Pretty neat, I’ve never calculated my completion percentages by set but it’s cool. Across all the sets I’m nearly “pack complete”, mostly just missing some SR’s and probably a few random things. Taking LE’s/etc into account I’m probably at least 90% complete for the sets, with the possible exception of something like RotF which has a high percentage of LE’s since it was a small set but with plenty of rare stuff at the end. Although, I’ve never bothered to keep track of generic crew and probably never will. (much more of a player, though someday in the distant future maybe I’ll try to see if there are some I don’t have)
Elsinore is actually a pretty interesting ship.
Love the 6 masted junks, the OE ones are some of the best.May 31, 2019 at 7:52 AM #5382
Sooo, I think I have a problem. 🙂 Just picked up a booster box of RV. now, this I will be making video for the unpacking.May 31, 2019 at 8:02 AM #5383

Ya its a neat Longship and the effect certainly gives the Vikings some flexibility. Too bad the speed isn’t better though. Regardless when i saw one on Ebay i jumped on it!May 31, 2019 at 6:42 PM #5388

Great! Feel free to post a link to the video once you’ve got it! RV is a great set so you should get some exciting pulls.June 3, 2019 at 7:58 AM #5486
After watching Bens collection Video on the Cursed i went out and got Hades’ Realm. Awesome ship!June 3, 2019 at 2:35 PM #5491

Cool! Thanks for watching. She is a really neat ship for them, one of their few that can achieve a high max speed. I like to run her with captain+helmsman and maybe oarsman, to keep a few spots open for gold. Now I want to use her again, so perhaps I’ll be able to fit her into one of the summer games I hope to play.June 4, 2019 at 8:02 AM #5542

The love seems to be neverending! XD Getting really excited to play some physical games again after Legend of the Giant Turtle was pretty memorable. Actually I just got out fleets this morning for the next game, though it won’t start quite yet.
They only got a few 5 masters, but the Cursed make up for it a bit with a good set of 4 masters. Some of them are underrated in my opinion, including slow ones like the Whydah and Juggernaut.June 4, 2019 at 9:19 AM #5551
Agree, I find with the cursed that there are definitely some ships that need to be used almost every time you make a Cursed faction fleet. (Hades’ Realm, Grim Reaper, or Grinder) I’ll end there. Don’t want to get too off topic XDJune 10, 2019 at 4:40 PM #5667
Opened my blue tin. 3 Rv packs and 1 BC pack. I got the following:
Enterprise, Yankee, Fort Thompson, La Felicite, Executioner, Le Favori, Granada, HMS Lord Kenyon and a Cannoneer for each of the big 6 and the mermaid event card.
I really liked this pull and I have 5 OE mega packs coming soon.
FYI: I got a return from CCGCastle too.June 12, 2019 at 8:41 PM #5727
just opened my five 2 player packs and got three identical “packs” which contained. Squalo + Lady Newport+Cannoneer+Griffin… But that was not why I was getting the packs. I now have all six of the mega cards and picked up a lot of new ships to add to my collection.
Now to wait for my 30 packs of Fire & Steel.June 12, 2019 at 8:55 PM #5730
Great! I fondly remember those times when I was consistently adding new ships and crew to my collection.
That is unfortunate about the Mega Packs, and one thing I don’t miss as much lol. (getting lots of dupes, and ones that aren’t that useful in some cases like Squalo)
It is a nice deal on F&S, I’ve thought about it a few times the past few weeks haha. (just that I already have pretty much everything I could pull from the packs of that set)June 12, 2019 at 9:08 PM #5731
I was honestly going to buy the remaining but I figured someone in the community might want from Fire & SteelJune 13, 2019 at 11:25 AM #5764
Nice Pull! Enterprise is one of my favorite American ships!June 18, 2019 at 3:41 PM #6103Fitzroy_McCandlessParticipant
Recently got my hands on an unpunched Bauchon and did a HW gaming run. Filled out rise of fiends and pirates of the carribean sets including the holo-black pearl. I also bought a few risky lots from ebay that payed off including a lot of barbary coast/crimson coast ships and one unpunched flying dutchman from Davy Jones Curse.March 8, 2021 at 9:39 AM #13080
I have been playing again with one of my roommates and I decided for fun to buy a pack of F&S! Well I ended up getting this in the pack! I was pretty shocked to see this!March 9, 2021 at 3:41 AM #13081XerecsModerator
Nice pull! The FS Super Rares are pretty decent game-play wise. Granted, the Skin Flayer is expensive, and for the same amount of points you can get the Endeavor.March 10, 2021 at 7:43 AM #13083BartekParticipant
I have been looking for the Silver Coffin for… I don’t know, ages, still can’t get my hands on her 🙁March 10, 2021 at 9:16 AM #13084

Thanks, I started playing back around when South China was in stores and I couldn’t EVER pull a SR pack… Until Now!! But yes it is pretty usable and yes shes expensive but we usually play 100 point matches so it can work. Plus its no fun if you just use the same OP ships every game. I tried to use the Elsinore… Didnt end well for me XD.March 10, 2021 at 9:24 AM #13085

Maybe if you buy a random booster off Ebay you will get it too XDMay 7, 2021 at 10:28 AM #13152
I just bought my first product for the game ever. I purchased a booster box of OE. Excited to get started!May 7, 2021 at 10:44 AM #13153
Awesome! Post if you get anything cool!May 7, 2021 at 11:19 AM #13154
Will do! Is there somewhere I can find a set list for OE so that I know what I am looking for?May 8, 2021 at 12:41 AM #13156

As soon as you crack a pack you’ll see an OE checklist with the game pieces on it, but you can also use the Master Spreadsheet.May 11, 2021 at 5:43 AM #13162
First, anyone who is wary of ordering from HWG, don’t be. I purchased a lot of 36 OE boosters last Friday, and they arrived yesterday. Shipping was prompt and product was securely packaged. My wife and I were both very pleased with the experience so +1 to HWG. Second, my wife and I opened our lot of boosters and I don’t think I’ve had more fun opening product since my very first packs of Magic the Gathering. We opened a little over half of the total set with some duplicates. Unfortunately we opened 5 copies of La Reconquistador lol. As far as good pulls, we pulled most of the rare cards including both the HMS Grand Temple and Divine Dragon. We built probably 20 ships so far and that was a blast. Some of them are frustrating to build (glares accusingly at the junk ships). We have not had a chance to get our first game in yet, but tonight we will. I will post unwanted duplicates once we’ve got them all cataloged. I’d like to be able to trade them for cards we’re missing from the checklist.May 11, 2021 at 6:28 PM #13164XerecsModerator

Which checklist? Ocean’s Edge (OE) specifically or in general?May 12, 2021 at 5:21 AM #13166
Yes, specifically the OE checklist. My wife and I would like to complete the OE set before moving on to another set.May 15, 2021 at 8:50 PM #13181

Awesome, glad you had fun with it!!May 17, 2021 at 6:20 AM #13196
Yes! Thank you. The HMS Grand Temple is almost unfair with how great it is.May 25, 2021 at 12:43 PM #13223
Hit the jackpot on RVU and pulled the SR pack.
