Portal Games announces Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot

Portal Games has already one new game in the pipeline (Tides of Time / GenCon release) and now they have announced their second new game. It’s called Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot and a pirate dice game designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek.

Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot takes the fun of rolling dice and combines it with a rich scenario deck to make each game play differently. Each round, the players battle it out with merchant vessels and other ships, trying to grab as much loot as possible. One player takes dice from all the players, rattles them in their hand, and then tosses them into the game box to resolve the battle. Where your dice land in the box, as well as the symbols rolled determines the results of the battle and loot is claimed. Players may now return to port to upgrade their ship, hire new crew, or give their goods to the Pirate King for his favor. At the end of the game, the player who earned the most favor from the Pirate King is the winner!

RattleBattle

The retail release for the game is planned for August. As soon as we know all the necessary details we will offer the game for pre-order.
