Hi,

I was wondering if anyone could identify this board/card game...

It has a card labelled "BECALMED - Lose next two turns".

Thanks

I don't think it is those two games.

The card is light blue & has a person looking over the side of a ship at calm water.

Thanks...

I don't want to know how you stumbled upon this thread 8 years later...hopefully the poor fellow figured it out.

Wow.

Do a Google search for "Becalmed - Lose next two turns".

You'll find this thread, and another thread. Apparently, this guy was trying to snag the answers for a GAMES magazine contest. Dramatic!

Yup, appears they may have reused an image for the most recent contest as well. If you want to the details on the contest, send me a PM!

Actually, I was almost going to post a topic about this contest, as I have about half the cards figured out.

For those wondering, the contest is ALL IN THE CARDS, in the April 2013 issue of GAMES MAGAZINE. They show you 30 pieces of cards from various card & board games, which you have to try to identify. Some are obvious from what's shown, others (such as the one discussed here, which is card # 9) not so much.
