In this game of world exploration and empire building, players represent European empires seeking to colonize the Mediterranean and devise trade routes to ship their wares to all parts of the world in their quest to increase their empire's glory and status in Industry, Culture, Finance, and Politics. It is a time when the maps of the world are still being filled in. Seagoing empires expand their frontiers by sending ships to the farthest reaches of the globe in search of new lands, new alliances, and new conquests. The wealth of the newly-discovered worlds abroad is a tempting prize for those with the strength and the cunning to seize it... and to hold it!
