What would happen if the Golden Age pirate, Blackbeard, fought the dashing Muslim pirate Barbarossa? Who would win and why? Who would be the ultimate fighting pirate? In "VS Pirates," two pirate gangs meet on classic pirate ships and engage in fierce combat, with a hand-to-hand battle between the leader of each gang. Information on chosen weapons (such as clubs, cutlasses and caltrops), plus armor and tactics, gives further insight to each pirate's strengths and character.
