Batavia

Batavia Maker:  Queen Games Number of players: 3-5 Age: 10+ Length: 60 minutes Magnificent sunsets, exotic flora and fauna, the aroma of finest spices in the air – the Far East has always had a magical appeal to adventurers, soldiers of fortune, explorers, traders and merchants.Around 400 years ago, merchants in many different countries organized themselves into companies so that they could send larger fleets of ships to the Far East. They hoped for huge profits from these voyages, because spices such as pepper and nutmeg were quite literally worth their weight in gold.

Trying to see how pieces fit and re-assessing where they might go when they don’t fit is a good exercise in checking and re-evaluating choices. Each piece can only go in to one place so there is none of the compromising and trading-off that takes place in so many other aspects of modern life. This forces the player to constantly re-evaluate their decisions, and teaches patience with the process as it is an integral part of the game.
