This year, N was insistent on giving it a go once again, and though we were a little reluctant, we set aside some time and went for it, and you know what? It turns out we love this game. Interestingly enough, what makes it so complicated also makes it more interesting. There’s a good lesson in life somewhere in there. Most games are quick and easy, but they burn out fast. You play them and you’re done. Pirate King requires more setup and engagement, but it’s a really interesting game, filled with strategy and planning. It’s a lot like Monopoly, and it seems like you could play it forever.
We played for hours, and over the course of a few days, and the board is still setup and waiting for us to finish the game. You have to love that.
Until the next time, thanks for reading.
