Video trailer for Pirate's Plunder (1:01)

It was common knowledge from the North American Carolinas to Jamaica that the notorious pirate Blacktooth had been plundering ships and ports from Jamaica to the New World and beyond. Eager to get his hands on a long sought-after treasure map, he will stop at nothing to get what he wants. That is, until an untimely murder has all of Port Royal speculating about who did it. <br />

Captain Samuel Scurvy of the HMS Imperial who had recently arrived in Port Royal was found murdered, hanging on the gallows early one morning in an unscheduled death. Now, two weeks later, a reading of his will is to be held at the Dark Dog Inn, a pirate’s den of iniquity. As the evening progresses one individual meets a tragic end, leaving the rest in attendance as suspects in the crime, with the uncanny possibility of heading to the very gallows that took the life of Captain Scurvy.

NOTE: Pirate's Plunder is a mystery for 26 characters, the largest of our games without getting extra characters. If you will have less guests at your mystery party, some of our other games can accommodate a variable number of characters. For example, The Joker's Wild can accommodate 14-22 characters.
