Questions about Gameplay
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 play it?
No way! If you don't want to place a WILD card, you don't have to. You just hang on to that WILD and use it whenever your heart tells you to!
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 numbered color card in my hand that I can technically place on my island if I rearrange some things, do I have to do that?
Nope! You are never required to place any card on your island if that would require you to rearrange cards that are already there (But you CAN! If you want to. But you don’t have 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?
Nopedy-Nope-Nope-Nope! You need to choose EITHER the 2 Face-Up Cards OR the top 2 cards in the Draw Pile, but NOT one of each! (but remember, pirates are natural rebels...so if you want to do things differently, just create your own house rules! They're really just guidelines anyway.)
Blocking Black Cards
Can I use a WILD Card to block a Pirate attack?
If I’m playing a 4-player game & 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?
Can I block a Black Card’s action with a card that’s on my island?
Ending the Game & Winning
If I play all the cards in my hand, is that considered “Going Out”?
If someone goes out, can the other players still play the cards in their hand?
I went out, but my opponent still has more points than I do! Do I still win?
What if the score is tied at the end of the game?
