Each pirate has a secret loyalty to the French or British. Players will use their Vote cards to attack the Spanish for treasure, mutiny against selfish captains, and brawl against their fellow pirates. Players may also reveal Event cards during the game to help their team and to hurt their enemies. But beware, if you reveal the Black Spot you’ll be marooned to Tortuga. When the Spanish Armada card is revealed, the team with the most treasure wins. Packaging is a magnetic book box, and the board is a rubber mat disguised as a treasure map.
