On your turn you roll the dice and move along the track the number of spaces indicated. You may try to get a Treasure card by moving onto one of the branch tracks leading to a pirate holding a treasure chest.
If you roll a number printed on the chest you take a card. Some cards show gold and are needed to win, others show Tiny (the fat lady at the auction) or a pirate in the dungeon and are worthless but are kept so that opponents don't know how many treasures you have.
Landing on a peg leg pirate space forces you to lose a treasure. The first player with 2 treasures to reach the end of the boat track by exact count wins.
