Take command of one of the pirate's ships and try to get to Skeleton Island first to dig up the treasure, and then get it back to your own island to claim it forever. But beware, five other pirates have the same idea as you, and even if you get the treasure, you might not be able to hang onto it.

Pirates Treasure is an exciting game of skill for young children. Using toy pirate ships, batons and thrown dice for cannon balls, the game is both fast and fun. Cap'n Rumblebelly's fabulous buried horde of chocolate money is at stake, may the best buccaneer win.
