AHOY Shipmates! Time fa-ya-ta build a pirate empire in the uncharted Plunder Islands of the Karrabean—er, Caraboonian—er, near the Gulf of Mexico! As a feared and Salty Sea Dawg you will seize your destiny of buccaneerrific awesomeness, and gather hordes of pirates, hoards of doubloons, ever greater infamy, and (of course) ever more booty!
Dark Seas is a tile placement game. Each player builds their island, filling its ports with docks, hideouts, and more. Players sail their ships around their islands, building their reputation by recruiting pirates, gathering doubloons, and acquiring treasure and infamy. Whoever amasses the greatest reputation wins and becomes the richest, meanest, most feared Sea Dawg of the “Isles near the Gulf of Mexico!”
