    Description

    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 includes numerous different collectible pieces, including ships, crew, treasure, and famous (and infamous!) personalities. It sells in booster packs that include all materials required for play ("A game in every pack"), which typically consists of two ships, an island, crew, treasure, 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.

    Topps officially shut down WizKids in November 2008, and put the property up for sale. In September 2009 NECA purchased WizKids and its properties from Topps, and began releasing new content for the game HeroClix.
