"Age of Booty is a fantastic game that anybody seeking a perfect party game should quickly seek out"

Age of Booty is a simple game with a simple premise. You are a pirate. There are other pirates. There are towns. There are things to loot. You raid towns, loot the things, and race against other pirates to achieve those goals. Maps all hold these same goals, meaning all that changes between different locations is the setup of each location. New games in new areas will simply feature differing landscape with resources and towns thrown around in different numbers and arrangements. Likewise, the visuals are simple and do just enough to let you know what each object and locale represents and does little more. At an initial peak, Age of Booty seems to be overly simple.

This simplicity is, however, Age of Booty's greatest strength. As the game itself is effectively a board game, this simplicity makes for the game to be easily picked up by players and quickly enjoyed by anybody of any level of gaming background. This game is infinitely accessible and infinitely fun as part of it. It's such an easy game to drag out for parties and pass around controllers, making it perfect for its job. Furthermore, the variations available for play are just enough to give the perfect level of variety for play. Players can either battle it out on their own or be organized into teams, aided or hindered by AI pirate crews, changing the mix up enough to where each game of AoB is exciting and fun to play.
