Pirates of the Spanish Main is the world’s first constructible strategy game. In Pirates of the Spanish Main, players make fleets of ships to sail to different islands looking for treasure. This booty is obtained in one of two ways: commanding your salty dogs to dig it out of the ground or sending your opponent’s ships to Davy Jones’ locker! Either way, game play is fast and fun, and the built-in damage tracking system makes Pirates of the Spanish Main the game of choice of wannabe-buccaneers everywhere. (from the official press release)
Pirates of the Spanish Main will include 230 different collectible pieces, including ships, crew, treasure, and famous (and infamous!) personalities. It will sell in Booster Packs that each contain at least one ship, island, and crew; a small six-sided die; and complete rules for play.
Wizkids officially renamed the entire product line "Pirates of the Cursed Seas Pocketmodel Game" in 2008.
