Description Edit | History

Adventure and glory await you in Pieces of Eight, the rousing combat game of rival buccaneer ships on the high seas. You play the game with a stack of metal pirate coins held in one hand that represents your ship. The coins you choose and the order in which you place them determine your ship's strengths, and you use the special abilities of your coins to destroy your opponent's coins one by one. Your goal is to expose the Captain coin buried deep in the middle of your adversary's ship, then take him out!

Dare to enter the age of blood and gold with either The Blade or The Maiden's Vengeance ship set. Each set includes all the coins needed for one player to construct his own ship. Your opponents will each need their own ship set to play, but there's no other limit to the number of players who can join in. The coins in each set are not randomized; you can combine ship sets to gain a wider selection of coins and the advantage over your foes.

4 Pieces of Eight CARDS
Cards are MUCH easier to use than the coins sometimes, depending on where you are. Print the cards on cardstock, cut them out with a heavy duty paper cutter, sleeve them in Deck Protector sleeves (Captain a different color of course) and there you have it! You may need to have a few copies of the same sheet to get all the cards you want/need.
