About this deal

Finally night actions are activated, these may be found on recruited characters on each player’s ship in front of them.

It’s a simple elegant system that not only solves potential hiccups but serves as a solid way to reinforce the game’s strategic potential. However, before you crack open the case of rum you must first outwit both the Pilferer and the Automa! I have looked around at various places where I thought I might be able to get something that would work here, but so far no luck. At the end of the game, whoever has accumulated the most money is the best pirate in all of the seven seas.We’re wondering about trying out the Pilferer instead of the Midshipman at a 2-player count, and I thought I’d ask if you guys tried that out at all during playtesting. Some characters can influence the Reputation track to not only help their tiebreaking ability, but also to gain rewards. At the same time, the simultaneous choice of cards means your strategies can and will get torpedoed through no fault of your own, which can be unsatisfying. From the outside it looks like it would work just fine using the pre-printed loot tiles on either side. So why would you ever play a higher ranked character if the lower ranks can impact the game state first?

The original Libertalia game from all the way back in 2012 was often recommended when people asked for ‘Pirate game’ recommendations.Ten years since its original release and long since out of print, publisher Stonemaier Games has decided to bring back this old salt from the depths of the sea with an updated version featuring new artwork, components, and most importantly an official solo mode courtesy of the Automa Factory! Me, I’m just excited to play a game I had only ever heard good things about, but because it was out of print, I couldn’t get hold of! Chris was born in New York, raised in New Jersey, and now lives in Arizona with his gaming partner (who is incidentally his wife) and their two tiny gamers-in-training. Ten years later, we’re celebrating the foundations of the original design with a heavily revised and expanded edition that includes all-new art, 40 characters per player, a reputation system to resolve tiebreakers, premium loot tokens, a robust solo mode, and much more. With the fast setup, quick tear down, short playtime, and pretty components, I think it should be able to hit the table without intimidating anyone.
