Blackbeard's Revenge is the subtitle of the Treasure Island sequel showing at the Pirate version of the Cinema.

Blackbeard's Revenge appears on the base game GJNPRV box cover.

The figurehead on the ship is definitely not the arch enemy of Guybrush Threepwood.

A 2-for-1 Deal

City - Funfair

Illustration: Mr Cuddington

Theme:Quantity
Pirate:1

Notes

As with all effects that mention a marked coin price, if a card's price is marked in a different currency, such as Alien Influence, then it doesn't have a marked coin price, and isn't a suitable choice.

+ House of Wax

If you used the House of Wax and paid a non-zero amount of coins to build an upgrade, and the upgrade came from the Market, then you can build a second attraction or upgrade from the Market for free using the 2-For-1 Deal if it is the active City event that round.

You don't get to choose a free build up to the marked coin price of the item, only the amount you actually paid, just like a real-world 2-for-1 deal.

The House of Wax is an extra option allowing you to use an action to build an item for a lower price, but it doesn't actually reduce the price of all the other items in the Market for you.

Card effect rewritten completely.

Previously "Spend 1 coin for each attraction and upgrade icon included in your park. If you cannot, demolish upgrades then attractions until you can."

This card proved to be the cause of some considerable rage, more than was intended. The problem occurred for players when the previous round had lots of ride closures, and players made little money. Heading into this round, they would be required to demolish most of their park because they couldn't pay the insurance.

The new version is cheaper, but more importantly only closes attractions if not paid, rather than demolishing them, and it gives you a choice between paying or closing, rather than forcing the cash payment.

 


 

Spiraling Costs

Notes

+ Building Contractor

The general principle is that you work out what you were going to pay, and then double it if it's coming from the Market.

Players have four options for building under this combination:

  • They can pay the bank to build from the Market, for double the current price (which is usually the marked coin price).
  • They can pay the bank to build from their hand, for the current price (which is usually the marked coin price).
  • They can pay the Building Contractor half the marked coin price to build from the Market, only to have that cost doubled by the City event. Note that this can save a coin on rounding. (eg. 15 -> 7 -> 14)
  • They can pay the Building Contractor half the marked coin price to build from their hand.

A similar approach applies with Renovation.

Changed Anonymous Complaint rule text.

Previously "close all ride attractions", now limited to "a type of ride attraction".

The original effect proved to be a bit more harsh than some players expected (especially those who built all-ride parks).

The new effect is limited to one type of ride attraction, without saying specifically "thrill ride" or "leisure ride", which means it can expand to work with future theme packs that include other types of rides without needing to be changed again.

Notes

Project Management

This event offers two separate options, each of which is optional. You can choose to use only one, or the other, or both.

This means it is possible to discard a blueprint if you wish, without being forced to take another.

 

Updates

Original printings of this card have a small variation in the wording of Project Management. It was previously written as:

  • "You may draw three Blueprint cards and choose one to keep. You may discard a Blueprint card you own." 

  Please use this wording, from the current version of the card, if there is any dispute about the intention:

  • "You may draw up to three Blueprint cards then choose one to keep. You may discard a blueprint you own." 

The change to the first sentence allows the card to still be useful in the case when the Blueprint deck has fewer than three cards remaining. This was the intended functioning of the card, and wasn't expressed precisely enough in the original printing.

The change to the second sentence doesn't change the meaning. The wording was adjusted to bring it into the line with improvements in the wording guidelines for card rules.

Notes

Renovation

The effect doesn't stack with itself. You don't get half of half price if you play two copies of Renovation at once. This is because each one gives a discount based on the marked coin price, which is the number printed on the blue price tag on the card. 

If you play two copies, you simply have two different ways to get half price.

The same goes for other effects that give half price. You can have multiple ways of accessing half price builds, through different abilities such as Building Contractor, but they can't be combined together.

The half-price discount only applies to cards that are priced in coins. Prices marked in Alien Influence or any other currency are not reduced.

You can use Renovation on any of your closed attractions, no matter how they came to be closed, whether it be through the event itself, another event played by a competitor, a City event card, etc.  The pin symbol and the wording makes Renovation an enduring effect throughout the entire round. Whenever you build an upgrade, if the attraction is closed, you can build on it for half the marked coin price.

Card rule reworded.

Previously "Once per Guests step: Choose an open ride attraction in your park. Gain 2 extra coins for each star in its star total."

The previous wording caused some confusion about "each star", with some players thinking they needed to count the star symbols rather than totalling the numbers on them. Quite a reasonable interpretation, so the card is now reworded to remove that confusion.

The name tag reads "Anoush", a name which by astonishing coincidence means "sweet".

Swapped the "Super attractions: 1" line with the "Total attractions: 5" line. 

We'd received questions about whether the super attractions are included in the attraction limit or not. The rulebook answered that, and it answers it even more emphatically now, but we also thought that putting the "Total attraction" limit last would help to make that clearer. Better to reprint only 6 cards now than change it later and need to reprint 10, or 14, or...

Big Al is a respectable businessman who for some reason is featured in the Gangster theme pack. He owns a wide range of businesses, including Waste Management, a Pizzeria, and employs various Building Contractors. His financial services include loans for up-and-coming entrepreneurs at generous rates, and occasionally helping to cover the outrageous Insurance Excess payments demanded by insurers. He will also take any pair of unwanted Showcase cards off your hands, at a more-than-fair price.
