has captured the mystique
of blue water racing by simulating the sailing elements of changing winds,
changing tides, tacking, racing strategy (block your opponent's wind!!!) and
nautical knowledge to enjoy anytime, anywhere, at your command.
A roll of the cube determines whether the driving force that propels your boat
will be by knowledge or by chance.
challenging questions (many in true/false and multiple choice format) will test
your knowledge of nautical history, the America's Cup, historic lighthouses,
navigation, boating safety, famous shipwrecks, infamous pirates and world
geography. The "Jolly Roger" and "Treasure Chest" chance cards are designed to
impact the outcome of the race with unpredictable variables based on actual
sailing situations. Just when you thought it was smooth sailing, a "Jolly Roger"
hurricane card blows all boats off course out to open sea!!!
Nautical Trivia is played with one player (captain) for each sailboat or groups
may divide into crews for each boat and choose a captain. Two, three or four
sailboats may compete in a race.
Nautical Trivia is designed to challenge sailors of all ages and anyone with
a desire to experience the sport of sailing.

“If it’s wet outside and you’re confined below, while away the time with
Nautical Trivia …Design your own racecourse, then power your sailboat marker
around it, with your extensive knowledge of things maritime its driving force…As
an old salt you can’t lose, right? Wind direction can change at the roll of a
die or at the whim of a card, the tide can turn and leave you aground, or you
can flub the answers to the questions and remain stationary-just like real
sailboat racing”. Jeremy McGeary (New Products),
“Nautical Trivia is a great distraction from those afternoon doldrums. Playing
this challenging sailing game incorporates many of the variables incurred under
sail…It’s a good time and there is something here for every level”.

“The game asks players to agree on a course around Bermuda...then roll a die to
decide whether they receive a nautical question, a treasure trove card that
helps them or a black skull card that hinders them...with beautifully made
pewter playing pieces of little heeling sailboats and good questions, this game
should provide entertainment for many hours...” Tim
