Your objective is to sail the islands off Pirate's Cove and become the most famed pirate the world has ever seen (well, this year, at least)!
To do so, you will in turn need to navigate shrewdly, fight recklessly and plunder mercilessly. You will gain fame by winning fights, burying gold and treasure, and bragging about your exploits at the Tavern. At the end of twelve months (game turns), the pirate with the most fame will be declared winner of the game and most fearsome Pirate of the High Seas!
The islands around Pirate's Cove hide countless riches... Once captured, each brings you various spoils during the Plunder and Upgrade phases.
