Description Edit | History

Game description from the publisher:

Captain Swallow has always dreamed of pocketing a large nest egg in order to retire on a remote island – but he never counted on stiff competition from Captains Stanley Rackum, Dirk Chivers and others, greedy and cruel enemies who always manage to attack the same ships as him. If he wants to finally sink back and enjoy peaceful days in the sun, he must become the most cunning pirate!

In Libertalia, you must thwart the plans of competitive pirates over the course of three rounds while using cards that show the same crew members as your piratical comrades-in-arms. Yes, not only do they attack the same ships, but they employ the same type of ravenous scum that you do! Can you take advantage of the powers of your characters at the right time? Will you be outdone by a pirate smarter than you? Jump into the water and prove your tactical skills!

13 Bill's Libertalia Tie-Breaker Solution
Finally solved Libertalia tie-breaker problem! This Excel file will generate 6 decks worth of random tie-breaking numbers with a single keystroke. The decks are equally balanced, and the relation between decks is randomly changed each time. The file generates colored strips. Each strip includes all 30 card numbers, character names, and tie-breaker numbers. Print a page, cut the strips apart, pass them out and you're ready to go. Every game different! File also generates balanced tie-breaker strips for 2-p and 3-p games. I've also included .pdf files of strips for 10 games each of 4-6p, 3p and 2p. But I encourage you to generate your own strips with the Excel program so that every game will be different. It's easy and requires no special Excel or computer knowledge. A full description of...

3 Regex' Horizontal Tuckboxes for Sleeved Libertalia Cards
This is a box set with a special horizontal design suitable for sleeved cards that would help you store your sleeved cards (standard Mayday thickness). The boxes also feature a nice graphics design with the faction flag on each box. Make sure you do not print from the browser preview and you disable fit to page - the file uses A4 file size.
