It is learned in about 2 minutes and plays in about 15.
For the kids it teaches matching, some strategy about when to stop, ratio of chance with of how many cards are left vs how many of the 8 pirates are left, counting up how many matches/total point cards/and overall score with who is winning.
Only knock it they are paper cards that can get beat up by little hands but so far so good.
For the price you can't beat it. AAARGH you gonna buy it?
Certain cards are treasure cards, like gems or chalices or other pirate booty. Others are treasure chests. These are put face up in front of the player until scoring happens. Still other cards let players "Score some loot!" by taking all of one type of card from one other player (all the keys from Jacob, for example). The set of cards is the pirates. If a player draws a pirate card, they have to stop drawing and the next person gets their turn.
A player can decide to stop drawing before a pirate card shows up and then gets to score the treasures collected. Treasure chests are worth three points each. Other treasures require at least three cards in order to score points. Points are given for the number of cards of each type. Any sets of card that have fewer than three don't score and are left in front of the player. So if Jacob has drawn three chalices, four gems, two keys, and a treasure chest, he score three points for chalices, four for gems, three for one treasure chest, for a total of ten points. The two keys stay in front of him and could be stolen by other players if they draw the "Score some loot!" card. Play continues to a certain number of points depending on the number of players. In a two-player game, once one person hits fifty points, the other player has one last turn to try and beat that score.
The game is fun and fits the pirate theme nicely. It plays from two to six players and the games are pretty short, about ten to fifteen minutes.Read more ›

The scoring was to difficult for grandkids 6 and 7,so we made up our own way to win. Otherwise they liked the game.Published on July 17, 2013 by Jean Bant
