We review the new Pirates of the Caribbean card game and the Quickstrike dueling system!

Avast ye blaggarts! The swordfighting pirate action of the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest movie has come to life with this card game. It lets you duel as Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and other pirates, (even as the freaky Davy Jones), against your friends with the fast-and-furious Quickstrike dueling system. Here's the 411 with Gary's card game review.

Pirates of the Caribbean - Dueling Pirates and Monsters!

The dueling action in the Pirates of the Caribbean card game is powered by the Quickstrike trading card game system. First you pick your pirate by choosing a Chamber Card with two super moves. Then you make a 40-card deck of Strike, Ally and Advantage cards. Then you duel your friends! The first player to make three successful attacks wins. A 2-Player Starter Set gets you and a friend battling for $13 US and $4 US Booster Packs give you 10 new cards and a new pirate for your collection.

Pirates of Caribbean - Swashbuckling Action and Pirate Treasure

The Quickstrike system is a terrific way to duel. It's a fast, back-and-forth, attack and counterattack game that feels just like a real pirate swordfight, without all the stabbing and bleeding. Another cool feature is that the Avatar: The Last Airbender card game uses the Quickstrike system too, so you can battle pirates vs. martial artists!

Pirates of the Caribbean - Awful Monsters and Pirate Problems

The biggest bummer is that the cards don't have any pictures of Captain Jack Sparrow, Will Turner or the other characters from the Pirates of the Caribbean movies! Instead it's all artwork. It's also strange that you can duel as Elizabeth Swann and get her as an ally at the same time - it's attack of the clones all over again!

Pirates of the Caribbean - Booty or Shipwreck?

The pirates kick butt on the big screen with their movies and their card game rocks too! The Quickstrike system is fast, fun and perfect for swordfighting duels. Being able to mix it with cards from the Avatar: the Last Airbender card game just makes it better. Try it out and you won't be disappointed.

Pirates of the Caribbean Card Game Thumbs Up:

  • Quickstrike = Pirates of the Caribbean + Avatar = pirate vs. ninja duels! Yarrr!
  • Fast and fun dueling system.
  • The Starter Set is awesome for storing cards.
  • Unleash the kraken with Davy Jones!

Pirates of the Caribbean Card Game Thumbs Down:

  • No pictures of the pirates, all the pictures are drawings.
  • Pirate clones?

Darn, those are both my favorite board games, you can't make me choose! I'm a little more successful with Scrabble even at those times I get nothing but vowels. So I guess Scrabble
