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
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.
Sword and Skull - Thumbs Up
Easy to set up and rules are well explained - no problems learning how to play.
Lots of action - adventure and battles with every roll of the dice.
Very creative game with cool enemies and weapons.
Sword and Skull - Thumbs Down
Not much one-on-one combat if you only play with two players. Best to play with three or more.
