Tiny Epic Pirates is a 1-4 player dice rolling and pick-up-and-deliver game of pirates rivaling for treasure. It is part of the popular Tiny Epic series by Gamelyn Games, and it will launch on Kicstarter on May 19.
Tiny Epic Pirates employs a rondel mechanism for the actions you will be performing each turn. You will place your Captain pawn on the wheel, to select one out of five available actions: Plunder, Crew Up, Trade, Search or Attack. Plunder means you collect loot from settlements. With Crew Up, you recruit a new member for your ship. Trade allows you to sell goods in the Black Market. You may Search for treasures or random finds, and Attack merchant ships or other pirates to increase your notoriety and steal their gold. During the action phase, you can also move your pirate ship on the map.
There are specific spots on the map suitable for burying treasure. Once you amass a certain amount of riches, you can bury them. The game ends when a pirate first buries three treasures. Solo rules have not been revealed yet.
