This is a medium-light game with quick turns, a bit of take-that, and just the right amount of luck. The goal is to make, and keep, the most victory points.
Steer your sailing ship as the “wind” roll allows, to be the first to discover the landmarks on the board.
Draw chits for treasure and actions, but only if you have space on your hand. To free that space, bury your treasure along with booby-traps to keep it safe.
Steal other players’ chits with your pirate ship, by attacking them, or digging their treasure out.
To win, be the player with the most points, in hand or safely buried under your Xs.

Avast ye!

Really cool to see this

My brother used to have an old 80s pirate game called buccaneers. You had to load up your little plastic ships with little bits of treasure and try not to lose it when sailing home to your bay.

I really like your idea though of digging up buried treasure

The better way would be...

To start a BLOG on BGDF.com and SHARE that link over at Board Game Geek! We value our community and are always trying to get more content of value and contributors to the website.

(Note: there are a LOT of "haters" hanging out on BGG... Our community is much more open to helping out other Designers... Trust me I say this from first hand experience...)

I was going to moderate the URL back to BGG ... Because quite frankly they have enough users and fund enough monies to pay for their site. We on the other hand have a smaller but more friendly community... And I'm positive we'd be glad to follow your BLOG.

But consider it being on BGDF.com and linking to it on BGG...! Best of luck(!?) with your game... Just wanted to ADD that there are A LOT of game called "Buccaneers"... You might want to find a better name. Or at least one that has been used LESS OFTEN. Cheers!

Thank you!

Thanks for all your advice...!
I really just created the WIP to catch eyes. I'll definitely consider a blog, though I'm not the most active - I usually just post the first, and reply to comments, but very (very) rarely do I make a new entry... :P
I agree on the friendliness of this community!! I really need to dedicate some time to exploring this site. It has invaluable resources, and I should make more use of them!!

And yes... I'm aware of the name... It's so conflicting to me because even the theme is not my favorite, but the mechanics marry so well with it! :P
But to be fair, there are 10 entries in BGG with "buccaneers", but 3 pages of them for "pirates", so of an unimaginative name, it's not the worse I could've chosen... ;)
I'm sure as this progresses, at some point a perfect name will arrive...

Thanks again, and I promise I'll make a conscious effort to be more active here... :)

That's a brilliant game. My dad's set is from the 1960s.

Definitely interested in checking out this other buccaneer themed game. :)
