    In 1801, a fledgling nation with a small navy and an even smaller treasury faced its first real international crisis: piracy, kidnapping, and the privations of the Barbary states of the Mediterranean. To meet this challenge, Thomas Jefferson launched an expedition to punish the Barbary Pirates which would come to be known as the First Barbary War (1801-1805). The exploits of the Navy and Marine Corps in this conflict would be immortalized in the Marine Corps Hymn.

    The Shores of Tripoli tasks two players to recreate this swashbuckling episode from early U.S. history. As the United States, you will pressure Tripolitania and its allies to allow free movement of American commerce or face the consequences. As the Pasha of Tripoli, your aim is to continue the lucrative piracy of the fearsome corsairs while also countering the American threat on land and sea.

    The Shores of Tripoli is a low complexity, card-driven game for two players (with solitaire rules).
