  • Can I begin my turn by playing a Black Card?
    Absolutely! During your turn, you are able to perform 3 different actions (Placing Cards on your Island, Rearranging Cards, and Playing Black Cards) in WHATEVER ORDER YOU CHOOSE! So you can start with ANY action you’d like.
  • If I have a Wild Card in my hand, do I have to use it?
    No way! You can hang on to that WILD card and use it whenever it’s best.
  • Can I move a WILD Card that’s on my island to a different spot later?
    YES! You can rearrange any of the cards on your island at any point during the game (but only during your turn, of course!)
  • If I have a card in my hand that could technically be placed on my island if I rearranged some things, do I have to do that?
    Nope! You are never required to place any card on your island that would require you to rearrange cards that are already there (But you CAN if you want to!)
  • If I rearrange some cards on my island and am left with an incomplete card group, what do I do?
    Just move the incomplete card group back into your hand.
  • If my opponent steals or blows up one of my cards and therefore leaves an incomplete card group on my island, what do I do?
    Just move the incomplete card group back into your hand. Do that immediately (you do not wait until your turn to put them back into your hand).
  • When ending my turn, can I draw one card from the draw pile and one card from the face up cards?
    No. You need to choose EITHER the 2 face-up cards or the top 2 cards in the Draw Pile, but NOT one of each!
  • Can I block a Black Card’s action with a card that’s on my island?
    Nice try, but no. You can only block Black Card Actions with cards from your HAND.
  • If I’m playing a 4-player game and someone plays a Captain, Ship, or Elixir of Life, do all other opponents need to play their matching color card in order to block the Black Card’s action?
    Nope! That would be overkill, don’t you think!?! Only 1 Color Card is required to block a Black Card’s action.
  • Can I use a WILD card to block a Pirate attack?
    No way! Pirates are very particular! The only way to block a pirate attack is by giving them the exact thing they want by placing THEIR matching color card ion top of them in the Discard Pile.
  • What if the score is tied at the end of the game?
    If two or more players tie for the win at the end of the game, the player with the most Rainbow Pirates on their island is the winner! Although rare, if there is still a tie, then the player with the most color cards on their island is the winner! Although rarest of all, if there is STILL a tie, then you BOTH are winners!!
  • I went out, but my opponent still has more points then I do! Do I still win?
    That’s rough, and no. You do not. If you go out, then you are awarded 5 Bonus Treasure Points (hooray!), but if you opponent still has more total points, then they are crowned the WINNER (sorry!).
  • If someone goes out, can the other players still play the cards in their hand?
    No. If someone goes out, the game ends IMMEDIATELY! However, if the game ends by running out of Draw Cards (both the Draw Pile AND the 2 Face-up Cards are gone) then each player gets to place any cards they can from their hand onto their island. This includes placing Black Cards on your island (in groups of 3+ of course!) but you cannot play them as pirate actions!
  • If I play all the cards in my hand, is that considered “Going Out”?
    If, and only IF you have 2 full Rainbows on your island at that time. Otherwise, you would simply draw 2 cards as usual and the game continues.
