Cartagena Ii (Cartagena 2)
From the Publisher...
In the first Cartagena game, the players, as pirates, attempted to flee prison by making their way through a tunnel to a boat waiting for them at the end of the tunnel. But simply reaching the boat does not mean they have escaped as re-capture is always possible, perhaps, even likely. They will not be really safe until they reach their Pirate's Nest on Tortuga.
Each player leads a group of pirates to Pirate's Nest on Tortuga.The path leads the pirates through wild jungle and across the waters of open ocean to the island of Tortuga. In addition to the innate perils of the trip are the other pirates, as each group wants to be the first to arrive at Pirate's Nest and will do what they can to slow the others' progress. As soon as one player has all his pirates in Pirate's Nest, he can raise the Jolly Roger and win the gam

|I loved the original Cartagena but when I went to buy it, I had the choice between the original and this game Cartagena 2. I was glad with my choice of the second game. It moves a little more quickly because to draw cards you have to move opponents further along the board rather than move yourself backwards. You have to watch carefully to take advantage of chains of covered symbols and try to disrupt those chains so your opponents can't use them. A good mix of strategy and planning. Very accesible for families and a lot of fun!
|A quick, fun game that has elements of strategy, luck, and a bit of screw your opponents. The new card drawing mechanic can help people who seem woefully behind catch up. Our first game looked like a run a way victory for one person at first but came very close at the end. Easy for adults and kids to play together.
|A simple candyland-like experience with pirates. Good for hooking your younger gamers, and also a good diversion that doesn't last too long.
