I'm going to give this to my newphew for his 5th birthday. I tried iit out with my Mom and realized that he is just to young for this Christmas. The Black Pirate is an interesting little game. The board is beautiful and if I had a child that liked the game I would consider mounting it on a wall such that it could be taken down for play. Depending on the children I could leave out the boarding rules but it does add to the play. Do I avoid that island since the Black Pirate is near? Do I go for that island with the Black Pirate or will I only make it quite close for the next person who happens to get control of the pirate ship. Though dexterity is most important and there is luck ... stategy still has an important role in this game. I say don't buy it since I am giving it as a gift.

My five year old now suggests nothing but...she's good at it too, though she doesn't particularly like the pirate. Great fun. I was thinking the wind blower could be used in "Pirates of the Spanish Main". Could make it a bit more exciting.

Beautifully simple mechanics, yet incredibly awesome amount of fun. I wish it played more than 4, but other than that, this is a winner.

Blowing pirates around a board stealing treasure all with a kid's snot sucker. Just amazing. The only downside to the game is that the board at times creates some ridges that creates a lot of frustration with an already frustrating (at times) ship movement. Sometimes you think you got it all lined up, squeeze, and the ship just shakes. Bah! Exciting fun though.

Classic Haba. Wonderful parts and great gameplay for kids and adults alike. However, the bellows are hard to use for little hands - kids need to be at least 5 and preferably older to use them, which is a pity because the theme is appealing to a much younger age.

As children's games go, this one has a lot of game!
Direct screwage and strategy, with a refreshing twist on the dexterity mechanic.

Good for kids, teens, and adults. We actually have had the most fun playing with teens & adults only and not younger kids. It is a loud game - raucous shouts of triumph and agonizing wails of despair arrrh !

I'm not sure if it's really as great as Geistertreppe, but it gets an 8 anyway, just for having amazing components and being a clever design. Lots of fun for all ages here.

A fun dexterity game of blowing your ship with a bellows around islands to collect gold coins. There is also the opportunity to move the black pirate ship and take gold from the other players. Great fun for kids and adults to play together. Got this 27 September 2007 as part of Friendless' combined German games order.

Fun kids dexterity game. Working the bellows isn't super-easy, but a 5 or 6 year old can get good at it with some practice. Crazy things as the ships sail around!

Rating is for playing with kids. Against adults, I'd probably put this at 6.

The kids love it and so do I. We play with the rule that you can turn your boat in what direction you want before you use the bellows.

One of my favorite kids' games. The board is beautiful, and very colorful. The bellows mechanic is great.

My kids and I have a lot of fun shooting the boats around. Until kids are older, they'll probably need some extra squeezes on the bellows to get their ships anywhere. It's hard to control the bellows very well if you're 6 or younger, with very small hands.

Still, the pirate theme is fun, and we all enjoy sailing around for treasure.

I'm not sure the box needed to be this huge though...
