In February 1678, after a long career of piracy, Henry Morgan cleverly manages to get himself named Governor of Jamaica, charged with driving out pirates and buccaneers. But rather than driving away the pirates, he invites all his former "associates" and brothers-in-arms to settle there, where they are able to finally enjoy the fruits of their activities with total impunity. Thirty years later, the Great Challenge is organized to celebrate Morgan's nomination in true style: a race around the island, at the end of which the winning team is the one that amasses the greatest quantity of gold in its holds. All aboard!
The Great Challenge comes to life in Jamaica, the highly acclaimed pirate racing board game for two to six players. Playable in under an hour, Jamaica challenges you to outmanoeuvre (and outgun) your rivals as you collect gold and buried pirate treasures on your way around the island. However, pirate races are not like other races, and you will have to contend not only with the trials of the high seas, but also with the cannon fire and boarding parties that other captains send your way.
From the moment you open the treasure chest box and unfurl its gold-laden rulebook, Jamaica immerses you in the pirate's life. Of course, the game goes well beyond its beautiful componentry and will have you and your friends testing out your sea legs, speaking in your best pirate voices, and firing shots across each other's decks all the way to Port Royal.
