In the game, the players try to gather the best baby pirate crew. All players start with 2 crew members and recruit additional members in the course of the game. Every round a new fast auction takes place where you have to keep on bidding to stay in the round. The winner selects one of the available crew members and discards the rest. When the deck runs out, the game ends and the players score points based on the set they collected.
The game also contains a bonus game that is playable starting from 5 years old. This way the little pirates can also join in if they want to play the game.
