In Mutiny: A pirate's jolly game of dice and backstabbing, players take on the roles of 2-6 pirates, trying to horde gold while attempting to escape a steadily sinking ship. In this case, the captain may not go down with the ship, but you can bet everyone else will! 

Mutiny was introduced in concept during the 2014 VirtuaCon digital convention event. At that time it was called "Pirates of the Sinking Ship".

The rules for Mutiny are simple: Using five, or perhaps six, standard dice, players roll for values of 3-5, hoping to amass wealth, 6's to board the lifeboat on which the gold are stored, while attempting to avoid 1's and 2's, which sink the ship. 

When the ship reaches a water level of 20 fathoms, the ship sinks, with all aboard except whichever clever pirate has snuck aboard the lifeboat and made away with the treasure.

This game also includes Rum cards, which can be spent to gain initiative to roll dice. However, when a player's number is rolled, his rum card must be spent. Therefore, all players will receive an opportunity to roll the dice (and hopefully board the lifeboat) at least once. 

Mutiny is played over a course of 3 separate games. Player character abilities shift each game, and are related to numbers also used to initiate a player's turn.

1) When this player is aboard the lifeboat, 1's rolled increase the water level by 2 fathoms.

2) This player may reroll any 2's rolled during his turn.

3) This player may keep his Rum card until he chooses to spend it to take his turn.

4) This player adds 2 gold to the lifeboat whenever he rolls a 4.

5) This player acquires 1 gold for his own personal pocket whenever anyone rolls his number during turn initiation. (The gold is added to his score at game end, provided he has won at least one of the three games.)

6) This player rolls six dice, instead of 5.

May the best backstabbing mutineer win!

Note: This game is playable by young ones 8+, but as rum is featured in the cards, (appropriate to the pirate theme), parents are cautioned.

Product Information
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
