Avast ye, sailors!
Scurvy Dogs, being our original Big Project at Scallywags International, is something we think about quite often. And in 2013, there's some big Scurvy Dogs news on the horizon.
First, quick housekeeping - we're still having difficulty shipping the water-colored card art from Colombia to the USA. Dern now has about 90% of the water colors, and will start shipping more to the cameo and art backers. Thank you again for being patient with us.
Now, our first big announcement: Scurvy Dogs: Treasure and Treason.
Treasure and Treason is a 54-card expansion for Pirates and Privateers. It features five new Cargo cards and eight new Mission cards, and will be available for pre-order by Monday.
The cargo cards are built to help balance some parts of the game (cannons that bombard a shoreline), while offering some truly wicked twists to other parts of the game (say, that's a nice ship you have there. Be a shame if anything happened to it).
Mission cards will offer a new dynamic to the game, increasing the paranoia and thwarting carefully laid-out plans. We'll look at them more in a bit.
Here's a sneak preview of the five cargo cards:
