Enter the mysterious Caribbean Sea. Here famed pirates scour the seas searching for fame and fortune. Only the strongest, smartest and quickest come out on top. Five of the most vicious pirates vie to become scourge of the Caribbean:  

Straight from Africa, Moja broke her chains and took revenge against her brutal captors. Now an outlaw, Moja only trusts her valued crew while she wreaks havoc on the Caribbean.  

 Julian's charming whiles will steal your lady as he guts you with his saber. The only thing he is better at stealing than hearts is lives. Julian's name says it all, he's all about the doubloons.  

Rum's desire to plunder could not be held back, even by death itself. He now wanders the seas collecting fortune and eliminating anyone that stands in his way.  

Known as the toughest pirate of the Caribbean, Blacke does it all. Attacking an undefended port, setting fires to ships and making his enemies walk the plank are all in Blacke's wheelhouse.  

Scarlet's skill is only outpaced by her daring. She became a pirate only for the rush of excitement. When lady luck is on Scarlet's side, she is unbeatable.

Push your luck by rolling the dice. With each roll, you risk getting Scurvy, but you may keep rolling until you get what you need:

The dice results interface with other players as much as the world. This means with every turn you are rolling to get the combos that help you and hurt your opponents as much as possible. 




Almost every turn you will be interacting with other players.

Here's a quick example of a turn in a 2 player game:

Risks and challenges

Other than the Stretch goal art and pieces, the game is completely done and setup. It is ready for production now. This game is beneath the scope of our already published board games, based on production complexity.

Every campaign has delivered product, and we are getting faster and more accurate with each one we run,

You hard earned money is safe in our hands. We won't let you down.

Note: The Raiders of Legend only covers making new Custom ships for the original 5 Pirate Captains. We are considering a stretch goal to include another 20 customs ships for the Pirates of Legend Stretch Goal at $50K.
