Description Edit | History

Pirate King is a game where players take on the roles of pirate captains. Players sail around the Caribbean trying to become the Pirate King by smuggling cargo and capturing territories.

Players set sail by choosing how far they would like to move each turn and roll a d12 to determine how far they will move. Rolling too low or too high will cause a player to overshoot or undershoot his or her target, but a good roll will hit a player right where he or she wants to go. Wherever a player lands on a territory, he or she has choices to make about what actions to take, whether that be to capture the port, pay the owner a dock fee, or attempt to wrest control of the port from the current owner. Players draw cards that have good or bad effects on the Pirate's Booty or Captain's Log spaces, and further spaces have effects on players

Players gain points by holding territories, having Great Treasures, or by defeating the Commodore. The game is over when a player has 16 points.

0 Money Denomination Player Aid
I'm not sure about others, but I found the colors/denominations of the money to not be very intuitive and confusing. Thus, I made this chart and printed it out on card stock for reference during the game.

3 Western PA Geekfest Pirate King Local Rules
We've only played this a couple times and frankly, it's kind of weak. It has potential though. These are some of the Local Rules that we've been developing to try and improve it. If you use them and have any additional suggestions, feel free to send them along.

6 Flag Template
As inspired and requested by Ken (LFITQ) and thanks to help from Erik (unixrevolution), here is the "do it yourself" template for real pirate flags for use with Pirate King. Print on label paper, cut them out and affix them to the flags. There are 4 sets of each type of pirate flag for each color of flag in the game.
