Board Games 805
I never thought I'd say this...
But this game is a "truckload of random."

My tagline for it would be: "Blackbeard: The Game That Just Sort of Happens to You."

Everything that happens in this game does so by die roll. EVERYTHING. Fight? Loot? Movement? Placement of Governors? Effects of cards? EVERYTHING.

So you move around, try to loot some ships, draw some cards, hope you get the "I WIN!" retirement card, hope no one gets the "NO YOU FUCKING DON'T" double-cross card, and call it a day.

I'm not even sure what they were going for here...a weird mix of theme and total abstraction on several levels.

Pretty much an ambitious, interesting failure.
