This is a great game!! At first, I thought it was just a matter of getting my ship with gold back to the port to win. But there is a tornado that can mess up your route. Also, if you have to take on too much gold, your ship tips and loses all the gold so it's back to starting over. The strategy of the game is constantly changing because you never know when the tornado might come to your island. A great game by Rio Grande, and I love the wooden pieces--great job!!
