A Dead Man's Chest is a 3-hour theatre-style larp by Freeform Games. It is written by Mo Holkar and Tracy Bose.

The game has simple mechanics, with a combination of ability cards and paper-scissors-rock as a resolution mechanism.

Summary

Two pirate crews descend upon the sleepy Caribbean island of Santo Oloroso -- to avenge the death of their former master Captain Flint, or to find and grab his treasure?

Old enmities will surface, deals will be made and broken, and some folk will swing from the yard-arm while others receive the dreaded Black Spot, before these affairs are settled, for good or ill.

Will fortune favour the brave? Will faint heart ever win fair lady? How many Pieces of Eight make a Doubloon? Find out all this and more at A Dead Man's Chest.
