Games You Should Pick # 7: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest Pirates Dice Game

Hi everyone!

I thought since board games are my specialty, I would do a Game of the Week feature where I talk about a different board game and why you should be picking it up. We’ll call this feature Games You Should Pick. To make this interesting, I’m only going to talk about games I’ve actually managed to find and sell. There’s all kinds of games you should be looking out for, like Fireball Island and Dark Tower, but I haven’t managed to find either of those yet!

This week’s game is Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest Pirates Dice Game

PiratesDice

Who doesn’t love Pirates of the Caribbean? I mean, everyone loves it. From the Disney ride to the movies starring the very hot Johnny Depp, it’s an amazing franchise. Board Gaming capitalized on its popularity and released Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest Pirates Dice. It was a very cool game with gorgeous dice and four molded plastic cups. There were a couple of versions of it released, but the above pictured version is the only one I’ve ever managed to find.

Because of the movies popularity, a lot of mainstream gamers did buy this game when they saw it in the stores. As a result, it’s not really that rare and can often be found at yard sales or thrift stores. If you ever see one and it’s reasonably priced ($3 or less), it’s worth picking up, provided its complete. The contents are pretty slim, a collection of dice, four cups, and the instructions, so it’s very easy to tell if it is complete.

I’ve managed to find two copies of this game. Both were complete and in good condition. And both sold very quickly. One I sold for about $25 and the other I sold for $10. I’m not really sure why I sold the second copy for $10 other than I was trying to do a quick turnaround or experimenting with auctions and that went horribly wrong. Normally, I’d price these at $20 to $25 and in the future, I won’t be taking less than that.
