Seas of peril you've crossed, fighting monsters and men, to set foot on the fabled Black Skull Island. There's just one problem: You're not alone. In fact, it seems that everyone and their parrot are already here!
Black Skull Island is a game of pirate intrigue for two to nine treasure-hunting sea wolves, ready to fill their pockets with pure gold! This wild, pirate adventure plays fast enough to fit in your lunch break, and it packs enough of a punch to entertain a group of friends for a whole night!
Black Skull Island is played over a number of rounds. Every round, each player will play a Character Card (or two, if you are playing a 2-player game) face down on the table. When everyone has chosen which Characters to play, all Character Cards are flipped face-up, and their special abilities are resolved in the order of their respective Activation Numbers (the lowest numbered card is resolved first). After resolving all Character abilities, each player takes back the Character or Characters still in front of them. If at that point any player has 7 or more Booty Cards in front of them, the game ends, and Booty is counted to see who wins.
