Comments: My edition is from 2000. The designer is Marcel-André Casasola Merkle. There is only a German edition of the game.

Mutiny (=meuterer) on high seas! Everyone has signed on the merchant ship to earn as much victory points as possible by selling their commodities. The merchant gets the best prize in a trade and the loading-clerk can choose his new commodities. The mutineer however has some other ideas: together with the ship's boy he'll try to overthrow the captain. On the other hand the captain tries to keep in control and hopes the boatswain will help him.

The game is played in 9 phases:
- Decide about captain card
- Offering of commodity cards
- Turn up action cards
- Activate mutiny
- Distribute victory points
- Move ship
- Remove destination cards, discard commodity cards
- Draw commodity cards
- Put action cards in the middle

Gives a certain feel of Ohne Furcht und Adel, which I liked immediately. A simple, but challenging game. You also need a pen and a scoring block to play the game.
