"Freibeuter der Karibik" is one of the first boardgame modules published for the YVIO game console.
The "Yvies" discs have to be inserted into pirate sailing ships, and you begin your mission to be the first player to gain 10 victory points (standard game).
Well-known ports like Cartagena or San Juan have to be visited to earn money in order to acquire equipment for your ships.
Every port requires two commodities and offers two others.
The longer the journey and the more valuable your cargo the larger your profit - but beware: What also becomes larger is the possibility to be attacked by rival pirates !
Some ports are the home of traders where you can buy equipment. These equipments not only give you victory points but also help your mission: Sails shorten your journey time and help to flee rivals, cannons help to fight them, sailors help in melee combat and larger trunks help to enlarge your profits.
And if you are too much playing for your own profit all the players loose if the rival pirates occupy at least 5 ports!
The game offers much more, and all is controlled via the YVIO console in the middle of the game board, which interacts with the ships and their "YVIES" and the electronic devices embedded in the game board and - last but not least - with the boardgame players.
And there is still enough boardgame feeling with the game board, the ship pawns you move, a cardboard ship mat with cardboard equipment and cardboard dubloons.
You don't have to learn rules, as the console steers you via an introductionary game through the shallows of the beginner in multilingual speech if so desired.
