The connection is blanantly obvious.  These are two games that you never want to play with a colourblind sufferer of acute hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia.

I played Code 777 against Stephen and Carlos at BGG.CON, and who do you think took the win? I took it -- EASY.

That, my friend, is an *excellent* (but very bad) pun.

OK, here we go:

Code 777 was co-designed by Alex Randolph, who also designed a game called Robin Hood.

In the movie Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves Lord Locksley is  played by Brian Blessed.

Brian Blessed also played Long John Silver in the 1986 TV miniseries Return to Treasure Island.

Peter Burley, designer of Take it Easy, also designed a 2003 game called Treasure Island.
