Publisher's Game Description: We've talked about making a pirate-themed game for years but wanted to wait until the right one came along. From the moment we first played Loot, we knew we found our buried treasure! Renown game inventor Reiner Knizia has created a highly clever card game that is at once simple to learn and fast to play, while engaging those looking for strategic challenge. We're particularly fond of the team play version, where you and a partner get to look at each other's cards and conspire moves. We find that the game's even more fun when everyone talks in pirate accents when playing. Give it at try and you'll be hooked!

BGG Joe Schimdt:"Great game. Quick, light play with some strategy and very young kids can play. The adults, gamers and non-gamers alike, AND my young nephews and nieces loved it. Worth it's weight in gold just because of that. And don't overlook the team-play rules, they add to the game."
BGG Barry Wonson:"Pure fun filler. Great game to play with the family. We have played this many times in the short time we have had it and each one has been thoroughly enjoyable. Don't expect anything deep and meaningful here, just go with the flow and have a laugh. "
BGG Jay Christensen:"Quick, easy to learn, trick taking game. Fun, absolutely. Hence the high rating. At this point would always enjoy playing. Great filler. Could easily play many games in a row."
BGG Joseph Ellis:"Wonderfully short, sweet, simple, and fun. Manages to bring the same kind of choices found in most eurogames to a very simple and streamlined cardgame."
How To Play:Yo-Ho-Ho and a Barrel of Fun! Set sail for an exciting adventure of strategy and skullduggery in this captivating card game. Storm your opponents' merchant ships and seize valuable treasure. But watch your back, matey - plundering pirates are out to capture your ships as well! The player with the most loot rules the high seas.
BGG Jim Boudro:"I know it is not much of a gamer's game. But for a fun, screwball party game, it does the trick quite well. Easy to pick up and the game time is relatively short."
BGG David Bodtcher:"This is a great game for beginners. I got my non-gamer sister and her husband (who would tease me about playing board games, by the way) wanting to buy this game. I myself, who like heavier and strategic games, also enjoy this game as a light card game that is good at breaking the ice."
BGG Chris Schenck:"Upgraded this game from a rating of 7 to a rating of 8 (upon 10), based on the 6-player game. Team play GREATLY increases the strategic and tactical options in the game. The game truly shines with 6 players, based on the team rules. I'll always recommend and play this game for 6 players. The difference between solo and team play is significant. Team play really lets the game shine."
