Captain’s log is an adventure game where you will be in charge of a ship from the colonial period and you will compete against other players to become the most famous captain of all. The game starts with the election of your ship. You will have a choice between a swift and agile but fragile ship; a well-balanced ship, if you want to play it safe; and a heavy and slow but strong ship. With your ship, you will try to become the most famous and well-known captain of all seven seas and get a place in history.
To improve your ship you will be able to trade in the market to grow your crew, improve your weapons and load capacity, enrol on a mission and get a reward, explore the ocean to search for treasures, fight against or with others, and above all acquire wealth.
At the end of the day, it’s a sandbox board game, so you set the limits or the board does. Throughout the game, you will make contact with other ships commanded by your friends (although we know in a board game is better not to rely on friendships). While exploring the map, you will start catching sight of other ships belonging to the different nations in the game. These are Spain, Holland, France, or England, and pirates and corsairs. During the game, you will be able to decide if you want to side with any of these nations which will give you a variety of perks. However, nothing in this life comes for free and your acts might take you to make enemies of some other nations which will make their ships come after yours and try to sink you into the ocean. Can you be a pirate and become another nation’s ally?
