This is not directly sold by Amazon but is fulfilled by Amazon and qualifies for free prime shipping. Been wanting to try this one for a while and had to jump on it at this price. It is another seller offering copies for 14.99, but it appears to me that it would be some chinese knockoff as it ships from China mainland just to give anyone the heads up who may see that deal.

The game shown on the link sounds a lot more fun for some reason: Staki Tupy Kosciotrupy

Oh my, if that was the same image as when I ordered this morning then I just totally missed it. Anxious to see now what comes on Thursday.

just snagged the last copy. Sounds interesting, and that price is pretty amazing. I also avoided the 14.99 deal. that sounded scary at that price point and from where it would ship. Also, after witnessing the ghost buster and zooloretto 14.99 hot deal fiasco, I'm weary about it.

Fantastic components. Game probably plays a lot of longer than it should be. But if you like taking a crap ton of dice and dropping them in a box and attempt to manipulate them with power ups [assuming you didn't get hammered by random luck], then this game is for you.

I like it. $26 is a great price.

If you hear anything please let me know. I'll keep you posted as well. I briefly scanned the storefront to see what else they offered and nothing threw up any kind of flag. Prices were consistent with other stores and everything was in English so hopefully that's just a bad item photo that somehow got put up on Amazon. I wasn't thorough or anything but usually you can tell pretty quick. Plus everything is handled through Amazon and any issue I've ever had has been quickly resolved.

Ugh. I really struggled with this one. The components seem fantastic and I love a big heavy box for $26. But a lot of the reviews say it's too light and random for gamers yet too complicated for families etc. And then it can take 2 hours to play.

But then I watched Rahdo's review and it looks like a lot of fun. He's keeping it, but then he rates it at almost the bottom of all his ratings. But then he says it's his #1 favorite pirate game in his top 10 pirate games!

I've got a lot of games that I bought because they were cheap. I guess I'm the reason Asmodee raised their prices.

On the 40 to 50$ range, i wouldn't have bought it. This isnt the first time i looked at this game. For 26 bux though, hell yeah. If anything for the metal coins alone. Ive spent that much on just coins before. I do enjoy dice from time to time, and randomness. If you go in it with the right mindset I'm confident it won't be a bad game. I also have kids, so im sure they will enjoy it.

What kept me from pulling the trigger on this one was the "shipped from China" part.

Well, it's still a 7 which means it's a really great game, on my scale. It would rate high 7 instead of low 7 if the complaints i had in my final thoughts were addressed (which maybe the expansion does do), but in spite of that, it's still the one i have the most fun with, and if i was forced to only have 1 pirate game in my collection, it's the one i would keep

Hey Rahdo! Ok, I watched the video again and I get it now - the length. What a blast tho'. I love everything about it. BGG does not seem to love games like these that straddle the line between serious and light - but we love both types of games - we love randomness and we love fun so next time this comes around I'm getting it.

PS - thanks Rahdo for your videos so that we can really decide if we like a game or not by watching.

My game group truly disliked it, and asked it not be brought back, but I like it and I bought the expansion at GenCon this year.

As I recall, and I haven't played it in about a year or so, I felt there was some imbalance/runaway leader in the way you get the cards for points. Not sure if this has been addressed by now.

Good deal for those who got this for $26.
