One of the best. Only two things hold it back from a 10/10: the dark green color looks waaay too much like the neutral color, and there are a couple of spots where the borders aren't perfectly clear in the map graphic.

In every other respect it's amazing - balance is terrific, there is no dominant strategy, the scenarios are all balanced, lots of fog settings work... I could go on and on. I guess one weakness is that my name isn't on the map for some inexplicable reason.

Lucked out by winning my first game here. I'll be coming back to play this board, and figure out how to improve my strategy based on the several options for getting bonuses. Very interesting gameplay and visuals.

Really enjoy the land/sea element with sea spaces being critical but also requires expanding one's borders. Low number of fortifies requires some tough decisions early on. Supports a variety of strategies.

I know this board is highly rated by a number of players but i'm not its biggest fan. I think it needs more practice that i'm willing to give it. I'm not a fan of the graphics and think the game play could do with being a little clearer.

Great board. Feels quite balanced in the games I've played. The seas are fun to experiment with.

Probably too complicated for me at this stage. Will need to revisit this board as I gain experience.

More difficult as one has to control the sea lanes to get to unconnected land masses. Direct approaches should require one to defeat a "3" versus a "2" to advance.

Man, this board can be really frustrating. I always fail with my initial moves, but once you get out to the sea...ahhhh bliss!
It's hard to come up with a clear strategy, I like to get my hands on the smaller islands and grow from there.
For me the perfect scenario involves 6 players, 3v3 or 2v2v2.
Try it. You're gonna like it.

Great idea, great layout, love/hate the graphics.

I have had games go all sorts of different directions, which is a great sign. Some people turtle and win, some people are aggressive and win. Just be careful when looking at which territories border which water. It's not always clear and you can work yourself into a corner unintentionally.

I love the gameplay on this board. Each time I play I see new strategies developing -- there isn't one linear strategy or location on the board that is better than another, almost anything can be effective if you think it through. Having bonuses develop by controlling a sea territory and an adjacent land territory adds a nifty angle to the game, and affects much more than you might think at first. Great board!

Love the look of this board, not too flashy, but nice and crisp and good to look at. Gameplay is the focus though, and i love it when a gameplay focused board looks this nice. The mechanics are awesome. Very original and intriguing ideas that promote unique strategy. If you don't read the description, you'll be toast, but it's not too difficult to understand either. This board is absolutely brilliant.

Very fun board. Interesting strategies involve controlling coastlines vs. the deep sea, which makes for varied play. All in all, an engaging board.
