    The sequel to Ancient Trader is a funny pastime thanks to the speed of gameplay and a disengaged approach, suitable, as a Board-Game, to animate evenings with friends.

    Fortune Winds: Ancient Trader is a casual game, no doubts on this. But you will surely enjoy what Legendo Entertainment has done by mixing elements from boardgames and the old rock-paper-scissors.

    A port too far for this sumptuously drawn indie strategy game. [Oct 2012, p.92]
