Schatz Rabatz

WHo is heir to Käpt’n Raffzahn?


Old pirate captain Käpt’n Raffzahn want to leave his ship to the pirate who will be first to assemble his ship from four ship part tiles.

Stacks with four different parts of a ship, face-down images, „Jack Boards“, and treasures in eight shapes and five colors are set ready on the table. On a signal all start to play simultaneously and take one treasure at a time and put it into the chest, whereby they try to fill the chest in an optimum way. If you are done or the timer has run out you put the lid on the chest, it must shut correctly and lie flat on the chest. If a gap is visible you must take out treasures from the chest until the lid closes properly, and you are not allowed to rearrange treasures in the chest. Then the top “Jack Board”  is turned over. Each player in turn now empties his chest and compares the treasures he collected to the treasured depicted on the Jack Board. Every treasure that is identical in color and shape to a treasure pictured on the board must be discarded; for control purposes you are allowed to place a treasure on the image on the board. When all have checked their treasures the player who has most treasures left may take a tile from one of the ship part stacks for his pirate ship. Whoever has completed his ship first, wins.

A bit hectic, a bit stressful and busy, but lots of fun - and lots of diligence and a bit of luck are necessary, because only after collecting the treasure you will find out which treasures go to Pirate Jack as reward for his services, unless you play the variant in which the Jack Board is revealed beforehand and you try to avoid the treasured pictured on it.
