HUMBOLDT’S GREAT VOYAGE (R & R Games/Huch!, 2 to 4 players, ages 10 and up, 45-60 minutes; $39.99)
Human beings share at least one trait: they always want to know what lies beyond the horizon. So it was the case with Prussian nobleman Alexander von Humboldt who embarked on a voyage of discovery to the Americas. Between 1799 and 1804, Humboldt explored and described what he saw for the first time from a modern scientific point of view earning him a considerable amount of contemporary fame. Now players, as adventurers (or traders or scientists of that time) find themselves captivated by his adventures and seek to follow in the footsteps of Humboldt’s Great Voyage.
