How to Play:
Shuffle the deck and deal six cards to each player. Cards include Merchant Ships, Pirate Ships, Pirate Captains, or The Admiral. For their turn, players can either: draw a new card from the deck, play a Merchant Ship onto the table, try to capture a Merchant Ship by playing a Pirate Ship, or strengthen their hold on an attacked Merchant ship by playing a Pirate Captain. The one Admiral card can defend one of your own Merchant Ships from an attack. Pirate ships have different colors and different values. If you attack a Merchant Ship with a purple Pirate Ship card, you must continue to use purple Pirate Ship Cards to strengthen your attack on that same Merchant Ship in future moves.
How to Win:
When the cards are used up, the player who collected the most gold coins from captured Merchant Ships is the winner.
