Doesn't that sound like a great name for a humrous pirate game? Unfortunatley, I can't think of what players would do in it. What are your ideas? Thanks!

Oh, and I mean booty as in treasure, not, the, uh, other kind. If you know what I mean!

Sounds like a bragging contest.
Go loot, win veeps, losers spend loot instead to get eqpt. towards later expeditions.
Could be onto something here....

I don't care if you do. I just had the idea for the name.

Actually I think that a game with female pirates sailing the high seas in search of male slaves for Harem duty would be interesting. The best looking guys are kept in the most tightly defended forts and you'd need to upgrade your ships and weapons to crack such nuts. Or you could try seduction rather than warfare and upgrade your Ship's love shack. Pirate wenches starting out just have a piece of eight jewelry and a stuffed parrot. Maybe water beds and insense that smells like steak or beer would be good upgrades.

Just a thought.


Haha! That would be fun too! Hmmm, or what about a Pirate Pimp. I know I said I didn't want to reallt vernture into this territory, but it's fun.

I think he means he was passing on a concept and hadn't meant to venture into game design. But it's an awful bug that bites you and demands tribute in the form of long nights of sitting down with pen, paper and pizza.


I did mean "really venture", but I didn't mean it in that context. I meant I didn't really plan to venture into the pimp/female pirate, etc territory. I've started designing plenty of games! Unfortunately, I've not finished one yet, as a new idea bites me too often! But I'll do it soon enough.

I just had an idea: some sort of auction, similar to invoking Ra in the eponymous game. Pirates collect treasure and then someone can make a "booty call" to start an auction.

Maybe not that specifically, I guess I'm just saying that you should make a "booty call" some sort of game mechanic
