Pirate Attack! is an action packed card game. The main game includes 350 cards. There are 6 expansion packs ranging from 50 to 100 cards each. Each expansion pack adds a new level of play to the game.
In the Main Game "Pirate Attack- The Beginning", players play ships, fight battles and steal gold. Players use cards to improve their ships and harm other players ships. Players can buy Witch Doctor cards to place on other players to hurt them and Fortune Teller cards to help themselves.
The first expansion pack of 50 cards "Pirate Attack- The Magic Shop" adds a Magic Shop full of things to help your ships and hurt your enemies.
The second expansion pack of 50 cards "Pirate Attack- Raise The Dead" adds more Ships, more main deck cards and more Magic Cards.
The third expansion pack of 50 cards "Pirate Attack- Miss-Direction" adds more Ships, more Magic Cards, more Sea Creatures and Wind Storms.
The forth expansion pack of 100 cards and 2 Dice "Pirate Attack- Walk The Plank" adds another Ship, more Magic Cards and many new play cards that create all new things to happen during the game.
The fifth expansion pack of 100 cards and 1 Chip "Pirate Attack- The Tavern" adds a whole new market. The Tavern is a place where you can bribe a drunk sailor into telling you secrets and info, some good, some bad.
The sixth (and final) expansion pack of 50 cards and 2 dice "Pirate Attack- Special Abilities" gives players (who chose to) a Special Ability, but only if they are willing to Sell Their Soul to get it.
This is the most fun game I have ever played. We have game day every Saturday with a group of people and play it several times because everyone loves it.
The plan is to print out at least 5,000 copies of the main game and each expansion pack (a total of 750 cards, 350 in the main game and 400 in the 6 expansion packs). The main game can be played as a stand alone and expansion packs can be added to give the players more things to do during the game. Best when played with 3 to 10 players. Ages 8 and up.
This is a high quality game. It comes in a nice, sturdy 9" x 12" x 3" game box with inserts to hold all the cards from the main game and each expansion pack, so all the cards are together.
The game has great replay ability. Not the same old game every time. Certain cards make things different every game. You can even remove cards to give the game a different play. Play with or without expansion packs.
Retail Price for the game will be:
Main Game- $50
Expansion 1- $15
Expansion 2- $15
Expansion 3- $15
Expansion 4- $20
Expansion 5- $20
Expansion 6- $15
The money from Kickstarter will go directly towards printing/manufacturing the game.
Below are a few images of cards.
The basic strategy of Pirate Attack is to build up your ships while sinking your opponent's ships. Meanwhile other players are trying to do the same thing to you.
After sending your ship to sea, you can build it up by adding a Blacksmith who will increase your cannons and Carpenters who will increase your strength. Draw an Attack Card and then destroy an opponent's ship (if you can). When a ship is sunk, receive gold which can be spent at The Market on Witch Doctor Cards so you can curse your opponent's ships. Buy some Fortune Teller Cards to protect yourself from others placing Witch Doctor Cards on your ships.
Summon a Sea Creature to attack other player's ships. Force two other players to attack each other. Anything you can do to destroy your enemies and become the ruler of the seas.
Use a Spy to remove useful cards from other players or a Thieving Monkey to take a card from an opponent and keep it. Better keep a good watch on your gold with a Guard or someone may try to steal it with a Thief.
Lower the prices at the Market so you can buy more items or close the Market so your opponents cannot buy items to hurt you with.
Once you have several ships at your command, use the Armada Card to join them all together and fight as one to destroy your enemies.
Force your opponents to Walk The Plank or strand them on an island so they lose a turn.
The play is simple. Draw 1 card, play 1 card (some cards can alter this). Play a ship, increase your ship, decrease another players ship, open/ close a market, steal cards or if you draw an attack card then attack a player with your ship. Receive gold and buy items to make you stronger or hurt your opponents.
Each expansion pack adds more things you can do and more markets to buy from to help you on your quest to rule the seas.
