A fun, festive game with an international feel, allowing players to explore their inner pirate.
In the bustling pirate port of Salty Cove, Captain Barnacle Bones was renowned for his audacious exploits on the high seas. But Barnacle had a secret, a hidden treasure chest of humour in his heart that was just as valuable as his ill-gotten loot. He was famous for a saying that made his crew chuckle and his adversaries scratch their heads: “Our flag means minor inconvenience.”
You see, Captain Barnacle had a flag like no other pirate. Instead of the menacing skull and crossbones, his flag displayed a crossed cutlass and feather duster. It wasn’t long before his ship, “The Laughing Galleon,” was known far and wide for its hilariously mild approach to piracy.
One sunny morning, Captain Barnacle’s lookout spotted a rival pirate ship on the horizon. The dreaded Captain Blackbeard and his crew of menacing marauders were headed straight for them.
“Captain, Captain Blackbeard approaches!” yelled the lookout.
Captain Barnacle scrambled to the deck and bellowed, “Man the tickle cannons!”
The crew leaped into action, firing confetti and shooting water pistols at the approaching ship. Captain Blackbeard’s crew was perplexed, dodging streams of water and colourful paper instead of cannonballs and grapeshot.
“We’ve been tricked!” roared Captain Blackbeard, his eyes narrowing in suspicion. “Full sail ahead, mateys! We’ll give ‘em a routing they won’t soon forget!”
But as Captain Blackbeard’s ship drew nearer, he found that his fearsome pirates were instead getting drenched by a seemingly endless supply of water balloons launched from the Laughing Galleon.
Meanwhile, Captain Barnacle, standing at the ship’s wheel with a feather duster in one hand and a rubber chicken in the other, looked fearless. His methods might be unconventional, but he had never lost a battle yet…
If you have played one of my previous Christmas games:
The previous deck of cards is still here, but you can ignore this
There is totally no need to have any knowledge of previous games - but if you want to bring a previous character in, that is fine.
Um, hope I have covered everything, but do ask questions!
