Pirate Board Game

I periodically Google myself (Felix Cartagena) to see if there are any slanderous reports that need to be addressed. I came across a pirate board game based on actual events in the city of Cartagena in Columbia when it was truly a Pirates of the Caribbean town. See below:

The game recalls the legendary 1672 escape of a large group of pirates from the dreaded fortress of Cartagena. Each player has a crew of 6 fugitives which he tries to hurry through the long and tortuous underground passage that connects the fortress to the waterfront. But the task is not easy, because to move pirates forward in the passage you must play appropriate cards, of which you only have a few, while to replenish your cards, you must move pirates backward again.... To balance these conflicting needs requires good timing and judgement. The first player who succeeds in bringing his 6 pirates to the end of the passage and aboard a waiting sloop wins the game.

The rules of the game are simple and easy to learn, and they offer two ways of playing: a faster way that gives more scope to luck, and a tactical way what requires more skill. Players can choose which they like best.

Interesting game.

I have Pirate monopoly & pirate dice. I have also looked at some other games but I haven't seen this one before.


Has anyone purchased and played this game?

Is it worth the $ ?
