Description Edit | History

Pirates, merchants, and even the occasional captain of a Navy ship all seek glory and fortune on the Caribbean seas!

In the easy-to-play, tactical card-driven board game Black Fleet, you're in command of three different types of ships: your merchant ship earns you doubloons by conveying goods from one port to another, your pirate ship by attacking and stealing goods from merchants and burying them on islands, and the Navy ships by sinking your opponents' pirate ships. With your (not-always-honestly-won) money, you'll improve your ships by buying advancement cards, giving you powerful additional abilities.

Outwit your opponents with fortune cards and combos, earn money faster than they do, and pay the ransom for the governor's daughter to win the game!

2 Correction to game imbalance.
This card corrects problem with weakest player not able to catch back up. Treasure Chest Card The player that has the least number of Victory Cards purchased automatically gets the card. Player may use two movement cards, one after the other if they pay with two FORTUNE cards. Ships still only get one action, but it you move both navy ships they can each take an action. After the turn is completed the player must purchase a victory card if they have enough doubloons. The card is then re-evaluated and goes or stays with the player with the least victory cards.
