Description

Lead your fleet of ships to accumulate doubloons and pay the ransom for the governor’s daughter!

In Black fleet, each turn puts you in control of three ships, each of which performs different actions to win money.

Your merchant ship is loaded with valuable goods and is sailing towards a port where it can exchange it’s cargo for well-earned doubloons! But will it escape the pirates?

Meanwhile, your pirate ship is trying to intercept your opponents merchants and seize their goods.? If successful, your pirate will bury this ill-gotten cargo on one of the treasure islands – but only if it can avoid the navy ships, controlled by all players, which want to sink the pirates in return for a large bounty.

    I highly recommend Black Fleet - what a great game!

    The production quality of this game is absolutely fantastic: metal coins; detailed ships that look terrific and actually hold the goods that you've loaded or looted as you sail around the large board; high quality cards that look and feel great; a nicely illustrated and straightforward rulebook; a cool looking skull and crossbones insert etc.

    Each player's fleet consists of a merchant ship used to trade various goods from port to port, a pirate ship that can attack opposition merchant ships and then bury the stolen loot on an island beach, and shared control of two navy ships to attack/ward off opposition pirate ships. Despite being an inherently aggressive game, it oddly doesn't really feel mean at all.

    I really like the card-based mechanics for ship movements, various one-off abilities/bonuses available throughout the game, and different ongoing abilities/bonuses that are gradually bought by players as the game progresses. Although Black Fleet is not a complicated game, the different combinations of abilities/bonuses in each game encourages different tactics and strategies to be employed which makes Black Fleet a lot of fun and gives plenty of replayability.

    I should note that although Black fleet is marketed as a 3-4 player game for ages 14+, there is at least one 2 player variant that works well (search the internet for 'black fleet grey elephant variant'), and I routinely play this with my 9 year old Son who wins more often than not.

    Given the relatively low cost of Black Fleet compared to other games of a similar calibre - I really think this game is a bargain!
