I just got my copy of Pirate Dice in the mail this past week and I'm super excited to get it to the table. Our gaming group regularly runs 10 or so players and I'm fairly certain the extra set of dice for a fifth player will see quite a bit of use.
With this in mind, as I read through the rules for the first time I wasn't able to determine how a player would orient their Skullduggery commands when they are placed when playing with five. Since there are only 4 orientations (N/S/E/W) and five possible targets, how is this handled?
For that, you'll want to just point the arrow of the die physically to the person, and it won't be locked precisely to N/S/E/W. As long as people understand who you had in mind when you placed the targeted die.
Also, I know I said this elsewhere, but if you're going to be playing with 5 players, I highly recommend that you use the 'Duggery Doubloons variant and a 2x2 map layout -- at least for starters.
Thanks so much!
