This is an entirely open information game for 3+ players. Each player chooses locations for his pieces, then it's a voting/negotiation to kick one another off and make it over to the winning islands alive. Very fun, if contentious, game, entirely reliant on people skills and not making people want to flip the table over.
A great game with no luck that relies only on your ability to negotiate and bluff other players. While stabbing your friends in the back (and having your back stabbed at the same time) might not be for everyone, this game is great for those who play for fun and don't mind having all their sailors drowning in a leaky lifeboat.
