What's all this nonsense about sea battles with thundering canons and grappling hooks? In reality, venerable pirates preferred to hold their battles at gaming tables in shabby taverns using playing cards. The one who was not only able to wangle the most tricks from their opponent but also succeed in predicting them most accurately, won the contest.

Played over 10 rounds, players predict how many tricks they will win, based on the cards they've been dealt (one card is added each round). A host of different characters trump each other, so think carefully before you make a rash promise in front of swashbuckling pirates - they're known for their cutting sarcasm.

Contents: 66 cards.

The 2018 edition includes new expansion cards - Mermaids, Loot, the Kraken - and new powers for each member of the pirate crew.
