Action on the High Seas …

This is a World War I naval action card game. Players simultaneously command the German and British forces as they try to maximize their points while stopping their opponents. While play is straightforward, the strategy centers on how players maximize the use of their dual use Action Cards.

The Kaiser’s Pirates pits 20 of Imperial Germany’s best commerce raiders, both warships and converted civilian ships, in cat-and-mouse action against a multi-national merchant fleet. However, British naval forces are lurking at every turn. The unique game system equally matches the players’ objectives, so everyone is seeking the same outcome. The German ships range from sleek light cruisers to heavily-armed merchant raiders. This game for one, two, three or four players is an easy-to-learn, fun and fast-moving game.

Our tournament will feature four heats of three- or four-player games with eight advancing to single elimination play. The Heats will be quick one-hand affairs, with the elimination rounds playing full, three-hand games. In all likelihood, all winners will advance, but if not, standard WBC MESE tie-breaker rules will apply.

Each player will receive a set of eight new Action cards for use with the game.
