This rating (7/10) is my feeling after one single play. The game seems to deserve a better rating but the rules as they are written prevent you to have a fluent first play

First edition of the rules are really unclear but if you can decipher them, you will discover a pretty good game.

Unplayable out of the box but with the help of the errated 2nd ed. rulebook, the FAQ and a couple more clarifications (all of this on bgg) you get a decent game with a nice piratey feel.
The mix of cooperative gameplay, negociation and take that is quite original.
Nice artwork.

This game is really way more chaotic than I normally like my boardgaming, but it comes closest to capturing the spirit of what a pirate boardgame should really be about: cooperating until the critical moment when you backstab each other and take the loot for yourself!

Whatever, seriously whatever...
I wish the gameplay was as nice as the components.

A 'problem child': the components are all very nice -the art of the adventure cards and the ship board, especially- the theme and the universe well done, and the basic idea -that could be resumed as 'a screw your neighbour game with lots of backstabbing, dice, fun but also some real intersting strategic decisions like where to place your pirates (Caylus, Leonardo da Vinci, etc...) and when to play their abilities (Magic) and your cards'- very promising...

Alas, the game sits in between chairs: it is very random for a strategic game, and for a fun backstabbing game, it is a little too demanding; the unclearness of the components doesn't help at all (the powers of the roles on the ship are not all mentioned on the -nice but too small- board, the pirates token are too small also, the abilities and powers on the cards are difficult to read, etc...), and you will probably need some games to get to know all the powers of the pirates.

If you want to invest in a (fun and random) party game the same amount of time and energy that you would give for a heavier strategic game with learning curve, this could be a good choice...

Very cool looking Asmodee production. Only 3-5 though and a long playing time. I have French rules but would prefer some in English.

2007. negotiation and "take that" for 90-120 min... it doesn't sound like my idea of a fun game.

Others say: this game generates a lively atmosphere around the table with people shouting, threatening each others, appealing for pity or begging for help.
