    October 26, 2005 (SEATTLE) - WizKids Inc., creator of the runaway hit games HeroClix® and Pirates of the Spanish Main, is proud to announce the release of the newest stand-alone expansion for Pirates, Pirates of the Barbary Coast.

    "Pirates of the Barbary Coast continues the exciting nautical fun of other Pirates expansions without sacrificing the game's simplicity and elegance," said Mike Samora, vice president of Sales and Marketing for WizKids®. "Everything that makes Pirates a continued success is here: a complete, easy to learn game in every pack, with unique additions just for this release."

    Pirates of the Barbary Coast moves the hunt for gold and glory to the Mediterranean, where the Barbary Corsairs battle European and American powers for control. New galley ships, which combine sails and oars and can quite literally outrun and outmaneuver the larger European vessels, terrorize both nation and pirate alike!
