At first, all I could feel was vibrations in my feet, then, a low rumble that seemed to shake the entire ship. It grew louder until it was almost deafening. The ship lurched to one side, and I instinctively reached for the nearest post—despite the flames that crawled up it. There was a screeching sound that seemed to come from everywhere… And then I was on my back. The wood splintered as it crashed around me. The room flooded with water. Then I saw it: a tentacle the size of a ship’s mast crashed through the room, obliterating everything in sight. But I was ready for this! I knew the Kraken was in these waters. So I took up my axe and pushed my way toward the treasure…
When playing with The Kraken, the gameplay remains the same as Dead Men Tell No Tales, with the following exceptions: A new threat has emerged from the sea! In order to win the game, in addition to getting the treasure and your pirates off the ship, you must ALSO kill the Kraken. If the Kraken destroys the ship or pulls it underwater, you lose the game.

Walkthrough and review by Pirate's Parley:
Custom wood bits
Instead of simple cubes for the cannons and the Kraken health trackers, we'll make them custom shaped wood bits.
Exploded Barrel tokens
While not needed for the game, we've listened to some fans that thought it would be nice to have these. When a barrel explodes, currently you move the die over to cover it up. With these tokens, you’d cover it up with the token. We'll include 6.
Player Color Plastic Disks
To help you see your player's miniature, we'll create these cool plastic rings to snap on the bottom of your miniature. These help distinguish one character from another at a glance when using unpainted minis. 1 disk will come with the Kraken expansion and 7 in the Pirate miniatures addon box.
