On the ship tile that lets you "Advance all your Gods on the God Track in the row showinng the number of players participating in the game. After using a special action of a god, return it to that row instead of the lowest row." Does it let you benefit from other player rolls every turn? Since you are actually never on the lowest row on any of the God Tracks you should be able to get up one step every other players turn.

We had issues with this tile since it seemed really unbalanced.

In short, yes (unless other players roll a die matching only gods you have on the top row ie. ready to use).

In long, read this long post about this very question here:

Hi Ernesto,

what makes you think this ship tile is out of balance?

I feel this tile is not balanced for the different player count. While in 2 player games seems to be ok. In 4 player games where you benefit from 3 player rolls every round instead of an average of 0-1 on the early turns seems way too much. In my opiniom thos tile should work different for the different count of players maybe like the Mercator ex Tabriz in Marco Polo.

It does, since the starting row for the gods is determined by the number of players.

Not only will you benefit from raising your gods during the other 3 players turns, the other strong effect of this ship ability is that when you use the god power you set the god token back to the row of the 4 player game showing, that's extremely powerful.

Actually, you set it back to the row where it started. Meaning, in a two-player game, it returns to the "cloud" showing the symbol for 2 players.
