For my 1,400th post (on Miniature Trading), what else but another battle report! Another person has been introduced to Pirates! They received 2 packs of OE and 1 pack of DJC to go along with the MI Convention Pack. From now on, just assume that every single player has access to the game pieces contained in the MI Convention Exclusive.
USS Aaron Burr + Commodore Peregrine Stern, helmsman
Le Duc d’Enghien + captain, helmsman, oarsman
La Richelieu + helmsman
USS Plymouth Rock
The setup featured three beautiful wild islands with 10 total coins on them, as well as the nice new rocks made by rossinaz.
The Plymouth Rock and Richelieu explored the middle island while the Aaron Burr sailed to the western one. Champ stayed underwater.
With S+L+S speed, the Duc quickly caught the Aaron Burr, dismasting her and taking a 5 coin. On the next turn, the Duc sunk the Aaron Burr and used her reverse captain ability to approach Champ.
Champ looks to attack the Richelieu as the Plymouth Rock docks home her gold.
Champ failed the ram and board, allowing the Richelieu to dock and the Duc to corner the now-surfaced sea serpent, shooting off the beast’s tail.
On the next turn, Champ took a mast off the Duc, but it was too late. The Duc unloaded her gold. The Americans had no way of getting any more gold, and the French prevailed with an 18-3 victory!
More coming soon…
