In Cutthroats, you are a skilled diver living on Hardscrabble Island, a
small seaport past its prime. You will try to salvage a sunken treasure
from one of four shipwrecks; if you are successful, you will be fabulously
wealthy and enormously respected among old salts. Some characters in the
story will help you; others will try to stop you any way they can. If you
can think logically and keep your throat intact, the treasure can be yours.
Cutthroats used the standard box format which
consisted of a grey box with coloured horizontal stripes. It contained
"True Tales of Adventure", "Four Shipwrecks off Hardscrabble Island"
booklet, and Outfitters Int'l Price List (with tide table).
