Alex, Craig and I stormed our way around Kap Hoorn. I was lucky enough to pick up three '3' strong tiles in the first 4 or so goes which allowed me to charge into the lead. Despite numerous pu ... I mean hosage attempts, I was able to get three different coloured tokens from each zone just as Alex and then Craig were making their way into zone 3. Craig's comment: "You spend so much time trying to pus the other players, you sometimes forget that you have your own go as well"

The good thing about the hosage in this game is that you have to plan in advance and the leaders are able to hose the other players often just as effectively. It then becomes a ballet of plan and counterplan.

I give this a PGA rating of 7 after 3 plays for a good game I like to play, borderline buy. Best with 3 players, ok with 4. With more players, the control slips. It does have somewhat of a catch the leader problem, but this may be alleviated with more playings and more experience with tile play (ie Hosage 101). It's themed quite well with boats tacking back and forward finding the good wind. Alex's comment: "Yep, that's quite good, I'd play that again" which is praise indeed from the games-taskmaster.
