3 Players at 40 Points – April 11th, 2015

Here’s a simple 40 point game that was played.

English:
HMS Shetland + helmsman
HMS Comet + oarsman
HMS Snipe + explorer
HMS Albion

Spanish: 
Augusta + helmsman
Napolitana + captain, oarsman
San Pedro + explorer

Mixed:
L’epee de L’ange + captain, helmsman
Algiers + explorer
Freedom’s Hand

The fleets went in the order of play as shown above.

The Snipe grabbed a 5 from a nearby island but the other English ships were too slow to get anywhere on the first turn.

The San Pedro quickly emptied an island for the Spanish as the other two Spaniards docked as well.

The Algiers headed east as the Freedom’s Hand docked at the same island as the Augusta.

The Shetland and L’Ange both headed east as ships made the short journey home to unload their gold.

The L’Ange dismasted the Albion and shot away one of the Shetland’s masts as well.

The Snipe traded her explorer for the two coins aboard the Albion.

The Albion was sunk by the L’Ange, who turned around and kept shooting at the Shetland even as she captured the Snipe.
