Redhook's Revenge is a Pirate-based board game and trivia. Choose your pirate captain and then play against two other human or computer controlled players. Then roll the dice and travel the designed number of spaces over the seaways. Your objective is to reach the home port with as much booty as possible, the player with the most wins. In addition to this however, each player has a complete inventory of items. Food and Water is required to sail properly without penalty, maps can be used to hunt for buried treasure, bales for repairs, spare canvas, a compass... a variety of items with different effects. As you travel around the seas of the Caribbean, some squares will bring about good fortune and additional supplies, other times it will be bad luck and the occasional case of scurvy.
When you land on a spot that is near a town or on the position as another player; there's the option to engage in cannon-to-cannon combat with the target. Successful combat (determined by dice rolls) will net you additional booty (as well as the spot), unsuccessful combat comes with penalties and repairs on your ship.
The game is full of trivia multiple choice questions on pirate books, movies and actors as well as facts on the geography and history of the Caribbean.
This is a pirate board game. Throw with the dice, you can answer pirate questions or get money to buy food for the crew, etc. Good graphics and music!
Redhook's Revenge is a fun and educational game of life on the Caribbean seas of yore. Billed as "pirate educational board game," Redhook's Revenge fulfills every word in its claim: it reasonably simulates a pirate's life (sail, dig for treasure, fight other ships, and plunder towns) using attractive board-game format. Dice throws dictate how many 'spaces' on the sea your ship can move, and you must answer trivia questions from time to time to proceed. In short, the game combines classic Treasure Island with the best elements of Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit into a wholly engrossing and addictive experience that fans of pirate history would not want to miss. Highly recommended, especially to budding historian(s) in your house. Best of all, ImagiSOFT released this formerly shareware game into the public domain in 2004.
