Is the game intended to be component limited? We played a 6 player game last night, and everyone started hording coins as the end of the game closed on the end. We ended up in a situation where we ran out of coins. We couldn't find a mention of it in the rules. Do the rules provide guidance on this that we missed?

We decided, much to the ire of the poor soul who blundered into the issue, that for practical reasons, they were out of luck. Was that correct?

Did you follow the rule stating that you cannot load into an occupied hold without first emptying it?

I, and others, have reported running out of coins. We used poker chips, but then I replaced all the coins with these:





I think the package came with 144 coins, don't remember but a lot more than the cardboard ones that came with the game.

We did. There were a lot of holds with 5-6 coins. Whole bunch of Spanish treasure galleons sailing around Port Royal...

Doesn't seem like there is a solid answer. Poo!

every time we've played jamaica (4 players), we've either run out of coins, food, or both tokens during each play... so we took food and money tokens from other games to supplement jamaica
