Vast Surfing and Swing Yer Deadlights Here

Son of a bitch, mates!  Why was I not told about this game?
I love me some pirates.
I'm excited about many things, including the new Ghost Rider film coming out and Aquaman comics and stuff, but I can't resist pirate stuff.  Since I was a wee landlocked tyke I've been a pirate at heart.
So when I found out this game existed only yesterday I was overcome with glee, but then sadness.  Because I didn't know about it.
Look at the bits (230 of them):
I admit it; I love a game full of bits.  Miniatures, cardboard standies, dice, little coins, troop counters, plastic canons, from RISK to MONOPOLY to those complex AVALON HILL games, I love a game box full of fiddly bits.
4 Captains competing for piratey glory.  I'm likely to pick Davy Jones or Blackbeard.  To be honest I'm not a big Jack Sparrow fan.  I like the character well enough, but I'm no gushing girly fanboi.  And Davy is badarse with his cephalopodian noggin.  And who couldn't love Ian McShane as Blackbeard?
I'm even fond of old Hector Barbossa as Geoffrey Rush is a really fun actor and seems to enjoy the part.
Check out the link below if you'd like.  Or look it up on Board Game Geek if you are inclined.

You won't get any "yarrs" out of me, so don't wait for it.

But I can spare a "yo ho" I believe.
