They're looking for funding over on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Pirates! is a fun and engaging card game created by game geeks, illustrators and product designers. It took over 4 years to develop - from the first prototype to the final illustrations.
Pirates! is the first card game that uses a unique combination of cards, crew tokens and dice. The playing cards (in contrast to the traditional board games) make of every turn an unexpected adventure, just like a real pirates’ life. The customised dice and crew tokens bring fun and excitement to the battles.
Our dream and months of hard work will come true when people from all over the world will play Pirates! together!
