As a huge fan of Automobile AND Aeroplanes, I'm looking forward very much to this one.
It's the main reason I decided to subscribe to the 2014 Treefrog lineup.

It's one of the 3 reasons I'm tempted to subscribe.

I decided to wait for A Study in Emerald and now the game's even more expensive to buy, and shipping is murder.
I won't get bit again.

Well, Mythopia was announced for July, and Onward to Venus is touted as being made ready for Spiel (in October), so I'm guessing we'll get Ships around Christmas?
Fingers crossed.

Yeah, I was thinking so as well, but I was a little bit confused that it was announced as the second game in the subscribtion, and looking on the publishing dates of the other two, it will probably arrive as the third.

Just played Ships today, IMHO if you like Automobile then you will like Ships.

Is your score positive? You win! (Some players win more than others.)

Bother. I hate Automobile.
Specifically, I hate:
1) It's a two-hour game with eight to twelve decision points (three actions per round, one of which has to be Produce, and maybe choice of CEO).
2) Demand, and hence payout, is so highly variable as to be nearly random.

Am I gonna regret having subscribed to Ships?

The old (wrong) classic.
The real game starts once you understand that demand is NOT what matters in Automobile.

I'm eagerly waiting for Ships!
Still no news about availability? Not ready or even playable for Essen, right?
