Yo-Ho-Ho and a Barrel of Fun! Set sail for an exciting adventure of strategy and skullduggery in this captivating card game. Storm your opponents' merchant ships and seize valuable treasure. But watch your back, matey - plundering pirates are out to capture your ships as well! The player with the most loot rules the high seas.

The cards show trading ships and pirate ships, with pirates and an admiral serving as trump cards. Players send a trading ship of value on a voyage in which it must survive a round of attacks from other player's pirate ships. You defend your traders with your own pirates and collect the spoils of your attacks elsewhere.

This is one of those games that will appeal to older children and adults alike! It’s simple to learn and fast to play, two of our favourite attributes in a game. Loot was designed by Reiner Knizia, and has won a slew of awards including the Mensa Select.
