Scuttle! is a card game for 1-5 valiant pirates, suitable for players as young as 6. Based on the classic game Cuttle (believed to be the precursor to Magic: The Gathering), Scuttle! has been infused with the drama of the high seas thanks to creative updated rules by Peter C. Hayward. With gorgeous, adventurous art by Kelly Jo, Scuttle! is fun for the whole family.

In this fast-playing card game, players scheme, battle and steal to be the first to collect 21 doubloons. Each turn either draw a card or play a card – cards can be played as either treasure or as an action. Do you want to draw 2 cards, or steal the treasure chest your opponent just played? Or would you rather wipe the board…knowing that your booty is protected!

Make use of monkeys, rodent-powered cannons, sneaky rats and loyal parrots to protect your treasure from the other pirates. The waters are treacherous, so take what you can, and give nothing back. But be warned – dead men tell no tales!

Ages 6 and up

1-5 players
