Trust me, it's fun for the family. And of course, everyone can talk like a pirate.
The premise of the game is to capture merchant ships by attacking them with pirate ships. Both types of ships have varying card values, plus there are some trump cards. The strategy is determining which ships to go after and how much you want to fight for them.
This is a great card game at a reasonable price. The card design is very cartoonish, which is great for younger players. My only complaint is that the colors used to distinguish the 4 sets of pirates should have been more contrasting. The purple, navy, and dark green look awfully similar.
I love games that have simple rules but extensive strategy with a hint of random for fun. This game fits does all three. The game has fun aspects that a whole family with kids can enjoy.
The rules of loot are simple. Players take turns either drawing a card from the deck, or by playing either a merchant or one of four colored pirate ships from their hand. Each merchant or pirate ship has a set attack strength (Pirates) or value (Merchant). If a merchant ship is placed in the playing field all of the other players have a opportunity to attack a merchant ship with a pirate or to place their own merchant ship. If a player attacks a merchant ship with a pirate, then no other player playing after can attack with a pirate of the same color. The player who attacks the merchant with the most amount of pirate points, and no one else has attacked in 1 round wins the merchant ship (and the gold value).
The rules are simple enough that our 6 year old can play and enjoy the game.
When all of the cards are gone and one player can no longer play (ran out of cards) then the points of the merchants that each player has collected are tallied. The individual with the most merchant points wins.
The strategy of the game comes in knowing when to play each card type. After a merchant is payed should you play another merchant? (merchants that remain un attacked for one round go to the original player) Do you play a high point pirate (there are limited high point cards) or do you build your deck? Running out of cards in this game can be detrimental so working on when to hold em and when to fold em is crucial.
This game gets its random aspects from the card shuffling.Read more ›
