'Buccaneer' Board Game

'Buccaneer' Board Game


John Sands (1950 edition)

OUT OF STOCK. Different editions of this product can, if available, be located using the ‘product search’ tool. Alternatively, please visit our Not Catalogued page or contact us directly using your preferred method of communication.


'BUCCANEER' BOARD GAME: The idea of the game is to collect treasure to a total value of 20 points, made up by adding the value of the last cargo brought to the player's Home Port to that of any treasure already there. A player collects treasure by sailing his ship from his Home Port to visit Treasure Home, where the draw of a chance card may give him treasure or crew, or to another Port for trading or to attack another ship.

This game is exceptionally rare - in fact, it is the only John Sands (Australian) edition of this game that we have ever seen. It is complete and in excellent condition throughout. The box is clean, the colours are vibrant and every corner is completely intact without any use of sellotape. The ships, their masts and all sails are in very good, clean condition. The various pieces of treasure are in excellent condition and Treasure Island presents itself very nicely indeed. Each and every card is in brilliant condition and this example includes a full compliment of blank spare cards. The folding game board is in fantastic condition. The folding joints on the back of the board have been reinforced and the playing surface is immaculte.

This really is an extremely rare version of an enduring board game classic that will compliment any vintage board game collection.

For 2 - 6 players.
