    A ship-racing game where 3-6 players secretly-bid matchsticks in order to move from the start (Plymouth) to the finish (The Statue of Liberty). Players who bid the same as one or more others will not move, those that bid uniquely will forge across the ocean and those who bid 'zero' can replenish their hand of matchsticks...all bids are 'spent', you see!

    Each round, a weather card is revealed to adjust the weather chart: from dangerously-stormy to beautiful and bright, which can - at the extremes - affect the movement of ships. In addition, each card has an Event that can hamper or benefit the ships on their journey including an iceberg and a school of whales that forces all players to sail around it in a loop!

    The first player to make it to The Statue of Liberty is the winner!
