Indian Player – First game for Karan R – June 12th, 2017
Just played a game with Karan R in India!
In their first game of Pirates, Karan went first with Barbary Untouchables V 2.0.
I followed with:
Augusta + captain, helmsman
Iberia + captain, helmsman
Angel de Guarda
After a turn and a half, the Corsairs stick together while the Augusta prepares an island for the Angel.
The Angel, Iberia, and Tiger’s Eye all grabbed gold, while the Augusta and Nubian Prince eyed each other near the Iberia.
The Augusta blocked the Nubian Prince to ensure the Iberia got home safely, and both fleets unloaded considerable hauls of gold. The NP dumped a crew to make room for a coin, while the Augusta sped off to intercept the Tiger’s Eye.
The gunships of each fleet started attacking the gold runners! The Iberia was dismasted, soon followed by the Tiger’s Eye and Angel.
The Augusta sank the Tiger’s Eye while the Nubian Prince sank the Angel and Iberia, leaving just the two gunships. The Augusta knew she couldn’t win a fight with her S range guns against the NP’s ability, and decided to drop both crew and load coins from the southeastern island.
A chase ensued, where the NP caught the Augusta and sunk her! Divers was flipped by the Corsairs to receive both coins (using standard treasure rules unlike in most of my other games).
- Barbary Corsairs: 16 gold
- Spanish: 13 gold
Karan R has their first victory in Pirates CSG, and another player has been introduced to the module! Also, another country is added to the list of locations where people have played Pirates remotely! (joining England, Spain, and Singapore, likely among others in the past)
