Find the Treasure - The Card Game! shares the theme with the "mother game"
Find the Treasure!. Again, the focus was to
create a general pirate feeling, although the theme had to stand back for the
mechanisms to let the players choose their own clues and build the map themselves.
Find the Treasure - The Card Game! reused the symbolic art from
Find the Treasure! to give the impression of a pirate map
and the card text made use of treasure hunting instructions ("In the jungle, 2 steps
from the pirate flag, there be rubies"). Besides that, the limited size of the game limited
the use of more thematic components.
Funny enough, the background story of Find the Treasure!,
with Captain Blackbeard leaving pieces of a map behind, worked even better here as cards
will literally end up as part of the final map.
