You’ll be counting your booty and having a blast in no time. (

What kind of things can you say when you're a pirate? Well, we went right to the source. Scallywags designer, and possible-pirate Chevee Dodd has this to say about the game: 

I have no clue what he said, but I like it!

  2. YARRRR!!! That booty be mine, for I've sailed the seven seas lookin' for that dastardly pirate Dead-Eye Dodd. He did me wrong by not shaking my hook at GenCon and I need to get me revenge by getting his game and sharing it with my friends!

  3. Not since Jennifer Lopez has a finer booty been seen. Me thinks I must claim this fer me own...but I wont be burying it from them other nasty scoundrels but will be sharing it with them along with a bottle rum. As we play and laugh and cheer...and then later I send them all to Davy Jones Locker.....arrrrrr

  4. A pirate walks into a bar, swaggers over to the barkeep and demands a glass of rum.

    And so the bartender starts pouring while sizing up the newcomer. The pirate has every classic appearance of a pirate - from the eye patch and parrot to the tattoos and peg leg. But there was one thing out of place. There was a steering wheel sticking out of the pirate's pants.

    This pirate is in full pirate gear. Gold earrings, patch over the eye, a big filthy white blouse covering his swarthy chest, tattoos everywhere, all of it. But protruding from his pirate trousers is the unmistakable form of a steering wheel.

    So the bartender decides to ask, "So, what's up with the steering wheel?"

    And the pirate turns back and fixes him with a beady glare from his lone eye. "Arrr, I don't know, but it's drivin' me nuts!"

  5. All hands on deck, prepare to board! I've me eye set on a hearty take and it be these Scallywags! Thar it be, ours fer the takin'! Ain't no lily-livered, son of a Biscuit Eater gonna get in our way! So raise tha Jolly Roger, and prepare ye for some swashbucklin'! Aye, and when we be returnin' with our spoils, we'll raise a bottle of grog and sing of our glory!
