ARRR! There be fun on them tables.

Tim and I finally got to actually play Pirates this weekend. Pirates is a CCG (cusomizable card game) where you build little ships and go treasure hunting. Sound simple enough? It is.
You buy the game in packs just like baseball cards or other CCGs. Inside each pack there are plastic cards with punch out pieces that, when assembled, make ships. Each pack contains 2 ships, an island, gold coins (plastic, not real) and a crew memeber.
I personally had a blast. Even though is seems like a very simple game perhaps that's what makes it so good. There are a ton of rules that get in the way.
This game comes to you from the makers of Heroclicks and Mageknight.
