    I LOVE the scale of this game!  The small ships actually make the games feel like part of a bigger world and seascape, which it looks like some other naval board games lack.

    Of course, I love playing huge games that use very large oceans, so the scale of the game is perfect for what I love most about Pirates.  However, even for smaller games it’s a nice scale that lets a somewhat small tabletop function as a realistic cove or bay.

    I’m glad that the ships aren’t any smaller or bigger.  If they were smaller, putting the vessels together effectively would be more difficult.  Most of the parts are just big enough to be pretty accessible to ship builders.  If things were bigger, it would limit the scale and scope of games.  Some pictures might be more amazing and detailed, but you can get really good shots by getting up close to the models and getting at mast or sea level.

    Do you love the scale of Pirates as much as I do?

    I agree! not really sure if they should be called “pocket models”. Sounds like a good way to break a mast!

    Indeed!  I like that idea more for action figures or something that is all one piece, that doesn’t get disassembled.  The cards would fit nicely in a pocket, but I wouldn’t want to risk ships in there….
