In this new update to the popular, award-winning family game, the players play cards to move their pirates actress Tortuga, leap-frogging over the other players' pieces at just the right times. The challenge comes in deciding which pirate to move with which card so you don't help the other players more than you help yourself, as well as when to move a pirate backwards to draw cards. The first player to move all their pirates to the Sloop at the end of the Island will win. This new version also includes new "black magic" variant which allows the players to use the cards' special abilities.
First, you can choose which part of the story to play. The basic-game reproduces only the first part of the jailbreak: the escape from the fortress to the sloop; but you may also choose to play the second part through the island of Tortuga or the whole story as well. You can also shorten or stretch the game, varying the number of board segments and/or pirates.
Then, you can give a try to the Morgan version. It’s an alternative way of recharging cards, which will force you to explore completely new strategies.
Finally, you can land to the Black Magic Woman system. Things change here. Whatever scenario and version you choose, everything becomes magical and each card acquires a special and intriguing power: it’s up to you to decide when and where to use them.
Not enough for you? Easy! You’ll find more nice surprises!
