Jackal - Archipelago is a strategic tabletop board game with simple and elegant game mechanics. Since the tiles that make up the field of play are always laid out in random order, Jackal is never the same game twice. Above all else, this is a game of skill - the outcome of each session will depend on each player's logical and strategic abilities rather than luck.

Each player controls three pirates who can move around the island, explore (by flipping over unexplored tiles), haul treasure, do battle with rival pirates, or perform special actions - such as meeting natives, garrisoning a fort, or even taking flight in a hot-air balloon.

To win the game, you must not only find the Jackal's buried treasure, but you must also successfully bring it back to your ship. A careless pirate's luck may be but fodder for a crafty pirate's guile: one of the most interesting strategies in the game lies in intercepting an opponent's pirates while they are carrying gold, or cunningly poaching poorly guarded piles of coins.
