Dead Man's Draw is a new arrival to our collection, and a super easy game to learn and play. It manages to be a quick play while also being loaded with theme and great artwork. Definitely worth a try!

When Merchants & Marauders starts to click, you really feel as if you're bounding across the high seas, getting into and out of scrapes and seeking adventure high and low. You can almost taste the salt spray in your mouth.

There aren't a lot of games more thematically rich than this one! "Yarr, 'tis a fine, fine game!"

This is not my top pirate game; that distinction goes to M&M above (which that swashbuckling David beat me to). Black Fleet is a more playful pick up and deliver game where the narrow straights between the board's archipelago provide ever-changing navigational challenges from one port with another. Cute ships, cute artwork, but still room for strategy and cunning. arrrh

My kids really like this pirate game. Each person secretly chooses a destination, if 2+ people choose the same place, they battle. Winner takes the spoils. It involves upgrading ships, collecting treasure, and fighting eachother and other legendary pirates. Good, clean, fun game that is easy to teach and good for kids.

I mean - my favourite is actually Merchants and Marauders - but this little gem is a great two player filler game with lots of treasure to be had. Yarr!

Yarr she blows, a party game from the shelves of the cafe, of pressing your luck to steal and plunder loot from ye feller mates on the high seas. Grab as much of yer loot as ye can, but watch out. Davey Jones has his cursed coins amongst the bunch and ye may just get stuck and be doomed to a life in his locker under the sea.

Another great cafe game about pirate life! Libertalia is one of a handful of middleweight cafe games that can also handle up to 6 players.

Next to Black Fleet this is our favorite pirate game in our household.

The artwork is amazing! The game is easy for young kids to understand and fun enough for adults.

This racing game is one that should be on every pirate board game list.
