Description Edit | History

Ethereal pirates swarm back and forth over each other's ships as the seas toss in the midnight storm. The decks of each vessel shift in and out of reality as the fighting begins. One captain and crew will emerge triumphant, and the loser will be damned to stalk the bowels of Davy Jones' locker.

Ghost Pirates is a tactical board game in which two ghost pirate Captains encounter each other on the high seas; based on old rivalries, grudges, or whatever it was that happened on Skull Island, they each turn broadside and lay-to. Each crew, following captain's orders, fights, fires cannons, and swarms their enemy's deck, attempting to force the other captain to walk the plank. Each player's turn consists of drawing a card, playing one or more cards to strengthen their ship and tactical position, moving your pirate crew, and finally, having them fight the foeman or take advantage and pillage the enemy’s ship. The goal of the game is to force your opponent’s captain to walk the plank.

Gameplay is designed to emulate tactical melee battles with a unique dice mechanic that is easy to learn and quick to play, especially for beginning gamers. It bears certain similarities to wargames like Axis and Allies, but on a much smaller, more fast-paced scale. The components are 72 cards which build the play layout and form the draw deck, 34 crew tokens, and a small handful of pirate themed six-sided dice.

Ghost Pirates was named to the 2013 GAMES 100 list, nominated for Best Family Game.

0 M's Ghost Pirates -Captain & Treasure tuckbox for sleeved cards
This is a tuckbox for sleeved Captain & Treasure cards for Ghost Pirates. The Ship part cards and tokens will fit into the other tuckbox I've designed. Print out onto thick card stock, cut out, and glue/tape it together to form a tuckbox that accommodates sleeved cards. If you wish to use it for non-sleeved cards, you can probably shrink the printing size to 97%, please try it and comment if it works. I'm still pretty new at making tuckboxes, so comments welcome. Please enjoy :)

0 M's Ghost Pirates - Ship & Token tuckbox
This is a tuckbox for the Ship Parts & Tokens. Once you add additional dice, or the Promos to the game, they won't fit into the original box any more. So I made some tuckboxes. I'm still a new hand at making tuckboxes, so feedback welcome :) Print this out onto Thicker cardstock, and cutout and glue together. This will fit the ship cards & the Forecastle, Main Mast, Poop Decks for both players, & the red & blue tokens. This will also accommodate sleeved cards. The Captain & Treasure cards will fit in the other tuckbox.

0 M's Ghost Pirates Card backing
I prefer different backings for my cards to easily tell them apart and sort them. So I made 3 types of backings for when you sleeve these cards. (The card thickness and quality is good enough you don't need to sleeve them, BUT if you are using the promos you'll need to sleeve them as the backing is different). There's a backing image for pg 1. the ship parts & treasures pg 2. treasures (this is only for those that wish to easily tell their treasures from the other cards) pg 3. the ship captains Print this on A4 paper, cut them out, and when you sleeve the cards, put them into the sleeves. Once sleeved the cards will not fit into the original box, so print out the tuckboxes I've uploaded.
