A recent Funagain sale advertised copies of Hansa bundled with the "Compass expansion"; does anyone know what this is? I don't see it doing a quick search of the forums, nor do I see an entry in the database for such a thing. Is this the same as the Extrakarte expansion?

It looks like a gimmick: you spin a small compass and when it stops it determines if the ships will move with or against the wind.

You can achieve the same result by rolling a D6: 1-3 normal movement, 4-6 reverse movement...

Now in the database as Hansa: The Compass.
