Is there any pattern to the ship flag colors, or is it random? They don’t seem to conform to the functions of the blue riband, coal, cargo, mail, and passenger markers.

By the way, I LOVE this game. While not as clean and direct in it’s interplayer tension as my other favorite, Concordia , the thematic immersion and artwork is wonderful.

Oh, I would have accepted the leprosy alone; but not leprosy and eroticism together, oh no, for the love of God, erotic leprosy?

If I recall correctly, it has been stated somewhere (presumably in the BGG forums) that there is a connection between colour and which company owned the ship.

This is where it comes from. For reasons of playability, there had to be a few adjustments, in order to ensure that each decade comes with exactly two steamships per different flag.
