Description
A game of pirates and treasures! Arr!!!
Let The Treasure of Isla Tortuga take you along the dangerous waters of the Spanish Main and explore its coasts in search of wonderful treasures.
Get the best equipment for this trip and recruit the most fearless crew and, even if you arrive too late to find the treasure, you will always have the chance to steal it from the others!!!

In every turn of The treasure of Isla Tortuga, the active player draws cards from the main deck, trying to find the most useful card for his ship. Every card has a cost in one of the four possible resources, but also contributes with some to your resource pool. This way, the more cards you reveal, the more resources you get and the better cards you may acquire. But be careful! Every card has a disaster flag associated. Show three identical flags and you are screwed!! Also, if you show an All aboard!! card, you may instead try to board other player's ship to steal a treasure or object. This is why, before acquiring big treasures, you may want to hire some tough guys to help you protect it...

There are four types of cards in The Treasure of Isla Tortuga:

 Decks to expand your ship, so you can fit more cards in it, or add to your defence to repel boarding attempts.
 Objects that give you extra resources or abilities.
 Treasures, that give you victory points.
 Crew, that either give you victory points or help you in boarding attempts.
