Pirate King - The Game
From the Publisher...
BE A PIRATE......BECOME A KING!
Make your dreams come true and sail the sea as a Captain of your own ship! Pirate King is a new twist on classic game play. A masterpiece of blending classic board game genres into one exciting adventure. As Captain of the ship you will navigate your crew around the Caribbean to capture territories and build defenses while picking up crewmen and cannons for your ship. Along the way on your voyage, there will be great mysterious treasures that help in combat, movement, money, and even curses!
This is a game of economic management, property building, and naval combat. Victory can be achieved through force of arms, economics or a combination of the two. Why pay when you can fight? That’s the pirate way. But only a wise captain knows when the price of fighting is too high. It all depends on what kind of Captain you want to be on your way in becoming the Pirate King. The lives of your crew are in your hands...what is your destiny?

|This plays like a mix of Monopoly and Risk with a pirate theme. That doesn't actually sound that good, but it works very well. The gameplay is familiar enough to include non-gamers and still interesting enough for everyone else to enjoy.
