Plunder Straits

Pirates take all on the high seas in Plunder Straits!
This game is inspired by Pirates, those free-wheeling rogues who roamed the open seas. Only the most ruthless won notoriety and great treasure. Are YOU one?

Plunder Straits is a pirate-themed strategy board game where players sail around a map, entering harbors and trading cargo for gold. Each turn, players draw Plunder cards which can benefit them by giving them extra turns or gold or by increasing their ability to defend, attack, or move. Players can also attack other players and take their cargo, gold, or abilities for themselves. The first player to bury 50 gold, become a pirate captain and keep their Jolly Roger flying wins the game.

Plunder Straits game play closely follows the way it was for pirates - high risk and big rewards. You could be at the top, about to take it all and win the game, and suddenly have it all taken away. You could look like you're losing and then have your fortune change in a single turn. A combination of skill and luck are needed to win.

Further down the page, you can download a free PDF version of the rules and read the details for yourself.

We're taking no profit currently and selling the game at cost to gauge interest and get feedback. So, please, if you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at info@monkeyplaysgames.com.
