Description Edit | History

The idea of the game is to collect treasure to a total value of 20 points. A player may obtain treasure by three methods:
1) Sailing to Treasure Island and turning up Chance cards.
2) Sailing to other ports and trading.
3) By attacking other ships at sea.

A notable feature of this game are the very nice treasure pieces. The diamonds, rubies and pearls look like small jewels. The way cards work for ship movement and combat is a very clever mechanic, years ahead of its time.

Remade by Hasbro as Pirates Of The Caribbean Buccaneer

Earlier editions have 6 ships, later ones have 4 ships. The board represents the sea with home ports. A tray placed in the middle of the board represents a treasure island, and holds diamonds, rubies, pearls, bars of gold, and barrels of rum. Opponents' ships can be attacked and treasure or crew captured.

Also: remade as Trade Winds in the USA.
