It’s 1718 and King George I of Great Britain has just re-issued his royal pardon to all those engaged in piracy around the globe. However, it’s the Golden Age of Piracy and there are still rich prizes for the taking!
A short life but a merry one! That’s the pirate way! But a few did get out alive, and with their treasure too!
Can ye do it? Will ye head fer shore before yer doom befalls ye? Or perhaps the call of all that gold and silver is just too strong fer ye to heel about.
Time fer just one more run?
Avast! The glass is falling fast!
Pirate Pursuit – The King’s Pardon is a push-yer-luck card game for 2–6 players where, from time to time, yer famous pirates will be offered the King’s Pardon. Some may grab it quick and retire with their treasure hoard. Others might resist, sailing back out for just one more prize!
Players choose from eight famous pirates and then take turns asking each other questions about real pirate lore! Answer right and yer pirate adds the card to their treasure hoard. But, if yer doom catches up with ye before ye can take the King’s Pardon, then too bad; ye can’t take it with ye!
