Has anyone heard anything about the new Pirates game being released by Eagle Games this summer? I'm a big fan of the original PC game and I was wondering how it would make the transition to boardgame. Any Geek guesses? It's time to speculate. . .

They are currently deciding between two designs. One is more of a Euro-style game and the other tries to capture more of the feel of the computer game (sailing, ship combat, sword play, etc). That's all I can say with any accuracy.

On the more speculative side, I don't think there is any way they will make a GenCon release date. This is too bad because they are missing an easy marketing tie-in with the Pirates movie coming out this summer.

In that case, and considering that it's Eagle Games, I'd think two sets of rules would be a distinct possibility.

Yes, I'm also getting the feeling that this is one that will have its release date pushed back a few times before we see it.
