From the campaign:
Pirates disembark on Treasure Island and try to find as much gold as possible. Each player controls 3 sailors, who can move around the island, carry found treasures, fight enemies, and find adventures. If you're someone who likes digging for buried treasure, fighting pirates, meeting crocodiles, looking down the barrel of a cannon, and dragging gold back to your ship, then shiver me timbers, this just might be the board game for you!
The Kickstarter campaign's up and running now. They're about 1/4 of the way to their goal with still 29 days to go.
