HMS Dolores is a compact, quick to play, prisoner's dilemma game. Do you cooperate and risk getting outsmarted by a greedy player? Or compete and risk losing everything?
Players take on the role of pirates, returning from a day of pillaging. Now you must negotiate how to split the loot!
Plenty of room for backstabbing, allegiances and conniving in a compact box and with a short play time, make this a great party game, or an opener for a gaming night.
Shiver mi timbers!

How to play?
There are seven types of loot with values from 1 to 3. At the end of the game, you only score the treasure types you have the most and least of.
On each turn, open four new treasures: two in front of you and two in front of your neighbour. Simultaneously decide how to split them. Choices:
- Peace (I want the 2 in front of me)
- War (I want them all)
- First pick (I want just one, pick first)
- If both players choose peace, split the loot evenly. If both choose war, lose all treasure. If both choose first pick, lose all treasure and one of your gained treasure columns.
- The game continues until the Dawn Card is drawn.
