Featuring: Pirate Bones by Kevin L. Jones

Avast ye, maties! A story told on yonder waves, Of winds that sail ye to your graves! Cannon roar as ships go down, And chests of treasure can be found! Drink up, ‘til all the rum be gone, And roll the bones in pirate song! Pirate Bones is the perfect dice game for serious and casual gamers alike. Players earn reputation from winning battles and burying treasure chests. Simple to learn and flat-out fun to play, it offers light strategy amidst the risk of a roll. There are two expansions in the works: Pirate Lords incorporates variable player powers along with a crew morale feature. Uncharted Seas expands the card repertoire to include sea monsters, disease and the Mysterious Island. Pirate Bones plays 2-7, ages 10 to adult, in 45-60 minutes.
