All the gold in the world.

It's not too much to ask for, is it?

Sure, there might be a few other scoundrels on the high seas with the same goal, but they've never had to deal with the likes of you. You're a crafty one.

Bury your coin to keep it safe while you scout foreign islands and plunder their treasures. Be wise though, all good pirates know the value of a booby trap. Only your cunning and deductive powers can help you safely chart a map to the riches.

Oh, and never forget he who all buccaneers fear most...

The deadly Krakken and its many arms wait to drag you and all that glitters to the depths of the ocean.

How To Play:

  • Players begin at one of four home islands
  • Each turn players may move their ship 15 paces
