Sailing the Seven Seas With the Pirates of the Spanish Main!To get started on the game, crack open a pack of the cards. You'll get the rules, an island, some treasure and a ship or two. The ships each have ratings for their attack power, defense, speed and cargo room. The higher the ratings, the more points the ship costs. Plus, you can add special crew to each ship for more powers. Each player has to use the same number of points of ships in each game so spend carefully!
Pirates of the Spanish Main - Loot & BootyBeing able to build your own fleet of pirate ships from a pack of cards is pretty sweet. Looting and plundering with them is just extra fun. If you don't dig the pirate thing, you can play with British or Spanish ships as well.
Scurvy and Worse in Pirates of the Spanish MainThe biggest problem with the Pirates of the Spanish Main is keeping your ships from getting busted. They can be stored in the cards, but taking them apart and putting them together all the time is a pain in the butt too. Each pack of ships comes with some treasure and, at the end of each game, the winner gets to keep all the treasure in the game. If you run out, you need to grab more game packs to get more treasure to keep on playing.
