Raise the sail and straight on 'til morning.

How else could the honorable Henry Morgan celebrate his 30 years of governing Jamaica than with a race around the island? Gathering every Pirate and Buccaneer around, the "Great Challenge" will be a memorable race. Not to mention - what's better than a race where you can earn some booty and shoot at your opponents? The ''Great Challenge'', that's what!

The goal is to sail around the island of Jamaica as fast as possible, while gathering the goods required: gold for port taxes, powder for naval battles and food to eat while out on the high seas. Each time the pirates meet, they will have to fight to try and steal the contents of each other's holds (and maybe pawn off a chest full of cursed gold at the same time).

And so, hoist up the sails and head towards Port-Royal. May the fastest and richest win!

  Beautiful Game That the Whole Family Can Enjoy
Joseph of Oregon, 12/16/2011
From the beautiful board to the hilarious and detailed pirate cards the artwork alone in this game makes it a delight to play.
Players are racing around the island of Jamaica. But you must feed your crew, pay those port taxes, collect gold, and beat off other pirates trying to collect YOUR gold!
There is no language in this game (beyond the treasure map rule book) so younger players can join the family on this game. There are some very clever and nice mechanics in this game, but it does rely a little more on luck (those dice again) than I like, so that brings it down to four stars for me. But that also evens the playing field for kids and adults.
