DESCRIPTION

The game recalls the legendary 1672 escape of a large group of pirates from the dreaded fortress of Cartagena.

Each player has a crew of 6 fugitives which he tries to hurry through the long and tortuous underground passage that connects the fortress to the waterfront. But the task is not easy, because to move pirates forward in the passage you must play appropriate cars, you must move pirates backward again... to balance these conflicting needs requires good timing and judgment.

First player who succeeds in bring his 6 pirates to the end of the passage and aboard a waiting sloop wins the game. The rules of the game are simple and easy to learn, and they offer two ways of playing: a faster way that give more scope to luck and a tactical way that requires more skill. Players can choose which way they like best.
