About the game:
Guns or Treasure is a speedy game of buccaneering and bluffing! It has a beautiful shipbuilding aesthetic, excellent replayability and a wide demographic appeal. Throw it in a purse to entertain your kids or carry it in your pocket to add some rowdy fun to pub time with the guys.
Plunge into a world of colorful pirate captains bluffing and battling their way to capture the most loot. The game offers a satisfying shipbuilding experience, rapid rounds of maritime marauding, and Captains whose special abilities can sway the tide of any given battle.
Each player secretly builds their ships by laying down 10 cards. Cards add guns, treasure, or a bomb to your ships. The players then take turns marauding other players’ ships or retreating to safety. Marauding is the key to victory, since a successful attack means you score the treasure from both ships, but beware! Their ships may be well-equipped with guns or rigged with a bomb! The player with the most treasure wins.
- Secretly build your ships by adding guns, treasure, or bombs.
- Attack rival ships to steal treasure. But beware! They may have more guns – or even a bomb!
- Whoever captures the most treasure wins!
