Pirates of the Spanish Main

At this year's GAMA Trade Show, Wizkids announced a makeover of their Pirates of the Spanish Main collectible ship game.  However, much as they did with Mage Knight last year, they are keeping the name but changing the game significantly. From what they told us at the show, this version will not have the cool minature pirate ships but will instead be a card game.  No indication as to how play works but, from what I saw, it looks as if each ship will have its own deck and you will be able to customize your own ship by mixing and matching cards from various decks.

No indication as to release date but I'd bet on later this year as the game apparently has been in development for some time.  Probably a GENCON or Origins release.
