Tiny Epic Pirates is the latest game in the well-received Tiny Epic board game series, designed by Scott Almes and published by Gamelyn Games. In Tiny Epic Pirates, 1-4 players will be taking to the tiny epic seas to plunder treasure and bury the wealth before their fellow scallywags. The game takes about an hour and features a rondel action system where players will choose one of the following on their turn: Plunder, Trade, Crew Up, Attack, or Search. Once a player buries three treasures and everyone has had an equal number of turns, the game ends. The player who has buried three treasures wins the game. If there is a tie, it will be decided in favor of the player who has the highest legendary status, followed by which player has the most gold.
In the Tiny Epic Pirates: Curse of Amdiak expansion, some cursed gold, a ghost ship, ancient relics, haunted map cards, and a skeleton crew are added into the pirating mix.
I got my hands on the Kickstarter editions of these two games and unboxed them for your viewing pleasure. Take a look at what’s inside these brand new boxes:
