luck and thinking for the amount of time it takes. It fits my sweet spot quite well.

I still have yet to win this game, My husband has won evergame but one. But I still love it.

I finally won. And it wasn't even close.

One of my favourite race games where simplicity doesn't get in the way of strategy. One of the few games where my rating has increased over time because I seem to be unable to get bored with it...

Love it!!, our favourite at this time. Only played with 4 or 5 players so am interested to see how it plays with 2 or 3 players after our IL's go home. DS nearly 6 enjoyed playing too, but impatient waiting for 4 people to go before him lol!!

This is an extremely fun game. The theme is even fun. We generally have 2 players, but have also played with 4 or 5. It works nicely with any of these numbers. The idea of backing up in order to get cards is very clever.

Amazing game! Easy to teach and seems very simple. Played it with non-gamers and they are hooked. Good way to introduce the concept of the meta-game. Play often online at youplay.it (see links)

Unsurpassed in its category (light/medium weight race games), this highly underrated game is a master-class in game design. Its minimalist set of just 3 rules distils all game-balancing mechanisms to their barest dichotomy: spend resources to get closer to your goal, and get further away from the goal to replenish resources! The game is also malleable: one can easily shorten the duration or give a handicap to a weaker player. Cartagena plays equally well (but very differently!) with 2 or 5 players, with non-trivial strategical and tactical options (and a bit of luck to throw in more excitement).

Недооцененная игра!

Еще:
Не стоит забывать про второй, практическии безрандомный вариант игры. И хотя я в осноном играю с друзьями в рандомный, чтобы не напрягать мозг и подравнять шансы, игра не тускнеет с годами (а первый раз я в нее сыграл где-то в 2002-м). Отличное сочетание тактик, блефа, рандома и расчета. Отличные компоненты, обоснованный формат. Также есть почва для введения мелких домашних правил.

I love this game. Every time I introduce it, people are like, oh, it's a race game, cool. Then after 2 turns they are like, oh, wait, I don't have any cards any more.

Yep, because in order to go forward, you must go backwards. That's the only way to gain more cards. So if you want to be first to escape, you have to manage your moving backwards steps to gain most cards, to plan to jump ahead, onto the board and escape from Cartagena!! Excellent game.

I played that game several thousand times online.
A superb game, the best of Leo Colovini.
