By Daniel Lewis on November 16, 2012
It's another Monday for a working buccaneer. Looks like slim pickings on the ship: a Spanish officer out for blood, a few barrels of beer, and some cursed masks. You send in your Barkeep. He won't get first pick of the loot, but he'll be free to open up the tavern tonight and give you a cut. There's always tomorrow, and you have to make the tough calls if you want to found a pirate's paradise: Libertalia...

In Libertalia, two to six players scheme to earn the most doubloons. Players have pirate crews represented by cards, and for 3 weeks, 6 days a week, choose pirates to send out to collect booty. Each player picks from the same crew members, but tends to play differently. Booty is revealed a week at a time, so planning ahead is key to success.

Pirates are played face down, then revealed together and put on the day's pirate ship in rank order. Each pirate has a unique ability and rank. For instance, the Beggar is of rank 3 (out of 30) and takes 3 doubloons from the highest-rank pirate played that day. Pirates of low rank execute their abilities earlier, while pirates of high rank are last to act, but first to collect treasure. Pirates, and thus players, often interact with each other. Expect shocking reveals, triumphs of foresight, and furious recalculations when things go wrong.

This is a very solid, tight design. It's highly interactive and balanced, so outwitting your opponents is key. The rules are easy to pick up, and doubloons focus the game sharply. The pirate theme is light, but well-done.

Playtime is roughly an hour. All players think and play in parallel, so adding a player doesn't slow things down.

Replayability is immense.

Libertalia is overall a great game, great experience and great product. Just want to share some details that are good to know before purchasing so you're more familiar with the game:

Build Quality

I love the quality construction. The board, the tokens and the cards all are well made. The colors are vivid, the cardboard is thick and well cut, and the cards have a great feel to them.

Artwork

There's some great art on the cards and tokens. The board itself is well done, but a little empty feeling. Part of this is that there's not a lot of interaction with the board, its more akin to a mat for CCGs, with outlines for where to place the cards and tokens. That's one thing to keep in mind, this is definitely a card focused game. Not a negative, its just closer to a game like Dominion, where you barely need a board.

Gameplay

This is the where I was a little disappointed, only because of my expectations. The gameplay is super fun, but not incredibly deep. First of all, everyone starts out with the exact same cards, which makes up your "crew". One player selects 9 cards out of the deck, and the other players draw the exact same ones. There are three rounds, each new round you carry over 3 cards, so variation between player's hands can come from which cards you don't play in the previous round, but I thought there'd be more of a chance to customize your crew. Each "pirate" you play as (represented as a large token) differs only in color and name. Once again, I had imagined there might be different perks or variation between them.

On the other hand I understand the need to create homogeneity, because it puts focus on the strategy each player comes up with, which ends up being all kinds of fun.

I really enjoyed this game. I wanted a fun casual game and this one was perfect. It has nearly no setup, and the rules are easy to learn. One playthrough is more than enough to get the mechanics down. There were a few times I looked online to get clarification. (Yes the Brute can kill himself. Yes dusk actions happen before loot distribution.) Every player has the same cards in their hand. This adds a good deal of strategy while taking away the element of chance that would make who wins and loses somewhat random. It's even enjoyable with only 2 players. I have a group that plays tabletop RPG's and sometimes the party gets split up and half the group is sitting twiddling their thumbs for an hour or so. This game only takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the amount of players, so it is perfect for that downtime. Also, it's damn pretty.

Libertalia is a hidden role game where you select a member of your pirate crew to go collect the best treasure from a ship. However, each crew members have different strengths and special abilities that can affect the other players pirates so that you can get first pick of the treasure you want.

Artwork - I think the artwork is fantastic. It is very "Pirates of the Caribbean" feeling and I really like that and think a lot of people can easy get into the theme because it's very accessible. I wouldn't say it's trying to play off the success of the movie however, just using a similar style which I think fits the game.

Components - Nothing too special here. It's mainly a card game where each pirate crew member is a card in your deck. The playing board is a ship and it is nothing special, but fits the game just fine. What's probably the most special part of the components in a nifty velvet bag that you keep the treasure in for drawing randomly to see what plunder a ship will have. No miniatures, but that really wouldn't fit this game at all. Box is also really nice. After several play through nothing is really showing much wear and tear, but I'm careful to tell people not to aggressive shuffle their cards. I can see "that guy" who bends his cards when he holds them damaging these just like a normal playing deck.

Game Play - It's actually a very simple game when it comes down to it. The base of the game is that everybody has the same 30 pirate crew members in their deck. One player randomly draws crew members from the deck (7) and all other then collect those same 7 cards from their decks as well.
