Pirate and hunting-themed board games are nothing new, and the large proliferation that saturate the market these days often leave gamers less than satisfied or indifferent. Martinique is that rarity in gaming which involves a bit of strategy, yet is easy enough for anyone to grasp. Neither overlong or boring, Emanuelle Ornella's brilliant creation manages to keep players engaged with action from the very start. acting as pirate captains digging for buried treasure and other important items. The player who first either locates the Lost Treasure(rumored to be buried on the island of Martinique according to legend) or should the Lost treasure not be found accumulate the most small treasure points at the end wins.
My initial impression upon opening the game was an unassuming one. The game board is simply laid out as a gridded 8 by 8 map of Martinique, numbered 1-8 vertically and A-H horizontally. This row/column configuration would be used to provide the coordinates necessary for locating the hidden treasure. Souvenir tiles representing rifles, small treasure, parrots, rum, skull, etc., are placed randomly face up throughout the board. map tiles face down. The four center spaces at the center of the board announcing itself as The Hook Bar are left clear, but is also represented more explicitly to the side w/ bartender and stools, along w/ two map and joker tiles are placed there. Each of the two players lead a crew of four loyal pirates, with a minimum of 3 placed around the island's shore before they can begin exploring.Read more ›
Understandably, this is not a game that heavy gamers are going to like. It's not supposed to be a heavy BGG Top 100 game though some reviewers may not understand that games don't need to take 3 hours and have 30 page rule books to be fun. This is a light game with light deduction perfect with an evening cup of coffee and about 30 minutes of time.
Amazing deal! Fun game.
