About

Pirates are always thieving and plundering! They are constantly on the search for treasure. Sometimes they gain it by deception and stealth, and other times they just get lucky!

Being a Pirate has it’s risks, to be sure. They could get caught and land themselves in jail, or drink too much rum and miss out on their shot at more gold! 

Boot Loot is a strategic dice game in the world of Pirates! You will need 2 or more pirates to start your treachery. Thieve, plunder, and deceive your way into gaining your 12 gold coins!

Simple and easy enough, it only has a few components:

1 Shaker Cup, 9 Voyage Dice, 1 Action Dice
1 Shaker Cup, 9 Voyage Dice, 1 Action Dice

You have 9 eight sided dice.

Each dice has three symbols:

WARNING! Not all dice are the same!!
WARNING! Not all dice are the same!!

You have 1 six sided Action Dice.

This dice has six symbols:

To start the game:

Shake the cup and (without looking!) take out three voyage dice and roll.

Now you have 3 options:

Roll Again - Pick 3 NEW voyage dice from the cup and roll again.

Roll the Action Dice - Carry out the action for the symbol it lands on.

End Your Turn - Total your coins and add to your overall score.

ZERO is the lowest possible score.

Be the first pirate to 12 coins!!

Once a pirate has 12 coins, play continues to complete the round. This last round is important.  It gives all the other Pirates a chance to gain more loot or take a few off of the winning Pirate and essentially steal that Pirate's win.

So BEWARE, your booty can be stolen from you!

If all pirates have less then 12 coins after this round, the play continues.

My wife and I have been tackling our school loans since we started down our own career paths. We created this game to try and get rid of some of that debt.  We both get an enjoyable experience from this!  You get an awesome cool new game and we hopefully drop our debt down significantly!

We work hard and have very little free time, but we decided that this game idea was too cool to pass up, so every free moment we’ve had has been dedicated to creating this game. After a few prototypes and countless revisions of the rules, we have our game.

We wanted to create something entertaining to help us eliminate something unpleasant (our student loans). Having no prior knowledge or experience in making games, we have really pushed ourselves to come up with a fun and easy game that everyone can play.

We really hope you enjoy our game and please support our Kickstarter!

We can't wait for you to play!

Risks and challenges

Our design is finalized, we have a working prototype, all our work is copyrighted and we have manufacturers and shipping companies on hold. The only thing really holding us back is our initial start up costs. That’s where you come in.

Since our game is so small and compact, we don’t need too many individual parts. We still fear the challenges ahead that may come with manufacturing and shipping, but we have our plan A, B and C in case something drastic happens, like actual Pirates stealing our game (yikes!). All in all, we feel pretty confident about the next steps in this process.

Basically we are ready if you are. We want you to have fun and we’d love to get rid of some loans! So help us out and back our Kickstarter. We can’t wait for you to start playing, matey!
