Sid Meier’s Pirates! is a video game created by Sid Meier and developed and published by MicroProse in 1987. It was the first game to include the name “Sid Meier” in its title as an effort by MicroProse to attract fans of Meier’s earlier games, most of which were combat vehicle simulation video games. The game is a simulation of the life of a pirate, a privateer or a pirate hunter in the in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries.
Brilliant logic game about piracy of vessels battle well done.
One of these is the 17th Century naval setting, with the opposing galleons of Black Pete the pirate, versus Captain Carlos of the Spanish Armada. Each opposing ship has 15 troops (checkers) laying in wait in the cannon bays, ready to pounce out onto the “game board”. Each of the five cannons bays has three troops. You have the option to play as Captain Carlos or Black Pete.
