Days of Wonder releases Pirate's Cove - Buccaneering Boardgame of the high seas!
Players battle each other and Legendary Pirates
for the rights to plunder for gold, treasure and fame.
Los Altos, CA; Paris, France - October 6, 2003 - Days of Wonder, Inc. announced the upcoming release of Pirate's Cove, a new boardgame of swashbuckling and adventure designed by American game authors, the late Paul Randles, and Daniel Stahl.
Players sail the islands surrounding Pirate's Cove, hoping to become the most famed and feared pirate in all the 7 seas. To do so they must navigate shrewdly, fight recklessly and plunder mercilessly. Each of the islands is inhabited with experienced craftsmen who can help strengthen their ship, enabling them to sail faster, battle harder and carry more treasure. However, they must first successfully battle and defeat any enemy pirates who visit that island.
Pirate's Cove is the second in Days of Wonder's series of big format board games and like Mystery of the Abbey, it features extraordinary illustrations and top-notch components.
"Days of Wonder has taken a rich, immersive game and added their special production values to create a game that screams with flavor", says co-author Daniel Stahl. "Pirate's Cove has completely come alive as a fun and exciting family game that is guaranteed to get an 'Argh' out of anyone."
Pirate's Cove is for 3 to 5 players and is easy to learn for any one 8 years and older. Average game length is between 60 and 90 minutes. Pirate's Cove is currently available in English and French editions in Europe and will be available in North America by October 27th. You will find it at hobby game retail stores, online game retailers, and from the Days of Wonder Online store at www.daysofwonder.com. Suggested retail price is US $49.95.
