Age of Booty: Tactics is the successor to the 2008 game Age of Booty. It is a turn-based tactical game in which players control pirate ships. The objective of each game is to hold Treasure Tiles for a number of turns, eventually capturing enough treasure to win. To do this, the player must hold an opponent at bay by destroying enemy ships and using curses to affect the state of the game world. The game is played in multiplayer and is asynchronous, meaning that there may be long pauses between players' turns. Players tend to play multiple games simultaneously for this reason.
