Potato Pirates: The Tastiest Coding Card Game

Potato Pirates is a lethal combination of potatoes programming and piracy. Cool, I like piracy. Rolled into an epic card game perfect for classrooms, family time, and game night with friends. You play as a Potato Pirate, leading a crew of trusty sea spuds on a mission to save Potato King. Be the first to collect all 7 Potato King cards by roasting, mashing, and frying your opponents, tossing them into Davy Jones’ Locker. Master The Art of Potato War to eliminate all enemies and reign terror on the high seas.

Use programming concepts such as functions, loops, and conditionals to fortify your attacks. If that’s not devastating enough, you could just loot & hijack your way to victory. That’s what I would do. Or you could just summon the Kraken to your aid and DENY everything! Potato Pirates 10 hours of programming in 30 minutes No screens attached Tech literacy is slowly but surely becoming a basic necessity. Programmers are the new superheroes.

But let’s face it, the mere mention of learning programming can sound so intimidating, and rightfully so. The learning curve is really steep and computer programming concepts are not the easiest thing to visualise. Ain’t that right Potato King? Potato Pirates reinvents the learning experience by removing computers, introducing a social element and gamifying the concepts. It is easy to setup and totally offline.
