Battle away across the high seas and search for stolen treasure with the pirate board game, Sword and Skull. Read reviews of this family board game about life as a pirate.

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.

    I'm not saying the characters they have are bad choices, they just don't have enough characters to choose from considering the Wii U is more powerful then a PS3 and a Xbox 360.

    super Smash bros for wii u doesn't have any new characters that makes me want to pay $50 when the magorady of the game is Brawl with upscalled + graphics, touch screen gimics and 30 (something) characters on BOTH the wii u and the 3ds verson. for the 3dS it's alriht, but for the Wii U this isn't lookin to good. The wii u is capable of more then that if it can run assasin's Creed 3. I'm still gettin the ame though.

    Well, we both hope that Super Smash Bros for Wii U will really save it. I doubt that, but I hope Nintendo doesn't screw up this version like they did with Mario Kart 8. Mario Kart 8 SUCKS compared to Mario Kart Wii... maybe it was best for you to rent the game, because you would SLIGHTLY be disappointed when you beat the game and play online. By the way, I'm getting the new 3DS LL that's coming out next year.

    To make a point, that Nintendo needs to do something or the Wii U will be the next virtual boy with no ames. I don't mean literally, no aames but it's missing 3rd party games that last gen consoles are etting such as the PS3 and Xbox 360.
