Last year, I posted about the Kickstarter Campaign to bring Pirates War to mobile. Well the campaign was successful and the game is out. (It has been out for a while, but I am finally getting around to posting on it. 🙂 )
This is a fun game. So how do you play?
The game mechanics are very similar to those of Monopoly. You will play about 2 other players, traveling through the islands of Tiakoke acquiring lands, upgrading them, and collecting taxes from your territories. There are a set number of turns each game and yes you collect money when you pass Start (or GO).
Since this is a pirate game, you will need a ship and crew. As you play and earn gems and gold, you can purchase different pirates, ships, and captains. Each of course have their own unique abilities. You can have up to 5 crew members. You will want to put together the strongest crew to help you win each game. Right now there are over 80 different pirates currently in the game. You can have up to 5 different crews.
I found the game very easy to figure out and had a good crew in no time. This is a free game and there are many ways to earn gems and gold; there is of course IAPs too.
The game features a Single Player, Casual Multiplayer, Friends, and Ranked Multiplayer mode. There are daily quests, and a free chest every four hours.
Each game will only take a few minutes to play. Right now I am trying to understand and use the various skills each of the crew bring with them. Using their unique skills can definitely help you win the game.
Overall the game is fun to play and I find myself picking it up to play a quick game a few hours at work.
So if you want a board game with collectible cards, die, and pirates, then Pirates War the Dice King shoul be downloaded today.
