Product Description

The infamous dockside bars of Shanghai can get pretty rough. More than one sailor wandered in for nothing more than a quick drink only to wake up, head pounding, in the cabin of a tramp steamer. And so this recruitment method, favored by unscrupulous Captains, came to be known as being "Shanghaied"!

The notorious Captains Ramon "El Dado" and Terrible Michael are fighting over who will put together the best crew. They have agreed to roll dice for them -- while thinking nothing of using dirty tricks to get ahead!

Tense, fun and easy!
February 09, 2009

There are a lot of short two-player games out there. But most of them are card-games, and many of them feel very much alike. That is why I am so thrilled that there seem to have risen a new two-player genre: Two-player dice games. So Far I have only been able to track down three games of this type. Of these three Shanghaien is probably the best. But I have also enjoyed Lost Banditos and Burgenland from schmidt's easy-play line. These three games have been a huge hit with my female non-gamer friend. Because they are short, easy and exciting I can get her to play a round or two at almost any time.

If you are one of those gamers who bought a lot of games from kosmos two-player line like lost cities, balloon cup and odin's ravens two play with your girlfriend etc, I would advice you to try out these two player dice games.
