Product Description

Trade vessels sail through the Straits of Malacca. Every vessel holds cargo, which is a temptation for potential attackers (i.e., pirates). At the same time, a fortune can be made by peacefully trading with these vessels – as long as they are not looted by others. The players are ship captains – famous captains of history such as Henry Morgan, Pierre Le Picard, and Sayyida al Hurra – who can trade with these vessels, attack them, or defend them from attacking players; what's more, the Governor of Malacca offers special privileges for those who choose to defend the vessels against pirates. The money you earn can be spent on new powerful equipment available on the local market.

Malacca is a fast-paced card game based on estimating other players' strategy and choosing the right play and wager. You can best your opponents by estimating their strategy and utilizing it for your own purposes. Whoever acquires the biggest treasure after twelve rounds wins!
