    More than 10 years after the game went out of print, we’ve entered a strange period where even Miniature Trading is (mostly) a thing of the past.  This is a thread to reminisce about past experiences with the game.

    You can see some pages of the eBay thread, which was made by Holofernes two days before the shutdown.  I got a few pages in, but couldn’t find much.  However, it seems that there is more content from MT saved in the Internet Archive than I thought.

    Ben, I remember always being so excited to pick up one of these packs at the store as a kid. I loved oceans edge because of the crazy things you could pull from it. I also remember my frustration as a kid from breaking my El Toro during assembly! That killed me because the giant ? was probably my favorite thing I could have pulled. At present it is extremely rare that a ship gets broken, but as a child it happened frequently! I am still hoping to pull a titan to this day, I know I could just order one but the feeling of pulling one is so much more satisfying.

    I remember breaking 2 crabs in a short span of time a few years ago – they can be surprisingly fragile.

    Nice!  The video link isn’t working for me – looks like it’s on a manage/edit setting rather than a shareable URL.

    The plan is to add them all to the Scan project. The archive in the pirates CSG subreddit.

    Today is June 27th 2021.  10 years ago today I joined Miniature Trading!  Although the site shut down on July 1st 2019, it was the hub of Pirates CSG on the internet for about the full 11 years since Wizkids shut down on November 10th 2008.

    I made a youtube video of MT in its final days: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNUolUn2s3w
