One wild island with three beaches was used, with 5 coins per beach.

The Sea Tiger commenced hostilities, knocking out a mast on the Epee.

The Mercury followed up by hitting the Algiers:

The Sea Tiger continued to dog the White Fleet, hitting the Meresman as well.

The Mercury attacked both fleets, but only hit the Meresman:

The Mercury then sank the Algiers as her fleetmates raced home with gold.

The Mercury turns her attention back to the White Fleet:

However, the Bat docks home gold as the Epee positions herself into range! Unfortunately, she missed all four shots!

The Mercury used her guns and ramming to dismast the Epee, who was quickly towed by the Bat. Only two coins remained in play. Note how well the subs (especially the Coleoptera) blend in to this ocean.

The Bat can’t be hit by the Mercury’s L-range guns, and the oarsman on the Meresman prevents capture, so what will the Mercury do?

She uses her ability to move through the rocks and dock at the big island:

Everyone converges on the last coins:

The Duc and Coleoptera ram the Sea Tiger derelict as the Duc loads the coin. The Mercury makes a break in the opposite direction.

A good shot of the waterfalls:

The Bat rammed the Mercury, but lost her helmsman in a failed boarding attempt.

At this point, the Bat and the Sea Tiger couldn’t catch the Mercury or Duc respectively, so both coins (1’s of course!) went to the Red Fleet.

The count:
1. Red Fleet: 20 gold
2. Neutral Fleet: 17 gold
3. White Fleet: 14 gold
