ToysBulletin.com reviews another thought provoking game from R&R Games, Inc.
Plunder is a treasure stealing deduction game for 2-6 players distributed by R&R Games and designed by Jonathan Franklin. The game includes 36 dry erase crew cards, 54 clue cards, 18 map cards (6 each of island, marker and trap cards) , a treasure chest, 6 dry erase pens and 6 dry erase solution grids.
To set things up, players first choose to be one of 6 unique pirates. Each pirate receives a dry erase pen, along with the corresponding dry erase solution grid and crew cards (matching the number of players in the game). Next, the treasure chest is placed in the center of the table, with an open lid. Deal 3 map cards to each player, one each of island, marker and trap cards. Each player should look at their map cards as these cards indicate the specific hidden location of their pirate treasure. Don’t show anyone your cards-“Properly Warned Ya Be Says I” or you’ll be walking the plank! The remaining unused map cards are taken out of the game, while the map cards that were dealt out are turned face down until the scoring phase at the end of the game.
