From the Publisher...

A fleet of commerce ships lies aside the quays, waiting to be loaded with valuable goods. An assortment of goods will fill the captain's bill, as his crew readies the ship for the sea.

You are a prominent merchant trying to fill your warehouse with the goods these captains need to fill their holds. A ship's captain will only accept goods from one merchant, so quickly collecting the right combination of goods is the key to victory. Fill your warehouse with care and spend your guilders with prudence!

Tary not, and let not a moment pass before you load your goods, for the fleet will leave the harbor with the whim of the winds! If you wait too long, your precious goods may spoil before you fill a captain's hold!

Can you keep your merchant empire running Before the Wind? Or will the winds of Fortune blow ill upon you?

Each copy of Before the Wind contains:
120 action cards (40x purchase, 40x storage, 40x shipment/income)
60 goods cards (15x apples, 15x spices, 15x silk, 15x cheese)
60 Guilders cards (24x 1s, 12x 2s, 12x 5s, 12x 10s)

Customer Raves - Write your own Rave about this game!
(Click on a person's name or game group to see other raves by the same person or group.

Set collection and auctions are featured in a lot of Euro-style games nowadays, but Before The Wind has something to spice things up - acutions are done in a way that promotes fierce competition and the possibility of making other pay dearly for the cards they need. It is very competitive and confrontational, which gives a surprising amount of energy to a game that is still in essence set collection. It works great with a group, but also with just 2 players.
