When do you think people die? When they are shot through the heart by the bullet of a pistol? No. When they are ravaged by an incurable disease? No. When they drink a soup made from a poisonous mushroom!? No! It’s when… they are forgotten.

My favorite thing about BoardGameGeek is being able to find new games to try based on reviews, recommendations, and being able to browse the database. BoardGameGeek is one of the few sites that I am on every day!

Pieces of Eight - Steal the Booty! Drink the Rum! (base game)

Oh, I like this game, but a word of caution. After you play the game 12 or more times in a row, it starts to get pretty dull. There are only so many cards and only so many ways to use them. But the number of times I played the game is highly abnormal and I doubt anyone would play this game more than a few times a month. Regardless, the game has a lot of replay value. With 120 cards (and an expansion available), there are many different ways the game can go and each game is different, providing a high level or replayability. The end result is a very enjoyable, fast, and fun casual game that appealed to all three of our groups, despite some of them thinking that Ninjas were superior.

Review of "Buccaneers" Pieces of Eight Game Expansion

With no new rules to learn and fast inclusion with the base game, the expansion is an easy one to play with right out of its box. For those who like to keep expansions separate from the base game when not in play, there is an icon on all the expansion cards to help make separating them an easy task. But really, I don’t see why you would ever want to. The cards are great and add more fun to the game without really adding more weight to the game. No new rules, no additional set up, and no increase to the game’s length. Just more crazy pirate awesomeness that is sure to make players smile.

And all our players did. When we introduced the new cards, the responses were either full of excitement or somewhat sarcastic remarks that suggested the cards should have been included right from the start. As for me, having played the base game so many times, I was very happy to see new cards show up in play. As far as I’m concerned, the expansion adds to the game’s replayability and fun, making it shipshape and good to go. Many of our players agreed and gave it their approval. The only negative criticism we received was a bit of disappointment that there were no new Captains, like One-Eyed Willie from The Goonies.

Well-received card and dice game for 2-5 players.

Players start with a captain and two mates, and five random cards (crewmen, supplies, raids). Players collect pieces of eight by performing successful raids on other ships.
