Dead Man’s Doubloons is an action packed board game for 2 to 6 players, playable in 30 to 45 minutes. Each player takes on the role of a legendary pirate ship captain, hell-bent on winning the race to endless riches of buried treasure.
As the game begins, pirate ships skirmish with one another and navigate coral reefs surrounding the mysterious island, searching for map fragments and pillaging whatever they can along the way. Captains advance their landing party along the path toward the buried treasure, encountering perilous obstacles and foes at each step. One savvy Captain will ultimately manage to find and dig up the buried treasure.
All Captains then return to their vessels to engage in final battle on the high seas. Defeated vessels become ghost ships, but may still emerge victorious. Map fragments, gold doubloons, and precious jewels can all be stolen, as can rival ships! Once enough 'Captain Actions” have been taken, the game ends and the richest Pirate is the winner!

* EVERYTHING can be stolen in this game: Doubloons, Map Fragments, Jewels, and even other Ships!
* Visually stunning, fast gameplay, innovative, simple yet deep, caters to a wide audience.
