Loot! A card game for pirates and their whole family!

SATurday Graphics is pleased to announce the release of their first card game - Loot!

Loot! is a fast paced card game that is easy enough that any child able to count to five can play it. Yet the strategy behind the game is complex enough to keep even an avid gamer entertained.

The concept of the game is simple. Your group of pirates is working together to plunder a wealthy merchant vessel. The problem is, some scurvy dog has set a bomb burning in the hold! Grab as much loot as you can, but be sure to dive overboard before the ship explodes! Players race against the bomb as well as each other to gather as much loot as possible. You can chicken out at any time and dive overboard escaping with your ill-gotten gains, or you can hang in there and hope to score a little more loot before the bomb explodes leaving you in ruins! Special cards allow you to steal booty from your fellow pirates, lending to the frenetic pace of the game.

The game is designed to be printed on pre-perforated business cards, but anyone with a little skill can assemble a play deck from regular cardstock. The cards are in color for ease of play, but if you're being stingy with your ink, there's no reason you couldn't play with black & white cards.

Best of all, Loot! is almost infintely expandable! We reccomend using 15-20 cards per player. So if you have a big group of pirates, just print another set of cards, shuffle them in and get playing. It's easy to play variant games that way as well. Want multiple bombs? Just add some more and raise the tension of the game. Want an easier game for younger kids? Just pull out all but one bomb, and remove the special cards.

Loot! was successfully playtested with groups of first-graders, high-school students, college students and even senior citizens. It really is a game for all ages. So what are you waiting for? Hoist the Jolly Roger, buckle your swash, and starting grabbing Loot!

Loot! is ONLY available at the EN World Gamestore!
