Jamaica Board Strategy Game
Style: Jamaica|Change
Price:£30.49+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime


on 6 October 2015
Jamaica is a very enjoyable game, lovely artwork on the cards, board and tokens, however the playing pieces being plastic cheapen the feel of the game a little bit. The mechanic and theme are good and gives it great replay ability, but sometimes if the cards and dice roles don't go your way you can end up a long way behind and it is then very difficult to catch up.

If you like racing style games I would definitely recommend this as a fun medium length game, it takes up to an hour with 6 players, however It may lack depth for some.

This game is great, really simple but there's you never know what's going to happen. Kind of reminds me of Camel Up in a way, as you're racing around a track but can go back and forward. Watch a video play through and you'll be sold on this.

Bonus points for amazing artwork and one of the best game boxes in my collection.

If you like the really nasty horse racing game , then this is a race game that may appeal. Graphically stunning and plays well.

Amazingly fun game - easy to learn and pick up with enough strategy to keep everyone interested and re-playable. even my 6yr old participated - she loved the theme of pirates was bothered about the actual winning but loved to stay ahead and the battle. Definitely one for family fun. For Hard core gamers probably a couple of house rules to firm up the game - like fighting all ships rather than one on the square and use the ghost ship whether 2 player or more - to make it more cut-throat

The game is still fantastic BUT...if you are looking for the Asmodee version this listing is not it.

The listing is for the Gameworks version and although the game is the same the box is not. The box you will receive is the one with all of the cartoon characters on it.

The box looked better as a chest in my opinion but it doesn't affect the game.

Phenomenal game. It's gorgeous, well built, and has just easy enough basic rules (roll and move) to learn quickly, but enough strategy and tactics to keep more serious players hooked. We've played it with players aged 9 to 49, and everyone's has a great time and has picked up the game quickly. Each game has played out differently... some are a fast race to the finish, some are combat-filled, and some become a gold horde-fest. The cards in your hand can really change how you need to play. A definite great purchase.

An easy game to introduce people to with a hidden depth and complexity to the basic game play. playing the right card at the right moment or the dice the right way around can make all the difference. As a side note the box is a board game fans dream, with separate slots for every component. one of if not the best game to pack away!

From the box, to the rules, to the components, everything in this game is beautifully produced. Simple resource management mechanisms, simple combat, the race and, of course, treasure hunting, all combine to create a fine game.

Me and my friends love playing this game. It's fairly simple to pick up and play but can have a strategic element for more intense board gamers. The quality of the product is excellent. The playing cards are illustrating amazingly, in fact everything has a really great look. The game does have a few more intricate rules which can crop up, but generally easy to play and not too long either.
