It's the roaring '20s and fortunes can be made steaming across the wild oceans. You have ships full of passengers and precious cargo, but can you handle pirate robbers, terrifying storms and a stockmarket crash that might devalue your goods? To succeed, you'll need a captain's steady nerve and the help of Lady Luck to land your cargo where it's needed.
Win points for your shipping company by completing Contracts. Pick up the required goods or passengers at their source, then navigate the high seas to deliver to a port where they are wanted. Be sure to load more cargo than you need to deliver, as there are many hazards along the way, and pirate thieves hiding among the waves.
With a choice of Private or Public Contracts, two ships in your charge, and multipurpose Action cards, there are hard choices and many paths to victory, as well as some 'take that' options to thwart your opponents.
