Libertalia is a fantastic game. Quick, easy to pick up, a lot of depth, and enough variable that you wont see everything the game has to offer in the first play. Everyone has the same hand of pirate crew members, You simultaneaously select one, put the pirates on the ship, and depending on rank, players get ordered pick of the available treasure. Each card also has good and bad effects in addition to the rank, and depending on when you play it.
