2 players, 60 points and 4 fleets, 20 points – March 12th, 2016

Two games were played: one at 60 points and another at just 20. The first game featured an English fleet taking on a Mixed fleet.

HMS Lord Kettering and HMS Bath set out:

How gorgeous:

The Lord Kettering takes care of some Pirate scum.

The Bath survived the attack, and the English have brought back a bunch of gold.

The civil war continues as the Empress takes on the Dunlap!

As the 1v1 battle rages, the Pequod loses a mast to the Lord Kettering but gets home with a Homing Beacon.

The Lord Kettering sank the Black Mongoose on her way to the Pequod:

The Lord Kettering round earthed her way to the west, dismasting the Moulin Rouge. The Empress was victorious against the Dunlap, and the Bath had the final treasure coin.

Total carnage! The fleets wage war with ferocity, with masts and spars falling everywhere.

In the end, the English were victorious 36-22!

The second game featured 4 20 point fleets, with each person controlling 2 fleets. The stipulation was that similar to CG1, each person had to play their fleets independently.

The Selkie started the action, going 1/3 on a sniping run against the Santo Columba.

The Sea Nymph and Pequod became locked in a fierce engagement, with the captained Pequod predictably getting the better of it.

The Selkie also took damage from the Pequod, who dropped her explorer at the island for more gold. I controlled the Spanish, so it was no surprise that I played them aggressively because of CG1.

After some more cannon fire and round earth shenanigans, the Pirates appeared to be the only fleet not in the running.

The Santo Columba used her S-boarding ability to rob the Black Mongoose, and after losing two more masts she was able to get it home. However, the Henry VIII was home with more gold for the English Pirates.

In the end, the Spanish were too shortsighted, going after the Pequod as the biggest threat but not paying enough attention to the English Pirates!

1. English Pirates: 24 gold
2. Spanish: 20
3. Americans: 15
4. Pirates: 0

What a great pair of games! The second one was especially intriguing for me, and the fun of playing tiny games with lots of fleets cannot be understated.
