About the Game
Whats In the Box?
Along with the Rules in English, High Seas Pirates has nearly 90 Cards and over 250 Tokens. The Cards and Boards are all custom drawn by our artist, Justin Wyatt. Justin is a Professional Artist who has illustrated many books and this is his second Game.
Each Player is a Pirate, aiming to Bury Treasure on their Island. To do this, you choose an Action secretly each turn, and starting with the Fastest Pirate Reveal your action. Depending on your action other pirates may help you or hinder you, and you may find yourself attacked especially if your ship is laden down with treasure
On Your Ship you have a number of tokens that represent Crew, Sails, Cannon, Your Captain, and Treasure. Sails make you faster, cannons make you stronger. Crew can act as Sails or Cannons, alternatively they can be used to board other ships on the seas. Treasure is what the game is all about. The first player to 10 Treasure buried on their Island Wins
There are 6 Actions in High Seas Pirates. Through playing these actions each pirate is trying to steal the most treasure, protect their ship, attack others, and hopefully bury their treasure on their island before other pirates can steal it from them.
The High Seas Deck
The High Seas Deck consists of a number of cards, some Events, some ships.
Ships can be attacked, and their treasure taken. They can then be sailed to port and sold as a prize for extra treasure. Any ship not attacked stays on the High Seas for other Pirates to attack, and as this is open water others may help for a share of the treasure.
Going First is Important, and the Fastest Ship each turn (with the most sails) Receives the first Player marker , and gets to perform their action first, but also has to choose their action first the next round. Going First is important, but not always a good thing.
The tactical play in High Seas Pirates makes it fun for all ages, and the game plays fantastically well for just two people as well as the maximum of six.
