I've been thinking about a game day featuring pirates as a central theme. But I would like the games to be a little more unique than just having the word "pirate" in their title (i.e. Pirate's Cove).
I know that 2 such games exist.

aRRRRrrrrh there others? arrrh

I'm guessing that many exist.

There are Space Pirate cards in this game (they are really your only "foes"). And Pirate bases have to be taken out in the multi-player Starfarers of Catan too.

You must have four players but if you do, this one is great and rather short.

Works well as a filler or end of the night final game.

Jamaica doesn't have Pirate's in it's title. But the game is a light fun racing game around the island of Jamaica as pirates! Beautiful components, worth the price! And fun for all ages.

Puts you at the helm of a booty-looting ship. Not a party game, but if you forget to pay out at the end of your turn, the other players yell "Mutiny!" and you lose either your first mate, your crew, or both.
Deeper game which involves allegiances, treaties, and competition for modular board space.

Here is one more. I recall space pirates in this game too! Not central to the game but a pirate element non the less.

I played this with the designer at his booth at Origins back in June, and it seems like it would be a fun game with more evenly matched opponents.

Space pirates show up to plunder your rickety transports.

Not a very good picture of the pirate cards in this game but it's the only one that's decent:
