Even the mightiest pirates must one day retire from the life of plunder. But what comes afterwards? Well, on the five peninsulas of Grog Island, they invest their loot into rock-solid businesses. In this unique dice-auction game, you try to get your hands on promising pirate investments, such as peg-leg shops, figurehead studios, voodoo doll workshops, or the "Grog Hole," the island's notorious pub. However, the auctions are not just about placing the highest bid. Passing at just the right moment can be also very re-warding, because only then will you find the time to snatch the desired goods and trade with the landing merchant ships. With its innovative use of dice and its engaging game-play, Grog Island is a tactical treat for anyone looking for an unusual gaming experience.
