The Plundering Pirate Card Game
Yo-Ho-Ho and a Barrel of Fun! Set sail for an exciting adventure of strategy and skullduggery in this captivating card game. Storm your opponents’ merchant ships and seize valuable treasure. But watch your back, matey – plundering pirates are out to capture your ships as well! The player with the most loot rules the high seas.
Renown game inventor Reiner Knizia has created a highly clever card game that is at once simple to learn and fast to play, while engaging those looking for strategic challenge. We’re particularly fond of playing the team version with the Treasure Island expansion. You and a partner get to look at each other’s cards and conspire moves. Players battle not only on the treacherous seas over the greatest loot, but on the mysterious islands over hidden treasure! We find the game’s even more fun when everyone talks in pirate accents when playing. Give it a try and you’ll be hooked!
