Well call me cheap, but I am wondering if you could use all the components from this game to play the original Cartagena? I am curious if the card/board distribution matches or is even close to the original. If so I would pick this up because I am a fan of the original and I think I would also enjoy this version, based on what I have read so far.

One set has 6 elements, the other has 7. This could make a difference in how quickly the pirates travel.

Yes, there are 7 symbols instead of 6 in this version. Consequently, the card deck increases from 17*6=102 cards to 15*7=105 cards. Additionally, one card of each symbol has a gold border, which forces other players to discard down to 7 cards.

I like the new version quite a bit and will happily own both.
