Ships can be attacked, and their treasure was taken. They can then be sailed to the port and sold as a prize for extra treasure. Any ship not attacked stays on the High Seas for other Pirates to attack, and as this is open water others may help for a share of the treasure.

Going First is Important, and the Fastest Ship each turn (with the most sails) Receives the first Player marker and gets to perform their action first, however they must choose their action first the next round.
Going First may be important, but not always a good thing.

Many a Pirate has been caught out for being too bold.

The Kickstarter showed promise but quickly platoed However what will happen now.?The Fundrasing Progress shows a lot really sudden spike of interest and suddenly nothing, which prompted a obvious

The tactical play in High Seas Pirates makes it fun for all ages, and the game plays fantastically well for just two people as well as the maximum of six.
