The game ends when you run out of cards or find a special “Win” card near the end of the deck.
Playing is pretty simple, we try not to make things too complicated for drunk people. but there are several different ways to play the game depending on whether you want a fast game, an intense one or some strategic options. We recommend between 3-8 players and new players can join or leave at any point without affecting game play. Want to know more? Read on!
Cards are separated into several different types.
Purple/Hive: Everyone takes part in the card action.
Green/Action: An action or event for you as well as possibly another player.
Red/Fail: A penalty or negative ‘buff’.
Blue/Win: Penalizes others, or a positive ‘buff’.
The card on the left is discarded after it is played. The right card, has a duration symbol. This one means that you play it in front of you and it remains active. You must continue to speak like a pirate, until another card discards that active card. Other cards might be usable multiple times, or last for a set number of rounds.
