music and to hear Blackbeard talk.
The game board in Redhook's Revenge! consists of five sections similar to the one shown
below. Press the Space Bar to roll the dice to see where your ship lands. As you can see,
Le Boucher isn't too happy that fate has been unkind . . .
Bastain Blood, on the other hand, has faired much better. He successfully navigated
Mangrove Passage. Perhaps after this roll he will find hidden treasure, capture a hostage,
or fight a seaport.
By Jove, Bastain Blood fought a town! His two cannon were partially victorious over the
town's three cannons so he captured some of its gold.
As you can see, Bastain Blood has done right well for himself so far. By correctly
answering trivia questions he has earned rope and spare canvas to pull himself free from
sandbars. He has a map which may lead to treasure--or disappointment. He has enough food
and rum to keep his crew from mutiny. The water is running low so he had better stop at an
island for fresh supplies soon or bear the consequences!
Are you ready for Redhooks Revenge, matey? Are ye fit to sail yer ship cross
treacherous seas or will ye drown like rats in Poseidons depths? Can ye plunder more
gold than Blackbeard hisself before ye reach Buccaneers Haven, or will ye wind up
dryin in the sun at Execution Dock? If guts is what ye got, then quit yer
squallin and give Redhook's Revenge a try, by thunder! Theres plenty of
prizes, luck, and gold to roll, and to play duck and drake with ever after.
