If you don't like the randomness of die rolls might be best to avoid this one. However there is a tone of mitigation that can be applied, but are you willing to push your luck and risk those precious resources to mitigate that crucial role to help Nemo reach the final challenge. Great production components, deep strategic decisions and lots of replay-ability.
The learning curve in this one is pretty steep but it's worth it - a very detailed game which faithfully captures the world of Nemo and the Nautilus. A must buy for solo game fans, and fans of the book on which the game is based.
Beautifully designed solo game. Every turn you have a myriad of choices. It feels thematic; Nemo against the world.
Highly recommend for any solo player.
It’s a perfect solo game! Theme is very well implemented. All those texts from original story gives a lot of flavour to the game. Since you roll dice for everything it can feel like there is a heavy chance factor but actually it’s all about mitigating risks and taking hard decisions if needed, as if Captain Nemo himself would do!
This is a wonderfully immersive game inspired by the visionary Jules Verne. With attention to detail, and quality components this for me has already seen multiple plays. Thanks to the 4 motives for Nemo, each driving a very different focus on victory point accumulation, each game is very different. Highly highly recommended.
