Battle away across the high seas and search for stolen treasure with the swashbuckling adventure board game, Sword and Skull. In this board game, players battle and buy their way across the Caribbean high seas in an effort to retrieve a Royal Navy ship from the hands of pirates. Sword and Skull is similar to fantasy-strategy games like Magic the Gathering; players use Fortune, Item and Settlement cards to increase their combat power, defeat opponents and win the game. Each player used a Royal Navy officer and a vicious pirate to circle the game board while battling enemies and collecting weapons, good fortune and gold. The first player with enough money or might to defeat the Pirate King wins the game.

Sword and Skull is a fast-moving board game with action at pretty much every move. With one roll of the dice you could be fighting a crocodile, battling an opponent's pirate and hauling in a treasure chest filled with gold! If you enjoy fantasy-adventure games and have ever imagined what it would like to be a pirate, the Sword and Skull is definitely worth checking out.
