Plays very well with 3 to 6 (haven't played with more yet). With two players, the games are very skewed based on the draw, but still a lot of fun if you take it lightly. Feels a lot like Hearts, and not just in the trick-taking but in the ebb and flow of the values of the tricks. The colors of the suits is a definite problem, and there should have been different symbols in addition to the colors. One very good thing is that you can get this game for less than $5 at WalMart. This game playes very will with kids. Not a good choice as a 2-player if either player is new to the game. Looking forward to trying out the partnership rules.

I LOVE this card game: it isn't groundbreaking in any way but it's a blast to play. As far as card games go, this is my favorite.

This is one of the rare games that gets better with larger number of people. Its ultra simple and can get very chaotic, but that is what makes it so fun.

If you're looking for a filler game with some simple fighting, look no further than this game. It always pleases the gaming group when this one hits the table.

Tons of fun. I really like the team play. It has a great proportion of fun to length of game. The Korsar edition also comes in a cool black box.

Another really great game for young kids. I rate it a 9 because I'm looking at it in terms of a game for a young child. Our son started playing this when he just turned 5. It seemed a little difficult for him right then but about 8 months later, he was very into it. And he can beat us. After much searching for kid's recs at BGG back in January this is one of the games that made my final buy list and it was a good choice. I recommend it for people who want to play a game with a young child that's more involved than games standard kid's games. We enjoy it too and it's a good light family game.

I've found the game to be simple and fun every time. The only complaint I have is the game can suck a big one if you draw nothing but merchant ships. I play the game with 2 combined decks and that has increased the fun factor plus I removed some of the lower value merchant ships from deck 2 as that gives more pirate ships and more fighting. After at least 100 plays I still like this game.

This was a one of those random purchases that turned out to be pretty nice. Rules are fairly simple and the game is pretty fast pace. It's not quite as fun to play with only 2 players but you can do it. We've played with 4 so far and that was a blast. Great artwork on the cards and it wasn't expensive either.

I know it is not much of a gamer's game. But for a fun, screwball party game, it does the trick quite well. Easy to pick up and the game time is relatively short.

Pure fun filler. Great game to play with the family. We have played this many times in the short time we have had it and each one has been thoroughly enjoyable. Don't expect anything deep and meaningful here, just go with the flow and have a laugh.

Great game. Quick, light play with some strategy and very young kids can play. The adults, gamers and non-gamers alike, AND my young nephews and nieces loved it. Worth it's weight in gold just because of that. And don't overlook the team-play rules, they add to the game.

Que grande surpresa! E das boas!

Achei que fosse um jogo bem bobinho, mas se mostrou um baita jogo!!! Muito leve e fácil de pegar, todo mundo que jogou curtiu.

Há navios mercantes com vários valores de moedas, e navios piratas com vários valores de ataque. Os jogadores devem juntar o máximo de moedas até o fim do jogo. Para ganhar um navio mercante, deve ter a maior força de ataque, ou então colocando seu próprio navio mercante no mar e ele não sendo atacado.

Acquired December 2006 (a surprise gift from another BGG gamer)

[Original comment] This has become a real favorite in the family. I like it with any number of players from 2 to 8. The play tactics have to change with more players, but it is always a quick and fun game.

May 2009 -- We play this occasionally, mostly at my suggestion. I really enjoy it, but not all the family members care much for it.

October 2011 -- I have always enjoyed this game, but the rest of the family are not really wild about it. It only gets played occasionally.

2013-November: We don't play this very often, but it's still fun.

One of those games you remember how to play without having to reread the manual first. Quick and fun play, and the Gamewright version is much nicer to look at than the Knizia original.

Plays fast and easy with the kids, and as there's no reading even the younger kids can play along - in somewhat surprising ways, sometimes.

This is a fun little card game in which you play merchant ships with values ranging from 2-8. Players place any pirate ship cards (numbered from 1-4 in strength) on your merchant ship in an attempt to plunder the merchant ship. The player with the most gold at the end of the game wins.
This is a great game for beginners. I got my non-gamer sister and her husband (who would tease me about playing board games, by the way) wanting to buy this game. I myself, who like heavier and strategic games, also enjoy this game as a light card game that is good at breaking the ice.
