  • Ahoy Matt!

    I agree, it will take some work trying to homebrew the ships for Pirates. I may end up 3D printing my own ships when it is all said and done (with some pre-painted, de-constructing aspect per Ben’s request). When you really think about it, the possibilities are endless. I am still interested in collecting all cards and ships from all…[Read more]

  • Ahoy Ben!!!

    You arr!!! doin a great job of continuing Pirates: CSG here!!! Pardon my frustration and venting. I have noticed that limited time and resources is a big issue with this game. CCG’s like Star Trek are easy compared to Pirates because for the most part they are just cards to represent personnel and ships. Pirates takes a little more…[Read more]

  • Ahoy Mateys!!!

    There is a site called The Continuing Committee that well, continues the Star Trek: CCG from Decipher when it officially became out of print and not being produced anymore. https://www.trekcc.org/ I think it would be nice to have a site that well, continues Pirates: CSG from Wizkids, etc…now that it is out of print and not being…[Read more]

    Pre-painted mini pirate ships that can be deconstructed you say someday, now that would be amazing!?! I would like to add custom bowsprits, etc…?

    Ahoy Ben!

    Bloodyriz is the scurvy dog’s name. I downloaded his PSD files from Boardgame Geek that are templates for just about everything Pirates CSG. He has templates for 1 and 2 mast ships and 2 segment subs. I wish he had made templates for 3 to 5 mast ships. Now that would have been real nice. I should pm him on BGG and see if will do it.

  • Ahoy Ben!

    Amen, Brother. No assembly required! You would have to print hulls and masts separate though. Oh and you would have to paint the ships too, unless you use brown black plastic for the hulls and white plastic for the masts. That could be a work around to painting just touches of details. Who knows what the future holds!?!

    P.S. Thanks!

    Ahoy mateys,

    I figured it!!! In order to replace an image you open File then Open & Place. My brain is in a pretzel now!!!

    Ahoy mateys!

    Does anyone know how to use Photopea? I do not own and have not used Photoshop before and Photopea is supposed to the online version. I am trying to edit the the Crew Card Template Bloodyriz made for download on Boardgame Geek. I do not know how to change Halmara Lurd Colthan’s image layer to replace it with another image so that I…[Read more]

  • Ahoy Xerecs!

    Thank you for your thorough reply. I do not know that much about 3-D printing either but I would assume that is the best way to have a tangible piece in your hands. It is an investment to buy one and I do not mind the grass roots approach that WizKids, Topps, and NECA took to make the ships constructible. I am hoping one day to have…[Read more]

  • Ahoy Xerecs!

    Thanks for welcoming me to the site. I am enjoying the friendly atmosphere Ben and crew facilitate here.  Making my own terrain is a great idea and I hope to upgrade to foam islands when I have played for a while. I like the idea of perspective and filling the table out more. I found a trade current in Vassal and plan on using the…[Read more]

  • Ahoy Xerecs!

    What Ben said about posting images in the forum 😉 In reference to homegrown ships, a few questions:

    1. How do you do it?

    2. What material do you print it out on?

    3. How do you get them to print even on both sides say like for masts and such?

    I am all about making my own custom ships, crew, and all elements in Pirates. I am here…[Read more]

  • Ahoy mateys!

    I am re-organizing the Master Spreadsheet by factions and if anyone is interested in wanting it when I am done, please let me know where to upload it. I am an Excel freak. I love data and spreadsheets!

  • Ahoy Ben & Randy!

    Great ideas, problem solved with Icebergs! What about Trade Currents? Would it be possible to get a picture of that game piece or is it also in Vassal?

  • Ahoy Ben!

    I learned something new today about islands. I learned they have an island on one side and a fog bank, reef, sargasso sea, etc…on the other side. How cool is that?

    Still haven’t found any trade currents, whirlpools, or icebergs yet. I just need to get the islands from the frozen north or proxy a fog bank for an iceberg?

  • Ahoy Ben!

    I appreciate the heads up on my ships selection. I know I have a lot to learn sailing the high seas. My overall goal is for my family and I to have fun! The choice of those ships were difficult, but I am a dad on a budget, I wanted ships with four masts, and it will make things interesting.

  • So…I will be ordering my 4 four mast ships:

    1. Revenge 11-4-4-L-4S,4L,4L,4S

    2. Golden Medusa 15-4-4-S+L-3L,2L,2L,3S

    3. Lady’s Scorn 15-4-4-S+S-3S,3L,3L,3S

    4. Rum Runner 13-4-4-S+S-4L,4L,4L,4L

    The best I could do!?! =/=

  • Ahoy Ben!

    You are correct sir! I am actually wanting to introduce the game to my wife and kids and would like all of us to use ships from the Pirate faction of equal value to balance everything out. That way none of us are OP of one another.

    Avast! =/=

  • Ahoy mateys!

    Would using playing cards instead of dice work to determine your rolls? What is the highest you can roll in this game? I’ve only seen people use one die for their roll, so would that mean you would only use aces-sixes and use face cards or jokers for wild roll? The suits could also affect the outcome of your rolls too.

    Hearts =…[Read more]

  • Ahoy mateys!

    I need some advise on 4 four masted pirate ships that are of equal strength, etc… any recommendations?

  • Are you able to customize Forts in Vassal?
