The original version of the Pirates franchise was based on the construction of tiny little pirate ships and setting up your entire table as the board on which you played. Many of those ships are still setting sail atop my monitor, even as I type! It is truly one of my all time favorites in the world of "dead games".
The new game hit stores in late August/early September, and unfortunately for the Pirates: OTSM franchise, hasn't seemed to make a big splash. The game play is advertised as a secret bid system, where players play cards to help your sponsored captains achieve success without letting everyone know who you are secretly sponsoring. The cards feature artwork from the many releases of the original.
So, has anyone played this? Why didn't you tell me about it? Let us know what you think!
Thanks for reading!
