Sea Shanties is an ever-changing strategy board game where players compete to be the most legendary pirate sailing the Kanvus Sea.
To do so, players must plunder islands for precious Loot, complete challenges to earn song Verses, and pillage other captains in a unique sea-battle mechanic in order collect Lore and the most Renown Points.
You enter a weather-worn building on an island somewhere in the far western reaches of the Kanvus Sea. The small tavern is crowded but the dark, damp air inside, although heavy with must, is a refuge from the sweltering sun currently baking the island’s shore.
The tavern swells, bustling with privateers and buccaneers — a missing eye, arm, or leg seems to be the fee of admittance to join this raucous crowd. The smell of brown enters your nostrils as you order a tankard of warm grog. With every sip, memories from your recent past slowly slip away…
That’s when a stout bard with an aging accordion emerges from the corner. He brushes sand and dust from the instrument’s bellows and as he begins to squeeze its sides, the familiar notes cut through the crowd and dance around your ears. He begins jovially singing a shanty that is well-known among all of the patrons. You slurp down the last drops of your grog and slam your tankard on the table.
While we have not had the opportunity to play the game yet, we have learned a lot about it! The game itself sounds like a blst. The cards have some great art, the board is ever changing, and who does not want to become the best pirate of all?!
