Just because you love pirates doesn’t mean you have to play a bad Pirates of the Caribbean game… Check out BoardGamePrices’ best pirate games!
Even though Johnny Depp’s done dressing up like a drunk wizard every two years for a Pirates of the Caribbean movie, pirate games are still selling like hot cakes, and to tons of demographics as well.
Whether you’re looking for an exciting board game to play with friends, or a gift for a themed birthday party, pirate games are pretty widely available in the board game world. Please, please, please don’t think you have to stroll down to Target and pick up a Pirates of the Caribbean board game just because… Here are a couple of BoardGamePrices’ best pirate games. See any you like? (Insert obligatory “arrrr!” here.)
Pirate’s Cove – This pirate game sends up to five players out to adventure on the high seas, battling and railing against each other to be the most fearsome pirate of them all.
While not only giving players the feel of a pirate game, Pirate’s Cove makes players actually play like pirates, fighting their way through battles and plundering their way to gold, fame, and of course, a drink at the tavern (No drunk Johnny Depp necessary).
Jamaica – Pirate games take on a strategic and more intellectual twist in Jamaica, where players take a journey around the island collecting gold like a true pirate.
Jamaica’s game play is fun, fast paced, and strategic, whether you’re planning out your ship’s path through the seas, or deciding which detours for treasure really catch your eye.
