TableTop Fun: Fleet

A game about Canadian Fishing Fleets... only sold in the US. :|
From BoardGameGeek:

In the northwest corner of Nunavut, Canada, a formerly inaccessible bay off of the Arctic Ocean has become reachable through a secret inlet. Untouched by the hands of time and fed by both the ocean and warm fresh water springs, Ridback Bay is teeming with sea life. A remote, timeless bayside village is now being inundated by entrepreneurs awaiting the influx of the world's greatest fisherman to harvest this plentiful bounty. The docks and warehouses are being revitalized, and now it is time to begin the real adventure. Go build your Fleet and become master of the high seas!

It's basically an auction strategy card game. I didn't think that I would enjoy bidding but I do - except when Ian is involved. Me: I'll start the bidding at $4 on Char. Ian: I bid $15. :| Ridiculous! A fishing fleet is pretty simple theme but the artwork does it justice. It's one of my top five games at the moment.
Emma going after pieces as always. :)
