User Summary: You are Sandokan the pirate, scourge of the English colonizers of Southeast Asia. Your life, however, changes significantly when you hear about a mysterious woman with golden hair who lives in the island of Labuan.
Guillermo's Thoughts: This book (which includes no rules, only choices) is an adaptation of the novel "The Tigers of Mompracem" by Emilio Salgari. Overall, I found it to be of lower quality than Miguel González Casquell's previous entry in this series, Tu nombre es Robinson. Gameplay feels a lot less strategic in this book, and only one of the endings results in success, making the other paths feel rather pointless. On the positive side, the book is well-written and the story moves at a fast pace. This book is neither a classic nor is it terrible. I would rate it as average.
