Buccaneers and Lobsters is an adventure game that you can play online. The game is pirate themed and the idea is to build up your own pirate fleet with ships, sailors and weapons so that you can become a successful pirate and avoid getting attacked by colonial soldiers.

The game is set in 1798 during the Napoleonic wars. You start with a small band of misfits and begin to grow your pirate fleet by stealing supplies and gold from the King. With the supplies and gold you can work to trade them to buy ships, sailors and weapons which can help you to complete more missions and earn an even larger pirate following. You start with just one ship but the idea is to create a vast armada of ships that can help your score.

In the game you can go out on missions to destroy the Kings fleet and loot their materials were also intercept other players who are playing the game and take their supplies as well. You can get attacked by both computer players and real players throughout the course of the game so it’s very important to be careful and to establish a good defense as you play.

It’s very important that you always have extra money on hand because making sure that you have a good size crew as well as cannonballs will help you to starve off any attacks. With the limited gold that you have available to start it can get a bit difficult if you don’t immediately start going on missions. You could find yourself low on gold and without any defenses against other human players who are playing online.

Once you are able to build up a formidable fleet your defenses get a lot easier and you can steamroll many of the enemy computer players for easy money. This helps you to drastically build up your armada quite easily so that you can eventually take down human players for bigger points.

By inviting friends to help you out in the game you can work to create a larger fleet as well as alliances online, that can help you to take down bigger players. Inviting players and chatting with players is very easy you simply need to know their username and you can add them as a friend. Once you have added players as friends it’s very easy to talk to them as you play the game and to organize strategies to take down other players or to taunt your friends to get them to attack you so that you can take their items and supplies.
