Board Game Capital's Review:
Review Completed (2019-12-11) Pirates GameWe recently reviewed a game very similar to this one (Snowball Fight) so many of the below comments are the same with some slight variations. First impression when we saw this game – awesome! First impression when receiving and opening the game – awesome! First impression after playing once – awesome! We loved it but there are a few things to understand.

There are three ways to play the game. The first is a very simple and basic game built primarily on luck (3-7 players). Well, actually, completely on luck unless you build a secret alliance with another player to ambush someone. This variant of the game is great for young players.

The second variant, Pirate Fleet, is intended for two players. Slightly different game play rules apply as you now have to keep track of ships and different damage levels. We had to refer frequently to the rules to make sure we were keeping the counts correct. Some kind of cheat card would have been nice.

The last variant, Man-O-War, is a mix between the Pirate Fleet where everyone is against one player and that one player is against everyone else. Different hit rules apply depending on who you are playing as. It’s nice to be able to play different ways so we really liked these variants.

Snowball Fight CardsGraphics on the cards are very well drawn. Love, love, love the theme of these cards. We noticed there is a subtle hint on the cards as to which heals what by the color of the plus sign. Cards are built well and are nicely stored in a sturdy game box.

The game rules are clear though a little wordy. We would have liked to see more graphics in them but they get the game across nicely (although we still aren’t quite sure on how to play the Pirate Fleet correctly). Learning how to play is so simple that when explained by someone it only takes 20 seconds as opposed to reading them for 2 minutes.

Pirates is a wonderful family card game that plays quick and involves a lot of people. This should be in everyone’s collection if you like a game you don’t have to think too hard about. Fun and casual with some slight (and real) card throwing as you hurl bombs at each other.
