Description

The one we used to play instructed players to have the card deck face down first of all so no-one knew what event was coming next and then, on the first reshuffle, to turn it face up so all the players would know what event was in the pipe even if they couldn’t control when it would happen and to keep flipping it round on each reshuffle. Gradually, in spite of the best efforts of the other players, you’ll get ore into the warehouse and be able to flog it off in exchange for pounds. There are several auction houses that specialize in Rare Games such as this, they are Heritage,(https://www. Essentially complete apart from some missing ‘gems’ (there should be 15 in each colour but blue and white are missing one each, red and green missing 2 each.

No, it’s the event cards you have to take on a 1 or a 6 that cause major problems because they’re tied in to specific circumstances.Indeed I admire the way in which this game limits the amount of screwage you can inflict on other players partly based on skill: good players won’t get shafted by their competitors so often because they’ll have a balanced operation and there will be no point. The game consists of a playing board, 12 mine derricks (2 of each of 6 colours), 6 lorries, 5 barges, 2 ships, 90 pyramids (15 of each of 6 colours), 94 cubes (24 of each of 6 colours), 26 Production Cards, 6 Canal Company Title Deeds, 2 Production Debit Cards, 1 die and paper money comprising sterling and dollars.

But there’s another catch - barges only get a permit to leave port if they’re fully loaded and if, as is the usual case, you don’t have enough ore to fill it up you have to transport other players ore for them.Barges are slightly slower and considerably more expensive than lorries, but have the advantage that they can carry five units (at least two of which must be the player's own). The Antique Game, by Wilfred Paul Heath 1936, believed to be the prototype to the Battleship game he created.
