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.
