Product Description

Sea of Clouds Card Game

In Sea of Clouds, as captain of a flying pirate ship, recruit a cutthroat crew, collect relics and unearth the best rum by gathering shares of Loot. Then send your pirates aboard enemy ships to plunder their treasure!
 
In each round of the game, players take turns divvying up shares of Loot to gain Rum, Relics, Objects, and Pirates. In some rounds, when ships are flying close together, they will also clash in a Boarding action, using the effects of any Pirates they picked up to gain Doubloons and plunder Loot.
 
On your turn, take the first of the three shares of Loot on the table, and look at it secretly. You must decide to either take all the cards in the Share then add the top card from the deck face-down to this Loot space, or to leave the Share and look at the next one. If you choose to do the latter, add the top card from the deck to the Share you declined (or a Doubloon, if there's already three cards), thus increasing its value for the next player. If no shares interest you, blindly take the top card of the deck.
 
The card backs give you a hint about what’s in the next Shares: Pirates to board other ships, legendary Relics to collect, Rum to be scored at the end of the game, and Items with permanent, immediate, or secret effects.
 
Every 4 or 5 rounds (depending on the number of players), Boarding action will occur! Add the strength of your Captain and your Pirates, apply any bonuses or penalties, and face your two neighbors! For each victory, your Pirates will gain Doubloons or steal some Loot! After the fight, all Pirates are discarded.
 
The game ends after 12 (or 15) rounds. Players then add the value of their Doubloons and their Loot cards to determine who’s the winner.

Customer Reviews

Sea of Clouds is as simple as, 'Do I want it?' and 'Am I willing to risk advantaging the next player to see if there's something better on offer?' Yes or no, take it or leave it. This game is gratifying, it's short, it's simple, you have options and you are always gaining; it is also not without its own level of light strategy, defined by how the cards are played but with a little bit of deduction and probability you can formulate plans and work a situation that almost always has the potential to be advantageous. Unlike most card games, you aren't stuck with the cards in front of you, but sometimes it's better to bite that bullet and fuel your foes with more. Will greed be your demise?
