About the game:
It is 1713. After a decade of war, a rare peace comes to the Spanish Main but peace has its consequences. With thousands of demobilized sailors, piracy explodes in the West Indies. A small group of pirates (Black Sam, Calico Jack, Anne Bonny, & Blackbeard) form themselves into a Flying Gang. They desire fame and fortune and self-governance by building their own republic free from the constraints of kings, queens, and imperialism. Who will prevail? This loose band of outcasts or the European colonial powers?
The Pirate Republic is a semi-cooperative, thematic adventure where the sea is your territory, anyone on or near it, your prey. Each player represents an infamous pirate captain working to complete collaborative and secret mission objectives over four rounds of play to bring an end to European imperialism.
A game of The Pirate Republic has captains working together to explore the New World, engage in sea and land combat, plunder Spanish treasure fleets, and conquer heavily defended colonial territories.
Are you ready to forge the Pirate Republic? Transport yourself to a time of conquest & the lure of riches, indomitable spirit & fat treasure galleons, pirate utopias and watery graves.
Number of players: 2-4 (adding a solo variant, miniature ships, & 5th player are some of the many Kickstarter stretch goals)
