Let us bring the fun to you!

Captain's Treasure

You are a band of pirates, hungry for treasure and ready to steal it!

Rumour has it that Captain Bartholomew, a pirate with far too much gold for one person, is currently hiding out on Tortuga.

Capture the Captain, sail across the seas, and find the buried treasure!

Captain’s Treasure is a deluxe portable puzzle experience, lovingly hand-crafted by us.

The game consists of 5 wooden crates that hide fiendishly clever challenges and built-in mechanisms, which you will discover as you play in the comfort of your own home. We won’t be there to run the game for you but we have designed a self-service hint system, so if you do get stuck there will always be help at hand.

And what would a pirate game be without its treasure? On completing the game you’ll be rewarded with a cache of chocolate pirate coins to share among the victors!

Additional details:

  • This game is designed for teams of up to 5 players and is suitable for families (minimum recommended age 12+ when playing with one or more adults; not suitable for children’s parties due to complexity). There are small pieces that could present a choking hazard for babies/toddlers/pets.
  • It can take anywhere between 3 to 5 hours to play, depending on experience, so please make sure you have set aside enough time that you aren’t rushing through – we strongly recommend budgeting an entire afternoon. The story unfolds in two acts, so you can choose to take a break in the middle or simply continue with the puzzles if you’re on a roll.
