about the game

Take to the seas, pirate captains!

The merchants are over burdened with goods and money and need your assistance to relieve them of their troubles. But be leery! The King’s navy are on the lookout for the Jolly Roger. Get your loot, sell it, and be the one with the most wealth at the end of the season by any means necessary!

Scourge of the High Seas is played over 7 rounds where players will move their ship to attack merchants, islands, navy, or other players in order to gain supplies to sell at market in trade for money. Once sold, bury the money and treasure to keep it safe for the end of the game. Whoever has the most points at the end of the game wins.
