You are a crewmember on board of a pirate ship and you have just elected your new captain. This man will lead you toward fortune or disaster… Luckily, if you don’t agree with his choices, you can always start a mutiny and become the next captain yourself!
Jolly Roger: the Game of Piracy & Mutiny is a card game of pillage, plunder, and mutinies for 4 to 10 pirates.
Every turn, the Captain chooses a destination for the ship. When the ship attacks, players will (more or less!) cooperate to win, playing crew cards from their hands to win the battle and take the prize. Treasure gained is divided between all pirates, but your gold is never secure until you bury it at Treasure Island…
Unrest is always brewing – each time the Captain makes a choice, it si possible for one of the other players to call, “Mutiny” to try to overthrow him and become the new Captain. And when the mutiny begins, you’ll need to decide how to use your card during the Mutiny and the looming battle. How much will you co-operate, and what will you keep to yourself to be ready when the next mutiny begins?
Fast, rowdy, and easy to learn, Jolly Roger is equally fun for casual players and veterans of a thousand battles.
Designed by Fréderic Moyersoen (Saboteur, Nuns on the Run) and illustrated by the talented Loïc Billiau (Glen More, Cherokee, Auf die Nüsse), Jolly Roger is the first card game to be published by Ares Games.
Number of Players: 4-10
