Landlubbers beware - These waters be treacherous!

Do you have the sea legs to take on the waves and avoid the grips of Davey Jones' Locker?

Set up the ship board on its stand and then stack up the Tips and Ahoy treasure map cards into two separate piles. On your turn, you must draw one Tips card and one Ahoy card to decide your move.

Grab one of the wooden pirates according to the Tips card and place it on the ship any way you like. Then, grab the sea board according to the Ahoy card and position it beneath the ship.

"Batten down the hatches, mateys! Thar's a storm a-brewin'!"

As carefully as possible, pull the wave board through the stand and watch as the boat rocks, bumps, and tilts every which way.

"Arrrgghh! Man overboard! Man overboard!"

Once the big waves have finished moving through, you get to gather one gold coin for every pirate still on the ship. Old salts (pirates still on the ship) get to stay where they stand.

Keep on sailing and stacking pirates through seas both fair and rough until either all the coins have been grabbed or all the cards have been played.

The pirate with the most loot at the end of the game wins!

Beautifully designed, easy to learn, and packed with surprises, Tips Ahoy is a high sea adventure your little buccaneer won't want to miss!
