Description

Although all players get the same six cards, chances are they played different cards during the preceding voyage which means everyone is now holding different hands. Just in case anyone else is in this state, I figured I would ask here: where would you guys recommend I go to find something that would work for this? Ten years later, Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest celebrates the foundations of the original design with a revised and expanded edition that includes all-new art, 40 characters per player, a reputation system to resolve tiebreakers, deluxe loot tokens, a robust solo mode, and much more. With its awkward art and abstracted gameplay, Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest doesn’t do much justice to its jolly pirate theme.

On the flip side, the lowest reputation gives the most bonus money, but reducing it further costs you money. But will that mess with your other plans of what you could gain from playing a different card first?However Pilferer doesn’t gain coins, use abilities or gain loot tokens, it simply removes a loot from the day’s findings.

That is often where most of the fun in the game is: The intricacies of predicting the plays of others and doing one’s best to undermine it. Ten years later, Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest celebrates the foundations of the original design with a revised and expanded edition that includes all-new art, 40 characters per player, a reputation system to resolve tiebreakers, deluxe loot tokens, a robust solo mode, and much more. They also stash treasure away for safety in their treasure chest scorer and discards characters, coins and loot tokens from their ship. As an admiral, you command a vast and varied crew…but so do your rivals sailing other ships in the pirate fleet. I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t work, but whether it works well is another question entirely :-).And yet, despite all players in Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest playing each round with the exact same cards, the games are wildly thought-provoking, simply intelligent, and downright fun. With two players, there’s a dummy rank 20 card that punishes low play by stealing a loot token if both players have cards that rank below it. In the below example, I’d get the chest, the Pilferer would throw the amulet away and the Automa would get the relic. This progressive asymmetry becomes more and more pronounced with each round as you never play all your cards during a round. The prospect of having to manage two solitaire opponents might sound daunting but rest assured it is not, as this is a fairly straightforward solo mode in terms of rules overhead.

It’s double-sided, printed with player aids and everything is laid out in a neat and effective manner to help facilitate the gameplay. That might sound like an odd thing to say, but I think two is the weakest player count for the game. It’s one of the few games outside of the social deduction genre which gets better and more interesting with higher player numbers. The general flow of the game is that each day of a voyage players simultaneously select a character card from their hand to play. Those pirates were based in a world of Libertalia, and they did plunder the seven seas, looking for treasure.If you like hand-management games, we think you will enjoy sneakily managing your crew in Libertalia: Winds of Galecrest! Like the Automa abilities, the loot tokens will generally give Automa a lot of money (not as much on the stormy side) as it will always choose the money option (rather than saving a character with a hook or discarding a character with a saber).
