We've talked about making a pirate-themed game for years but wanted to wait until the right one came along. From the moment we first played Loot, we knew we found our buried treasure! Renown game inventor Reiner Knizia has created a highly clever card game that is at once simple to learn and fast to play while engaging those looking for strategic challenges. We're particularly fond of the team play version, where you and a partner get to look at each other's cards and conspire moves. We find that the game's even more fun when everyone talks in pirate accents when playing. Give it a try and you'll be hooked!
