      Curse of Tortuga


Tortuga is an island in the Caribbean. During the 17th century it was a venerable headquarters and hideout for pirates. As we like to say, crime doesn’t pay, so surely these pirates (at least some of them) met grisly ends. Take pirate karma into account as well as Tortuga’s close proximity to the fabled “Bermuda Triangle” and you are bound to find a curse or two! Curse of Tortuga is a fast-paced and fun piece inspired by the Pirates of Tortuga and their clearly assumed curse– bad guys never win!
