I just beat the game on Level 4 in my second attempt.


Total sum of Cards = 36 Points
2 Aging Cards in my Deck = -10 Points
2 Pirates beaten = +30 Points
0 Life Points remaining = 0 Points
5 Hazard Cards remaining = -15 Points

Total: 41 Points

The Pirates were the one with 52 hit points (Each laid out fight card counts +1 additional battle point) and the one with 16 hit points (Each additional combat card costs 2 life).

So, although I'm afraid my score is not even close to the best, what are your best results?

Hi Marcel.

I track all of my scores of this game, but to be honest, I don't really care about the number. Mostly, I just use them as a reference for how one win may have been more successful than another within my plays. I generally don't look to add points to my score at the end just to achieve a higher score.

With that being said, here are some of my stats for Level 4:

# Level 4 Plays = 39
# Level 4 Wins = 17

Lowest Losing Score at Level 4 = -68
Lowest Winning Score at Level 4 = 30 (twice)

Highest Losing Score at Level 4 = -1
Highest Winning Score at Level 4 = 115

And congrats on your win!!!

Mo meeple

If you play aggressively enough (meaning that the initial cards with 1-power need to be destroyed at some point) you can achieve even above 150 or 170 (I don't remember which one was that). I think I once got 153 or so.

Thank you, Mo!
Yeah, I also don't focus on the high score, I'm just glad I won and a bit surprised, too, because it happened so fast. I was just curious, what result would be possible.^^

Thanks to you too, dannte, for your information. Maybe I'll try this strategy next time. =)

It's interesting to see all your stats, thank you all!

Just as an FYI, my highest score at any level is 141 at Level 5. I doubt I'll see that high of a score very often, if ever again though.

What are these levels? Isn't it just green->yellow->red->pirate? Or did I miss something in the rules?

What is Level 5? I'd never heard of it before, so I started looking, and I see many references to it, but not the rules for it.

@ mister allen: the levels are explained on page 14 of the rulebook, at least in the german version. It's listed right before the scoring part.

@ Khedron: I also didn't know of a Level 5, so I searched for it:

So you just start with 16 instead of 18 life points. Sounds challenging.
