    Description

    Players start from Europe and sail to distant countries to collect treasures and transport them back to Europe, in order to sell them.

    Contents:

    • Board with an illustrated map of the world (exluding America) that is overlayed by a grid (for moving). The word CAPRICORN is written on the board and it has also spaces for stack of cards (black, red and yellow).
    • Three decks of cards:
      • Black Action cards (e.g. "riot on a ship"),
      • Red Item cards (e.g. "pumps, rations, compass...")
      • Yellow Treasure cards (e.g. "gems, spices...")
    • Game money (banknotes), which is named Rix (in Alga's Swedish edition, however, the currency lacks a name).
    • A ship and a sailor carrying a gun and barrel (of rhum?) as playing tokens. The sailor represents an entire crew.
    • Die (Alga's Swedish edition contains two dice.)

    This game was owned by Kuvataide Bildkonst and published in Finland; and then licensed to Alga for publication in Sweden; both events took place in the 1960's.
