PLUNDER A PIRATE’S LIFE OVERVIEW
Adventure and riches await any swashbuckler brave enough to take the helm and command a fleet. Wage war against rival captains. Build and upgrade your ships with masts and cannons to increase speed and firepower. Conquer islands and exploit the land to gain valuable resources. Navigate dangerous waters and avoid the ever-wandering storm. Are you ruthless enough to prevail? Do you seek gold and infamy? If ruling the seas is your ambition, it’s time to unleash your inner pirate. It’s time to plunder!
Plunder: A Pirate’s Life is a competitive, strategy-based gateway game played on a modular ocean map. The goal is to gain ten Plunder Points. Plunder points are obtained by conquering islands, sinking enemy ships, and burying treasure. On your turn, draw one Resource card for each island you own. Trade and manage your resources (wood, iron, rum, gold) to build and upgrade your fleet using miniatures and pegs. Ships sail the open map via roll and move. Battle enemy ships and conquer islands via dice combat. Game also features team play.

Plunder A Pirate’s Life is a game with a great theme that was built for broad audiences of all ages. If you want to live your life as a pirate, commanding a fleet on the high seas, this game might be for you. If you are looking for a deep strategy game with endless options, you should keep on walking. The game is fun and light and very on theme, but much of the gameplay, especially at the beginning, comes down to pure luck. While never the greatest once you get over this hump, the game has plenty to enjoy.
