Game of the Month
August 2005
Emanuela Ornella has created an unusual trading game, that finds room in a tiny box. In fact it's a lot of game for little money, because even though the game board and the pawns are tiny, the game immediately evokes the feeling of classical mediterranean trade. Especially interesting is the use of a special 'ordered cards' mechanic, that reminds of Bohnanza, and is very difficult to master. Moving on the board is also tricky, as your ship gets isolated and deprived of bonus markers very easily. A very interesting game that demands communicative skills as well as grey matter. Recommended!
