About

Sea of Plunder is a fun, light strategy game with a treasure hunting theme in which you are a merchant ship sailing across the endless sea, racing to reach mysterious treasure islands while at the same time gathering goods from port cities, dodging pirates, getting pushed around by hurricanes, and stealing cargo from the other merchants/treasure hunters!

In Sea of Plunder you will attempt to use wise hand management to race your opponents to the elusive and very valuable treasure islands. Also swing by the port cities to pick up 4 different types of goods to score major points through set collection. Use your discard to direct the pirates into your opponents’ path, but don’t forget to choose what you discard carefully because your opponents might find the card tempting! Even when your competitors or unexpected event cards foil your plan, it is easy to make a new one with the help of magical compass tokens and multi-use cards!

 14 sided dice are not the only custom goodies we plan for you to receive in your box! The Custom Meeple Challenge is where your involvement will help to unlock 5 new, never before seen Custom Boat Meeples! Each meeple will be based on the style and culture of the Port Cities.

Made for the family!

This is a game that is perfect for the family! It has been heralded as a Gateway game with simple mechanics that allow both young and old to grasp, but take time to master! All of the art is 100% family friendly!

Unique/Custom Dice and Meeples!

We have worked hard to make our game unique! We want it to be different than any other game on your shelf! For this reason we have added in custom 14 sided dice and new, never before seen boat meeples. We plan to have 5 uniquely different boats, each one resembling a different style and culture!

100% Color Blind Friendly

We have taken great care to make sure that Color Blindness will not be an issue or anyone that backs this campaign! With our custom dice and meeples there are plenty of difference besides color to help players determine each items owner and role in the game (If you feel that we might have missed something please let me know!) 

The Seas are Endless!

Sea of Plunder has more than enough going on for it to be a stand alone game! Yet there are still plenty of uncharted waters to be sailed in this universe! In the future we plan to release "Sea of Plunder: Curse of the Kraken". This an expansion that is currently in the initial phases of playtesting that allows the addition of a 5th Player that will take on the role of a ship-thirsty Kraken. It also brings in ancient and mysterious artifacts of immense power!

We are asking for your support to help make this game a reality. We need your support to raise money for the printing of this game in a large enough quantity that it can be offered to gamers like you at an affordable and economic price!

Three Nail Games is a company whose mission is to make high quality games that are going to bring together families and friends to build memories that last a lifetime! Sea of Plunder is exactly that type of game!

Risks and challenges

Sea of Plunder is our first Kickstarter Project! We have been building relationships in the industry by working and communicating with experienced manufacturing and fulfillment companies! (Manufacturing-Panda Game Manufacturing) (Fulfillment-Quartermaster Logistics)

We are very proud of the game that we have now but this is a crowd funded game, and in the spirit of crowdfunding, we look forward to your feedback. This feedback has the potential to cause us to change minor details. One of the already built in changes would be our "Batten Down The Hatches" pledge level that will then insert a backers name into a cards flavor text. Small changes like these take time but we have already begun submitting non-changeable graphics to our manufacture to help speed up this process!

One of our more lofty goals in producing this game is the need for 2 custom 14 sided dice! This is a very exciting endeavor and our manufacturer assures us that this shouldn't be a problem!

Shipping world wide efficiently and quickly is a concept that I have very little experience with. For this reason we are handing over fullfillment to Quartermaster Logistics. We have great faith in the companies we have chosen to work with and have great expectations to be able to hit our fulfillment deadline!

No matter how much planning goes into something, it is inevitable that there will always be a curve ball at some point in the process. When these arise, you can count on us to do everything we can to fix the issue as fast as possible and to give you transparent updates on the project details regularly! We welcome your questions and feedback and Thank you for your support!
