Captain Black is a cooperative board game with an electronic game master and a 3D pirate ship. The goal is to protect the pirate ship of Captain Black's ghost against all dangers and reach his treasure island in a given but unknown number of rounds.
After assembling the pirate ship from the box and provided parts, you select the difficulty and activate the figurine of Captain Black's ghost, the electronic game master.
A player round consists of rolling the die, moving up to the rolled number of spaces on the ship with his sailor, moving and activating the Captain, and solving the present or announced tasks at the location: fighting pirates, sea creatures, rats, fires, leaks or some mini games: blind snatching of items, throwing cubes, push ups/knee bends, etc. If all of these tasks are solved before night falls (i.e., the number of rounds is reached), the sailors have won; if night falls or the ship sinks or is seized by the pirates, the game is lost.
The Captain is powered by batteries and directed by plastic platforms on each ship location. The output is acoustic.
