Product Description

Judging by the smirk on the face of the Sultan of Solo, the businessman from North Sumatra has just made a mistake -- and a costly one at that, too. He has paid way too much for merging his rubber company with the Sultan's extensive rubber plantations: there are no ships in the area to transport the rubber to the booming cities of Java. And the Sultan is now dripping in cash -- he can bribe city authorities so that his ships will gain preferential access to those ports where they are competing. Or he might invest in building an oil emporium. But wait -- what's that young fellow over there up to? Buying all the shipping lines? That might change the outlook... considerably in fact. Let's see...

Will appeal to the 18xx fan
July 20, 2007

First the bad: The map is large but many provinces are too small and the bits a fiddly. We play with poker chips which helps a bit (and frees up the small 1 and 5 rupiah bits to be used as goods-movement markers).

Then the good: Fairly deep game of industrial growth set in (obviously) Indonesia. Players acquire companies and run various companies that change during the game's three eras. Heart of the game is adroit management of shipping ones products to previously established cities during operation rounds for maximum capital and then using that money to merge your (or others) companies during a merger round.

Highly recommended to fans of the 18xx series. Easily one of the best non-18xx games I've played in many years (only the map/bit fidllyness saved the game from being 5 stars).
