Mega Giveaway Day 125 – Pirate 21 Game

As a kid, blackjack is one of the first card gambling-style games we learned to play. We would play for pennies on our game table made of a giant cable spool. (My folks were clearly way ahead of the trend there!) It was one of many games we played that taught lessons in basic math, statistics as well as memory. I still use those skills when we venture to Vegas as well as when we play other types of card games. Sometimes we come across a game that uses blackjack as a base then puts a spin on it, like Pirate 21 from Indie Boards and Cards.

In this game, you’re trying to get to 21 without going over. But it can’t be as simple as that! Pirates are involved and when you include pirates, nothing is straightforward! There are cards getting swapped, princesses protecting opponents and players getting knocked out of the round. The only straightforward thing is that you can enter to win in our 150+ Days of Giveaways!
