I'm not familiar with that one, although its BGG page lists Bruno Faidutti as the designer so it's probably pretty good - he's created a number of great games over the years.

-----------------


I did get the chance to finally play Merchants & Marauders this past weekend, and it was absolutely awesome.


Each player gets their own unique captain (each with his/her own stats and special abilities) and a starter ship, and then you can go around running cargo between ports, harass merchant ships, run missions, check out rumors (for extra points), and you can even attack other players. NPC Pirates and Pirate-hunters pop out at various times and they'll move around the board chasing players. Once you've built up a good supply of gold you can buy better ships, add upgrades, and recruit more crew.

Basically, it's like a boardgame version of Sid Meier's Pirates!, minus the annoying "dancing" minigames.

I'm definitely going to pick up my own copy of it as soon as possible. Very Happy

I looked at the Merchants and Maraders game and it looks sweet! Very Happy Like Woelf, I can't wait to get ahold of a game for myself!
