From the Publisher...

It is 1821, and for 250 years the Philippine Islands have been under the thumb of the Spanish crown. But, in the end, the Spaniards do not really control everything. In the shadow of the colonial power, self-willed natives have established secret maritime trade with neighboring islands and the Asiatic mainland. Using odd-looking punts and fragile bamboo barks, these black market traders cram their boats with nutmeg, silk, jade, and ginseng, and set sail to smuggle them into MANILA. Succes in each venture is uncertain, as the seaworthiness of both boats and captains is poor. To add to their woes, pirates lie in wait to plunder boats that cannot escape them.

Given all this, it is not surprising that wares that reach the black markets in MANILA command high prices, making the venture worth the risk for those who succeed. The black market dealers use accomplices to ensure they get the wares, bribe pilots to aid their cargoes and hinder others, and insure their cargoes against failure. And a few wealthy merchants hire pirates to attack the black market boats and secretly pocket the profits from these raids.

Mr Waiguoren

Manila is not often mentioned alongside better known "gateway" games, but it is an excellent gambling game that is always a hit in our group. The mix of gambling roulette style every round with the stock market mechanic makes this game truly unique and worth checking out.

Gamepug
Rio Grande has made another beautiful game with excellent components. This game is real hit with my family, the combination of betting and commodity speculation makes an enjoyable game. This is a great game for your game collection.
