Yarr arr yarr! I loddie the hotpants!
Thar be treasure out there in them waters, yarr! I be spyin’ a Spanish galleon now! Arr! We best be gettin’ to what pirates do best! Lootin’ and plunderin’! But ye be keepin’ yer hands of me treasure, mehearties, lest ye be left on the shores of Tortuga to rot!
At last, that’s the idea in Tortuga 1667, a new pirate-themed board game up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
The year is 1667 and you are a pirate sailing the waters of the Caribbean. A Spanish Galleon floats nearby, and you’ve talked your crewmates into working together to steal all of its treasure. What you haven’t told your fellow pirates is that you have no intentions on sharing the treasure once you have it. Your crewmates have told you that they share your loyalty and that they’ll help you maroon the greedy pirates on your ship to the rocky island of Tortuga. But you’ve seen your friends’ loaded pistols and heard their whisperings of a mutiny. You know that nobody can be trusted.
The Kickstarter is doing rather well (putting it mildly). They’re, oh, about 19x funded (and then some) with still 14 days left to go.
