Playing Key Largo in Grenoble, France

Key Largo is a German-style board game designed by Paul Randles with Mike Selinker and Bruno Faidutti. It was published in 2005 by Tilsit Editions and in 2008 by Paizo Publishing; the game takes place in 1899 in the Key Largo area of Florida, where treasure-hunting companies seek gold and artifacts from shipwrecks before the hurricane season. The players hire divers, buy equipment, and search wrecks throughout the game; the game has a simultaneous action sequence which lets players choose locations for their ships to go twice per day, in the course of a ten-day game sequence.

Though not published by the same companies, in many ways it is a thematic sequel to Randles' game Pirate's Cove.[1]

The cover of the French edition, by artist David Cochard, is a parody of an illustration in The Adventures of Tintin comic Red Rackham's Treasure. Hurricane Katty is named for Randles' widow, Katty Pepermans; the faces on the money are caricatures of Randles, Faidutti, Selinker, Cochard, and game editor Nicolas Anton.
