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?

I'm not much of a gamer myself, but I got Pirate King for my nephews. I found out a week later that they haven't stopped playing for a minute. I played with them the other day, and even I had a great time. Lots of different ideas in one..... way better than the board games I grew up with. I took a shot in the dark, banking on the Pirate craze, and it really paid off. Thanks for making me look good. I hope you make some more games like this soon.
It's about time a cool board game came out. It's been a long time coming. This game is like a cross between Risk and Monopoly, with some great twists. I played this with my two cousins (age 14 and 16) and they loved it. This is a game you can play in stages and use strategies to build up your cannon power and collect treasures just like a real pirate. After recently watching the Pirates of the Car. movie, I had the itch to give the pirate deal a try myself and this game ended up being the perfect thing. It's very different everytime you play it so it's a game like Risk where you can try different options out and have a very different destiny every single time. I highly recommend it to anyone that has an itch for adventure into the pirate world.
