When deciding on our playmats, the major factors we considered were portability, durability and quality. This led us to use 210gsm polyester microfibre. A silky-smooth foldable material that looks great when printed and stands up to wear and tear. They are so compact that a single playmat will fold up smaller than a card and a set of 4 take up less space than a standard card deck.
Mythical Beasts and the Poopie Hand expansion pack
Created for more mature players (16+) with advanced action cards and fun filled, poop humour. As if the Salty Dogs don't have their paws full enough, with Cannon Blasts, the Kraken and Scurvy (amongst other things!) the all knowing god Poopallotus has stricken the crews with more terror by way of this Salty Dogs Poopie expansion pack. Use the Butt Probe to rummage for new cards, avoid the Stink Palm, run from the Turdalwave and whatever you do, DON'T drink the water! Fear not ye land lubbers for there be some good news, your crew have been gifted some fine mythical beasts to help along the way, including Dragons and Humans (whatever they are!). All this, plus brand new Cure and Defence cards, such as Poseidon’s Kiss and the incredibly useful Tiny Umbrella!
Good luck and may the power of 1700's soap save you!
Requires Salty Dogs base game to play.

Risks and challenges
The game is now complete, the designs, the rules, the stretch goal plans, everything!
Our background is in the book/comic book industry, this is our first venture into the game world. It has more components involved and we are striving for the highest quality possible. We are keen gamers and went on a steep learning curve to deliver what we believe is a great product.
We expect everything to go according to our well-oiled plan but there are contingency plans in place, should there be any hiccups. The game is being produced by a highly proven reputable game company (gamelandcn). Despite our confidence in this company, we have alternative printers at the ready, should there be any issues.
With production not in-house, there is a possibility of some extended shipping time or customs delays, we have done our very best to alleviate all of the issues but realise that unforeseen things can happen.
We have added buffer time to our delivery date so with any luck we will have the games out and delivered early!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
