Avast ye pirates! Gather your crews and set sail for adventure on the high seas in Rum & Bones!
Based on online MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) style games, Rum & Bones has 2-6 players taking control of legendary pirate heroes, each with unique powers and abilities, as their crews fight over Davy Jones' legendary treasure!
Players will each control up to five heroes at any time, moving them across the game board in an attempt to destroy various key features across their opponents ship. Victory is obtained by destroying enough of these features. Your heroes are not alone, however, as your crew also consists of deckhands and bosuns who, while not controlled by the player, will work on a simple AI to wreck havoc on the enemy!
Of course, what would pirates be without plunder? And in Rum & Bones the most sought after treasure are Davy Jones' mythical pieces of eight! Players will amass these powerful coins during gameplay to unleash devastating abilities and attacks from their Heroes, crushing all enemies before them until only they remain!
Contents: 70 highly-detailed plastic miniatures, 20 miniture bases, 8 six-sided dice, 10 Hero cards, 2 Sea Creatures cards, 60 Tide cards, 2 Ship boards, 15 tiles, 113 tokens, 1 rule book

An absolute hoot!
Once you realise that your crew are worthless swabs, whose only real purpose is to soak up the damage, dished out by the opposing heroes, it becomes a Somme like, resource management romp.
Zombies versus Pirates? What's not to love?
a good simple game, with lots of flavour
