Busy times for this pirate!

My 10th blog post!  Into double digits!  😀

After getting some feedback on the light vs. dark text dilemma, I’m still a little uncertain which way I’ll go.  However, if all the searching I do ends up saying one is better for reading, I’ll probably go with that.  In this post I made the text all black instead of the dark gray, which I think is easier to read.

I didn’t have time yesterday to add a new page to the site, but I hope to add one today.  I’ve also got a new page coming (hopefully soon) that wasn’t at the original weebly site.

Another milestone was reached recently – Historical custom of the day #100!  Despite not knowing about Yi Sun-sin before that day, I think he was a great choice for the landmark number.

After it was suggested more than once on youtube, I made another fleet making tutorial video.  This one is about making a Spanish-only fleet from Spanish Main.  Check it out and let me know your thoughts.  I’d like to make more videos like that, since fleet making tutorials have been requested in various places.

Deal of the Day: Rise of the Fiends Super Rare pack.

Pirates CSG Card of the Day

Set number: 5 – South China Seas

Collector’s Number: 105 – Albatross

Rarity: R
Type: Unique Treasure

This ship gets –1 to the result of every die roll you make for her. At the beginning of each of your turns, roll a d6. On a result of 6, the player to your right places Albatross on another of your ships. Albatross cannot be unloaded unless the ship it is on sinks.

This is a basic negative UT that can be quite annoying.  The bird appeared in a large game I played a long time ago, and was quite a thorn to one of the fleets throughout the game, especially when it came to rolling for SAT (Born Leader) and EA (extra action ability on a 5-6).  However, there are much more negative UT’s such as Missionary or Wolves.

Game Piece Rating: 2/10.  A negative UT that is quite annoying to roll for and unlikely to switch ships often.  For the fleets that want negative UT’s, this won’t be the first choice.  In my opinion, kind of just an obnoxious addition to the game.


Picture of the Day

Here’s a picture I really love from a small game I played.  Even dismasted and aflame, the Nox is a pretty ship haha.  Love the reflection off the coins on the island, and how the Fool’s Hope being in the foreground makes her look bigger by looming large.

The Fool’s Hope takes out the Nox!


As of now, I’m looking into various things, not just Pirates related.  Honestly I need to make more money, but I don’t want Pirates CSG to be the only way I do that, if I make any money at all from it haha.  I have a lot on my mind, so I just need to hustle and have speed in order to do what I want and need to do.  I’ll still be blogging and working on the site every day, but other things definitely require my attention and time.  As always, thank you for reading.


It’s a Pirates’ Life for Me.
