Description

From the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869 to the beginning of WWI in 1914, there was an amazing development of bigger, faster, and more modern steamships. Whereas in 1870 there are still many clippers around and the good old paddle steamer "Scotia" sails the North Atlantic, sea trade is dominated by the end of the game by huge vessels like "Mauretania"(Cunard), "Olympic"(White Star), or "Imperator"(Hapag).

2 to 4 players lead their own shipping companies, which transport freight, mail, and passengers around the globe. They purchase new steamships from the market, each of them historical with their individual technical data (tons, knots etc.). Competition is tough especially in the North Atlantic, where winning the "Blue Riband" is not only a matter of prestige, but may also be a profitable investment. In order to let a shipping company flourish, purchasing the best steamships is not enough, if one fails to acquire enough coal bunkers and trade posts as well. The game is driven by cards: on each turn play one card, and execute the related action. As new cards enter the game, build your individual deck of cards with new or improved possibilities. The task is to manage your merchant fleet most efficiently. It's a maritime strategy game with low luck, lots of interactive choices, and tough decisions.

Great Service

Great service as always and good value in a pre release kit. Looking forward to doing one in person again.

fast and reliable. many other stores were out of stock or they took my money then refunded because their system wasn't updated correctly and product were out of stock. Athena did it well and I1m very happy with the speed they have delivered with

Very nice looking without any flaws, good value for money!

Good price

Good deal for a good price excellent customer service, got what I need definitely be buying more Vanguard in the near future.

Thank you Athena Games

Great service and they even threw some cards in

Fantastic delivery times and product was perfect. Pulled a ghost rare in one of the boxes however it had terrible cutting errors, no fault to Athena for this ofcourse, the blame is with konami for their awful quality control of the GFTP. I almost threw out the couple of cards they chucked in with the package too as I didn't see them when I first opened the box 😂🤣
