|Pressetext:||Players take the role of merchants striving for a position among the 'Seventeen Lords', the board of directors of the richest company that ever existed... a company whose properties ranged from South Africa to Japan and comprised most of what is now called Indonesia! Founding the VOC is a medium complexity game, somewhat simpler than Bus or Ur, which can be played in one to two hours. The game includes: an investment market where players jointly invest to send out ships; a futures market, where you sell your goods before you have actually bought them, let alone brought them back home; original 16th-century artwork showing a map of the Orient, on which you will have to manouver your ships without being able to determine your exact longtitude; and stringent competition from 'Amsterdam', a merchant that is controlled by the game.|
The game contains two sets of rules, one suitable for gamers with tough negotiation skills, and one for those who prefer lighter games.
