The game itself goes together very quickly (only 19 pages), under 15 minutes. The microfigs look very nice with lots of detail. Once setup, each new game takes only a minute to get ready for (popping the player tiles off the dice). In order to get the most fun out of this game it is strongly recommended to have 3 or 4 players. If your going to have only 2 players, have each player pick two colors. Much more fun that way.
You start out with a blank dice, except for one side that has the skull and cross bones (The Pirate Captain). Roll the dice, if you get the Pirate Captain you can either move back two, or another player moves forward one. If you roll a side with an empty spot, you can pick a another players tile to put on it. The next time that side is rolled that player has to move one spot. You can end up with your color on a single side more than once. If your color comes up when you roll you don't have to move.
Over all, a fast paced game that's never the same.
