Cartagena (2nd edition):
The game represents the famous 1672 pirate-led jailbreak from the fortress of Cartagena. It is said that a game celebrating the great escape became popular in the pirate coves of the Caribbean. Each player has a group of 6 pirates and his objective is to have all 6 escape through the tortuous underground passage that connects the fortress to the port, where a sloop is waiting for them.
- Choose what part of the story to play: The basic-game reproduces only the first part of the jailbreak, the escape from the fortress to the sloop; but you may also choose to play the second part through the island of Tortuga or the whole story as well. You can also shorten or stretch the game, varying the number of board segments and/or pirates.
- Then, you can try the Morgan version: It’s an alternative way of recharging cards, which will force you to explore completely new strategies.
- Finally, you can land to the Black Magic Woman system: Things can change here. Whatever scenario and version you choose, everything becomes magical and each card acquires a special and intriguing power. It’s up to you to decide when and where you use them.
8 board segments, a deck of 102 cards, 1 sloop board in good shape, 1 sloop board half flooded, 1 jail board, 1 pirate cove board, 30 pirates, 8 treasure chest-tiles.
