Hiddenelephant marks A Return to Piracy (2 players, 40 points)
hiddenelephant (Peter O’Connor on the module) just played his first game in quite some time!
We used our own fleets:
40pt French Introduction Fleet vs. Miniature Englishmen
To keep things fair at 40 points apiece I took out the Gibraltar flotilla and added oarsmen to the Antelope and Sea Tiger.
From top to bottom: the Jaguar and Descharges split up with some help from Deleflote aboard the Bonne Chance, but are pursued by the English gunships. The Antelope and Snipe team up at the center island, while the Sea Tiger is stuck for a turn after finding the Natives UT.
The English strike successfully, but their meager firepower can’t dismast either French ship.
The Descharges docked home 4 coins, while the Jaguar fought back, dismasting the Bilge with a ram. The English had a windfall with all 3 gold runners docking on the same turn.
The Bonne Chance finally sailed out, engaging the Cumberland. However, she was ineffective, only taking out one mast.
The Jaguar docked home gold, while the Bonne Chance repaired after sinking the Cumberland. The Antelope tries a ram to distract the Descharges while the Sea Tiger is about to load the game’s final coin.
The Descharges sank the Antelope with the help of Deleflote and then stole the final coin from the Sea Tiger!
In the end, hiddenelephant was victorious in his return to piracy!
- French: 26 gold
- English: 21 gold
