Is this the game I'm thinking of Tue, 31 August 2004 00:08
Hello. About 30 years ago I played a game that involved cards, treasure and ports. There were red and black cards .. they determined sailing and fighting strength, the object was to sail to owned and unowned ports and steal treasure .. little bars of gold, pearls, rum etc. You then needed to sail to your home port and secure them. Pirates Cove sounds similar .. and looks very well set out. The game I am thinking of holds special memories, and I've looked for it in Australia on and off for years. Any suggestions????

Garry,

While there may be similarities, Pirate's Cove is not the game you are thinking of, as it was designed by two Americans in the past 4 years. It's possible they were inspired by the game you are thinking of, but I don't know if this is true or not.

I do think you will enjoy Pirate's Cove if you get the chance to play it though.

The game you're looking for is Waddingtons old "Buccaneer" also released as "Trade Winds". It was a great little game which is unfortunately now out of print and much sought after on ebay.

Pirate's Cove definitely has a similar feel and I think you'd enjoy it. The main difference imo is the dice. Buccaneer used cards which was an unusual and cool game mechanic.

hope this helps
