The Golden Age of Piracy lasted for thirty years, from 1690 to 1720, and Nassau was at its heart. Nassau was a tropical pirate paradise that was home to the greatest concentration of pirates ever seen.
In the game of Pirates of Nassau you become a pirate operating out of the port of Nassau. You will hunt the merchants that ply the nearby trade routes, plunder their cargo and use your ill-gotten gains to improve your ship and hire a motley crew of buccaneers. As you do so, your notoriety will grow, and you will become a target for the increasingly aggressive Royal Navy squadrons that are attempting to crush the pirates of the Spanish Main. At the end of the game, the player who has become the most successful pirate will be declared the winner.
