Homemade copy. Awesome!

A nice change of pace for Hansa, which I always felt suffered a bit from having a static board. The game-ending bonus points add some extra goals to keep in mind, though I feel this board is a bit more difficult to navigate. I rate this slightly higher than the original.

UPDATE: I now rate both the original and this variant map a "10," although I think the bonus scoring options improve the game with their added tension.

But either way, either map, Hansa is, in my opinion, Schacht's best design and a new classic that will hopefully see a new English publication since Uberplay closed its doors.

Printed, mounted & played as an alternative map. I only play Hansa with the expansion and extra endscore rules, so you can the arrows in every direction, when you pay 2 Taler.

A nice change! The addition of more arrows on land and sea and the ability to travel against the arrow both seem to open the map up. You're now playing more of the game (i.e., more moving to good ports and buying/selling goods) and less the map, if that makes any sense (e.g., in the basic game, control of Reval and Riga can be overly important, especially in the 2-player game). The scoring bonuses give you something else to keep your eye on -- you CANNOT ignore them since they can result in a pretty big point swing (up to 10 points, for example, if you take the lead in number on 1-barrel goods sold from someone). I think this works better with 3- or 4-players, where it seems to balance things out better (less turn-order-screwage) with the added end-game bonuses. With 2, I'd probably prefer the original game?

Map Changes
1. Several arrows have been changed and new ones added
2. Some cities have a different number of goods tokens

Rule Changes
1. Ship movement:
* 2 coins: move the ship against the arrow direction
2. Endgame Bonuses (generous ties -- all tied players earn points)
* 2 points: tallest stack of market booths
* 3 points: triggered the end of the game (RESUPPLIED from the last pile)
* 4 points: most cities with 1 or more market booth
* 5 points: sold the most one barrel goods

ASL ... yes, this is my Desert Island Game. If I have to give up all my 3000+ games and only allowed to keep one, this would be it. This bloody game stood the test of time. Around for more than 25 years - simply the best.

Nice change from the city connections in basic Hansa. The scoring bonuses really change the strategies and add tension. Still too abstract and dry to hit the table often.

We break this out now and again. A fun change of pace from the original board. I love the new rule wherein you can go backwards against an arrow for 2 gold (normal movement costs 1 gold). Been thinking of adding this rule into the main game...

[UPDATE] have decided to not add this rule into the main game.

Finally, after many years, I played Hansa with this map. I'm not sure I like it. The rule that you can pay 2 to double back on a route seems like it upsets the map, but that's not actually the case: if you want to go from city A to B over a seabound arrow in the wrong direction, there is always a route following 2 arrows in the right direction. The exception are the landlocked routes. In other words, that rule was not actually necessary, and the topology has been altered to allow for more local shipping. Especially the latter effect is, I think, not a good change. The extra bonus points provide extra incentive to play the game in a certain way, and that is something I do like... So all in all I think the end verdict is that I would add those bonuses to the basic map and be done with it.

I'm happy that I own this map (a promo from Abacus), but it's not a map I need to play again anytime soon.
