About this project

Please excuse the unprofessional video.  Making and editing videos is not my area of expertise (and I'm sure it shows).  

I have uploaded some info about how the game is played on Youtube.

Here:

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 1 Die "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 "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 funest game I have ever played.  I have been working on this game for over 6 months.  We have game day every Saturday with a group of people and everyone loves this game.  We play it several times every Saturday.

The plan is to print out at least 5,000 copies of the game. Each copy will include 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 8 players.  Ages 8 and up.

This is a high quality game.  The game 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.  No cheap folding game tuck box.

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 finishing the artwork and printing/manufacturing the game. 

Below are a few (still in the works) images of cards.

Here is an almost complete card, still have to add a little to it.
