Just a quick announcement about an out-of-print game making a comeback this fall. In just over a month, the Days of Wonder gem, Pirate's Cove, will be re-printed. I am very excited about this games because (a) I enjoy it very much, (b) its always stupidly expensive in auctions because everyone knows its a great game that is out-of-print. The game is scheduled to return to North American game stores September 19th - appropriately enough on International Talk Like a Pirate Day.
The game was originally released in 2003. Paul Randles & Daniel Stahl, the designers, are natives of Seattle, WA.
"My Game of the Year 2002!" Bruno Faidutti - "Pirate's Cove is a family boardgame of the kind that were published in the eighties. A little bit of strategy, some bluff and double guessing, lots of player interaction and dice rolls, and, most of all, a strong and convincing theme with components that fit in perfectly. ... It's the kind of game that I could have made or, at the very least, would have liked to."
"One of the best themed games, ever." Tom Vasel from DiceTower Reviews.
"Its fun to be a Pirate!" Daryl Andrews from DeathOfMonopoly.com
