Under rating threshold (show) this game have horrible scoring system. I tried to play the "correct" way so I win at the end with around 40x mil of both tea and opium and I got 77mil score. The next game I go brainless opium selling and LOST me the game but I got 100mil score with 360 tea and 552. winning the game should reward a player for a huge score bonus or there is almost no point to "win" the game

Under rating threshold (show) I figured out how to get the hard badge, and scored 125,000,000. You get a ton of points for the more people you addict to opium for some reason!

Under rating threshold (show) sudden price spike in BOTH opium and tea, as well as a dry spell as far as opium selling prices are concerned right at my final order, keeping me 2 orders of tea away from winning? absolutely unfair.

Under rating threshold (show) Pretty good game, I like the way its based about England for once.It is also good because nearly all games I have played are about America.Also it's based on something that really happened.

Under rating threshold (show) Dang this badge is tough. For rankings like "master smuggler" and "a wealthy retirement awaits" you think the score would be closer to 80 Million. My best so far is only 41 though. Britain needs to stop drinking such expensive tea. Oh well guess I can try again.

Under rating threshold (show) To get hard badge you need to balance everything quickly. The formula for your score = [(# of opium crates sold) * (# of tea crates sold) * 10] (tho early in game scoring is different). So tea is important too & b/c the game ends due to elapsed time it's best to not let Britain's mood drop much b/c that wastes time that in turn will prevent you from shipping tea for the score multiplier (if you're fast enough, Britain will request a shipment of 720+ tea). Note: if you ever forfeit your ship, you forfeit its crates too & that is usually the real loss. The cost of paying is half your silver so I found that if I needed to get risky w/o a bribe card it's best to do so only when I had just over 1000 (you need 1k+ to pay). Save up ~100 opium before 1832 when prices rise. Try to avoid deals w/ 1-9 crates; otherwise you're increasing port's risk factor w/ little to show for it. Having big stockpiles of opium seemed to give me better offers. Hopefully this will help make you a master trader!

Under rating threshold (show) @Ashyen They do pay you for your work with new ships and then eventually faster ships which you get to keep if you should win. Might I add that ships were not real cheap back in the day and still are not :P

Under rating threshold (show) For people complaining about the luck aspect or how hard the game is....SOME of it is luck. But not as much as you'd think. Most of the same events and trends start happening around the same time. DO NOT PANIC IF YOU DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TEA!!!! The 'mood' meter always starts at 'good mood' and slowly sinks. Get 'close' to having enough tea and stop. Use this time to build up money or opium THEN buy your last round of tea before the britts get angry. If you buy same thing repeatedly when super cheap, you'll jack up the prices. Alternate between buying opium and tea (if you want lots of tea while it's cheap but Opium is expensive, for example, buy 30 tea then 5 opium before you buy more tea). This will help keep you from 'flooding' the market. Points come from moving product. Don't make smart moves. Don't make the best moves. MOVE AS MANY CRATES as you can even if the trade doesn't make sense..you'll be surprised how much money you always have this way

Under rating threshold (show) Hard badge wasn't so hard. Got it on my third try. Just learn when the opium or tea markets will crash on the timeline. Also buy a ton of tea and opium, even if there is no order. I suggest buying tea and opium if it's under 50 coins.

Under rating threshold (show) Nice quick game! Played it through twice for both badges. A few tips - there are some times that are deliberately hard to weather ('The price of tea has been at record highs'). Go for bulk trading and keep a high income flow when all is going well. Especially towards the end, you have to start buying tea before they even give you the numbers - any time you have excess cash and the price is even halfway reasonable, just buy.

Under rating threshold (show) It's a pretty good trading game, but in my opinion, I feel that too much of the game is luck-based. You have to hope that certain events go in your favor and that prices are low at the right times to win and I feel like there's way too much luck involved for it. But it's still a nice, small strategy game. 4/5

Under rating threshold (show) Yes, surprisingly fun. This game does a great job of balancing frantic risk and abandon - with cautious resource management and restraint. I was at 690 of 720 tea and the deal for my last 30 was 90% done when my game ended. My score was almost 82 million and I lost by 1 second. :P~ One change request though. The popup messages from the British captain (when you're given a new ship) obscure the ports at the bottom of the screen. Can you add a pause + OK like the other info messages, or reduce the popup window size?

Under rating threshold (show) Got the hard badge with 92.5M pts. Tips: buy and sell as much as possible including taking bad deals and risky deals. At the beginning buy up to about 100 opium first to get adequate capital before you waste it on tea. Aim for the large volume deals even if profit is not huge. If caught I've mostly forfeited except once when you should use your bribe card, bribe card no longer works if you don't use it by about 2/3. If you have a lot of money or not enough ships it might be better to pay. Towards the 3/4 mark there is a deal that halves your opium supply so keep selling it off before that. Buying in large quantities jacks up the price but it also tends to come down if it hits the top so don't worry about stocking up when things are relatively cheap. I find waiting a second or two before the next buy seems to delay the price rises.. Thumbs up if you find this useful.

Under rating threshold (show) I want to know what Great Britian has on me. Because I spend millions of silver coins on their tea for a ship. And when I have all my ships I basically spend tons of coins for a thank you from some buy that looks like a fat Abraham Lincoln. Not cool.

Under rating threshold (show) About the "no-money-for-shipments" thing: What if they guy isn't allowed to use the profits to buy from the chinese, as the british doesn't want silver to flow from britain to china? What if he just keeps all the profits in Britain, for his wealthy retirement?
