Game Story:

A short while ago Long John Silver buried his treasure on a hidden island deep in the Pacific Ocean. Word of this traveled fast, soon Blackbeard brought his entire crew to the island to find and dig up Silver's treasure. Silver has also returned with his crew to claim what is rightfully his before Blackbeard can. It is now a race to see who can take the island and end up with Long John Silver's buried treasure.

Significant Rules for the game:

Each crew will have a Captain and a Cabin Boy. The Captain is responsible for his entire crew and organizes them to find and retrieve the treasures and complete objectives. There will be treasure chests buried across the island. Each Captain will be given a map of where the buried treasures are located. Anytime a treasure is found it must be returned to the Captain to open and then placed in the storage hold before points can be awarded and the treasure is safe. All buried treasure chests must be returned to the captain and are to be opened only by the Captain. After the first half of the game each Captain will be given the location of a large stash of treasure that has been buried on the island. That treasure chest will be locked and the crew must find the key to unlock it. There will also be 3 chests placed in the center of the field and those keys will also be found inside the various buried treasures. The 3 chests in the center of the field must not be moved. They have to be opened where they sit on the field and the bag of treasure must be taken back to the captain where he will empty the bag into the storage hold. If a player gets hit after opening one of the locked treasure chests the chest is to remain unlocked and the treasure is left inside for whomever can take it. If a player is shot while returning a treasure back to the Captain the player must put the treasure down where he was hit.

Each crew will be given a flag at the beginning of the game. There will be a mast at the center of the field to raise your crew's flag. Whichever crew's flag is at the top of the mast at the half and at the conclusion of the game will be given bonus points. When the first half of the game is over the crew's flag that is at the top of the mast will be returned to them. No crew can touch the other crew's flag unless it is to take their flag off the mast and replace it with their own. If a crew takes another crew's flag off the mast they must place it on the ground and a ref will return it to that crew's Captain. For a crew to get credit for having the flag on the mast at the half and the end of the game the flag must be all the way at the top of the mast.

The Cabin boy on each team acts as a medic. A white armband in addition to their crew's color will mark Cabin Boys. If you are hit put in your barrel plug and call for a Cabin Boy. When the Cabin Boy tags you then you may resume play. If 30 seconds goes by and there is still no Cabin Boy to help you then you must exit the field and wait until the next reinsertion.

Remember that there are no points for eliminating other players. The only way to win the game is to find the most treasure and complete any extra objectives.

All buried treasure will be no more than 6 inches in the ground. Each crew will be given shovels to dig up the treasure. Each crew will start the game with a bag of gold in their storage hold. The bag of gold is the only thing that can be taken from the other crew's hold if their base is taken. The bags of gold will be returned at the half after points have been awarded. No crew can take another crew's gems once they are in the storage hold. Each player will be given a card for participating in the event.
