I just found this game at a thrift store today for like $4.50. upon opening the box i found that the contents are still sealed. My guess is that this was a gift for someone who didnt realise the type of game it is and it was donated.

What i found most interesting was the story on the manual... A little story about how Dominic used to captain a fiahing boat, and one day was out on the water and his boats electronics systems were disabled so he had to guide himself home via navigating the north star.

Wtf is this true??? It sounds almost ridiculous but holy crap! I cant imagine being in that position!

Don't feel bad. I'm happy the game found a loving home and will get played. Nothing is worse than having your game sit unused.

And I should mention there is one part of the story that isn't true. I didn't guide our boat by the North Star. It was raining. But I did choose the company name because of how it relates to my fishing in Alaska adventures, so I tried to find a way to tie it into the story.
