Ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, Scallywags is not going to change the face
of gaming forever. Happily, what Scallywags is is a fun game that the whole
family can learn quickly and enjoy playing together. Mom and Dad will like the
price tag. Kids will love the fun sayings and the gold coins. A great addition
to family game night!
