Hoist the Jolly Roger and take on other freebooters in this Pirate-themed risk versus reward card game. Dead Man's Draw is a 2 – 4 player game in which Pirates press their luck to see how much treasure they can accumulate. Plunder the most loot without losing it all to win the game and be the best Pirate on the seas.
The core of your turn in Dead Man's Draw is all in the flip of the cards; pulling the top card from the deck and using its special ability. Keep drawing cards and risk losing it all, or play it safe and bank your treasure. When you draw two cards of the same suit, your booty goes down to Davy's Locker! Remember – no pirate gets rich by playing it safe!
Your copy of Dead Man's Draw will come with:
60 loot cards
17 trait cards
In Dead Man’s Draw, press your luck as a pirate trying to amass the most booty. But here’s the catch, get too greedy, and you could lose it all!
Dead Man’s Draw is played by 2-4 pirates in about 10-15 minutes. Draw cards one at a time trying to collect the most loot, comprised of ten suits with six cards each. Draw different suits and your treasure grows, but if you get two of the same suit you Bust and your turn is over.
What will it be, Matey?

Mayday Games Frequently Asked Questions
Here are a few frequently asked questions about game card sleeves.

Card sleeves protect your cards from damage and wear.
2. Do Sleeves Scratch Cards?
No, card sleeves are specifically designed to prevent scratches and other damage to your cards.
3. How Important is Double Sleeving?
Double sleeving is extremely important. The added protection will keep your cards dust-free and protect them from water.

Usually, card sleeves flatten over time and use. Some people will use binders to flatten them faster.
