|Comments:||My edition is from 2004. The designer is Emanuele Ornella. My copy is
number 170 of 700, which sold out in 3 days in Essen 2004. Soon after had
the 2nd edition sold 2000 copies. Amigo has published a big boardgame of
this popular game during 2005.
|Extract from Essen game fair report 2004||After lunch we
continued by ourselves and in hall 9 we tried the game Oltremare
- Merchants of Venice, which we had heard good things about. It has a
few similarities with Bohnanza, but it's definitively a much better card
game, although some might find it more complex. We played it with a German
guy and the rules was presented by its Italian designer Emanuelle Ornella.
Rate 8 of 10, which is high
rating by me for a card game.
