New Update with tons of info about the games!

All of these games are casual and built with pirates in mind. Whether you be a rum-guzzling swashbuckler, or a scheming rapscallion, we have a game that's just right for you!

Even Fresh Fish (new pirate lads and lasses) can enjoy some pirate gaming. If yer old enough to swab the deck, yer old enough to Escape the Plank!

Our Leather Pouch games typically take about 30 minutes to play. Pillage/Burn is the quickest - taking ~15 minutes, and Sea Stories tops out the chart as telling tall tales can fill an entire evening.

BOARD AT SEA: A 2-player imperfect-information strategy game all about raiding a merchant ship.

There be nothin’ a Pirate loves more than pillaging a plunder-full Merchant boat! But THESE merchants aren't an easy pushover! They have extra plunder, but would rather force the Pirates to sink it than relinquish it to their dirty, thieving hands! 

See the video here!

CAY CONTROL:  A 2-player luck-influenced strategy game featuring multi-stage captures.

Ah, this be your favorite place: Pirate Cay! Small islands filled to the brim with your Illicit Loot! But what’s this? ANOTHER pirate, moving in on your Cays! Oh, this can not be tolerated! You'll need tactics and fate to sweep these seas clean! 

See the video here!

DIVIDE THE BOOTYA 2-4 player trading game where honesty is highly discouraged.

It’s been another fantastic pirate day! You successfully pillaged heaps of loot from all across the sea! Now, you and your cohorts find yourself sitting around a pile of booty, trading for the best set of treasure. 

See the video here!

ESCAPE THE PLANK: A 2-6 player race game in which you get to move the other players' pieces too.

The Captain’s convinced that you and your crew mates are planning a mutiny. The constant paranoia has driven him crazy! He’s forcing everyone to walk the plank, and you’ll be next if you can’t make it to the row boat! Run and jump your way to safety, while pushing everyone else into the drink! 

See the video here!

PILLAGE/BURN: A 2-8 player bluffing game all about getting paid for tricking your friends.

You and your fellow cohorts are in a Pirate Flotilla, scouring the seas for Merchant ships to pillage and Navy ships to burn! When you scout you only get paid when you deceive your cohorts, but sometimes the truth is the last thing they'll expect! 

See the video here!

SEA STORIES: A 2-4 player storytelling game featuring all the best elements of pirate life.

Shiver me timbers; ye’ve escaped Davey Jones’ Lockup again! Now it’s time to go to the pub to tell yer tale to all your  Pirate mateys! Just don’t get too excited reliving your tale! If you forget to connect all of your elements, ye mateys will call ye out for being a hornswaggling landlubber! 

See the video here!

THE BLOCKADE: A 2-player unequal-forces strategy game that uses flanking captures and adjustable difficulty levels.

It’s a classic showdown between the Navy Fleet and the Pirate Flotilla! The Navy ships have set up a blockade across the sea, separating the Pirate ships from their hideout! Sneaking past a navy is no easy task! Even with the wind on your side, you may need to sacrifice a ship to escape with the booty! 

See the video here!

We just couldn't make games about Pirates without making treasures to accompany them! These accessories complement the games and add a beautiful flair to your adventures!

While we offer some treasures here, ye best remember that these be trinkets, not the loot you can retire on!

This update has even more details!

BAG O' BOOTY: The Bag O' Booty is a leather mini-pouch, stuffed to the gills with 30 metal pirate coins that look, sound, and feel just like the real thing!

PRECIOUS PLUNDER: This small bottle is packed with a random assortment of REAL precious and semi-precious gemstones, pearls and pyrite! No pirate's life can be complete without real treasure! This bit of lovely comes inside a small, black velveteen treasure chest!  ***International import and export laws regarding precious stones limits this item to USA shipping ONLY.***

MINI GAMES SET: This set includes 2 mini leather pouch games: "Ship, Captain, Crew," and "Shut the Box." These historically accurate dice games just might have been played by actual pirates during the Golden Age of Piracy!

GAME PIECES SET: The game pieces set includes 100 pieces in a velveteen pouch! There's enough real marble and wood dice to play any of the games or replace any pieces that get lost over the years.

PENDANT: This black pirate charm is real agate that's L.A.S.E.R. etched featuring the theme: "Me Love, and Me Life" (the Jolly Roger on one side, and your Pirate ship on the other!). Comes with a 24" necklace, inside a small, black velveteen treasure chest!

Be there a pirate in the world who doesn't crave a chest to store their loot? We don't think so either, so we be making some!

The Captain's Chest and Crew's Chest are limited edition boxes available through the reward tiers that say "CHEST" (4+ CREW'S CHEST / 7+ CAPTAIN'S CHEST / 12+ CHESTS). Chests are not Games or Bibelots. They're Chests! *smiles*

The Crew's Chest features L.A.S.E.R. etched, ocean-blue leather, proudly displaying The Piratical Collection Logo on the top, and the limited edition number on the front. It measures about 8" x 5" x 4.5".

The Captain's Chest is just like the Crew's Chest - but bigger! Because Captain's have more stuff! It measures about 9.5" x 6.5" x 5.5".

Both Chests have a slightly distressed look from their years at sea, and feature decorative lacing and metal filigree accents.

This handy update goes over the entire creation process of these lovely Chests!

Shiver me Timbers! Look a' what we've done, me hearties! With so many Pirates jumping on board, it only seems right for us to have some wicked things to give you: FOR FREE! *bounce bounce*

UNLOCKED: Eye-patches for Everyone!

 $10,000 Achievement: Pirate Maps!

 $15,000 Achievement: Chest Implants!

Risks and challenges

We've had 3 successful Kickstarter projects in the past, each of which have presented us with their own unique set of challenges and obstacles to overcome. We are thankful for these learning experiences, and are ready to face the adventures a new project promises to bring us.

We are using a few new suppliers for this project, which means that we might experience delays, inconsistent quality, or even completely buy our suppliers out of materials. All of these are easily bested with a pinch of patience and consistent communication - with you and our suppliers. We'll post weekly updates throughout the production process to keep you in the loop. If delays do happen, you'll know long before we miss a deadline!

The other big risk involves our L.A.S.E.R. We bought her used, and run her pretty hard. So far, she's done remarkably well, but we can expect to encounter a few mechanical issues if our production schedule is lengthy. Most repairs are simple and inexpensive (covered by the best warranty known to man). We also have access to an amazing Tech Support staff, as well a a team of engineers who love nothing more than digging into a L.A.S.E.R.'s insides. Serious mechanical issues could result in delays, but we fully anticipate being able to cover any and all repair costs.

And, of course, if the Zombie outbreak finally happens, all shipping services will probably shut down, preventing us from mailing packages. If this happens, you may need to journey to Bibelot Land to pick up your games in person. *smiles* Yay!

We do expect this project to bring us new experiences, which we promise to face with our usual good cheer and dedication to communication!
