I created a 30ish minute video explaination and review of Indonesia where I talk through the whole ruleset. It'll give you a good idea if you want to buy the game and will let you see some of the issues with the board discussed here.

Scott,
This episode always times out on me (d/l through iTunes). I can't seem to get it. Do you have a slow server? Or do you have a spike in demand?

thanks for the quality shows (the ones I got so far..)!

Pretty thorough review, Scott!
You didn't mention anything about the language of the game explicitly. It looked English but it is an import...are there multi versions of it that we need to be aware of if we plan to buy it...or is it only done in English? How are the rules? Colourful with tonnes of examples? Or crappy?

Thanks
Peter

"By the end of the game, the board is going to be COVERED with ships and chits..."

I had to go back and listen to that again to make sure you said "ships" and "chits"!

I'm sure it was intentional. Very nice.

There is only one version and it comes with a rulebook that is English on one side and German on the other. There is hardly any language on the board and bits, but what's there, apart from the geographic locations, is in English (R&D track).

I'm not sure - you might have better luck going right to the Internet Archive and getting it from there... (right-click and save from the menu on the left.)

There's only one version with an English translation in the rulebook. Like most of Splotter's games, the rules are sparse and with few examples. They tell you how to play and that's about that.

This is very nice Scott, thanks! I have Indonesia and have read the rules, but have not played...and listening to someone else explain the rules is helping a lot, as I'll have to do the same when I finally do bring the game out.

Scott,

I just wanted to say Thanks for making the great video! I'm a definite visual learner and this helps tremendously when I am thinking about new games that I have never seen in person.

What's your opinion about Indonesia vs. the other two games (R&Bs, Antiquity) from the company. Have you played them before? Any thoughts on "if you could only get one, and why..."?

Thanks and keep up the great work!

Thanks for the video! This pushed me over the fence into the "buy" decision.
