Pirates of the Spanish Main Card Game
Pirates of the Spanish Main has elements of a lot of other fun games that I think will make it a favorite for a wide variety of players. Two to four players take on the roles of some of the most salty seadogs to ever sail the Spanish Main, and do everything in their power to increase the fame of each of their captains. At the end of the game the player with the most fame is declared the winner. There’s definitely a strategy aspect as you’re shifting around the ships with movement cards and trying to take advantage of the adventure card that will be put into effect that round. There’s also something of a bluffing game going on as players try to guess which of the players are playing as each of the pirates. If they guess accurately the players claims half of the fame from the pirate’s card giving them a big boost. To avoid losing fame you’ll have to be careful in showing too much favoritism for any one of the pirate. The adventure cards themselves are filled with ghost ships, maelstroms, volcanoes, daring ship to ship battles, and other exciting events to alter the fortunes of the pirate crews. Pirates of the Spanish Main is a great game and it’s easy to learn how to play.
