Really enjoyed my first game of "Sail To India". Easy to learn - quick to play - lots of chrome. And cheap. It ticks all the right boxes. I got hammered by my opponents, but I'm looking forward to redressing the balance soon.
The only thing about the game that bothers me is the name. "Sail to India" is a bit prosaic. Perhaps it sounds better in Japanese? I'll bet it would sell better in the English-speaking world with a catchier title.
Can anyone suggest an alternate name that Mr Hayashi might consider rebranding the English version of the game with? "Navigador", "Age of Discovery" and "Vasco da Gama" appear to be taken. Perhaps there's a pithy phrase in Portuguese from the period that would work?
