    @hepitude I’m so glad that you found the last bastions of the Pirates CSG community! If you haven’t already, I’d suggest you join our discord server: https://discord.gg/cUrrqhxd
    You’re much more likely to find a good deal there, especially as a returning player. It’s also a bit more active as of late, so nows as good a time as any!

  • So given that Sea Monsters and Titans cannot be rammed, what is the point of the ability text of Empress (crew) and Hanc*ck (ship)? “<span style=”caret-color: #ffffff; color: #ffffff; font-size: medium; background-color: #44588b;”>If this ship wins a ram roll against a sea monster or titan, remove two segments instead of one.</span>” I just can’t…[Read more]

    You definitely got to the right place, as I saw that a Commodore Starbuck had joined the Pirates CSG chat. What you seem to be struggling with is logging in to your account. When you go to just discord.com (no backslashes for channels, just the plain website), is there a sign in option of you? There should be an email associated with your account…[Read more]

    • Hey Luke,
      I think I know the problem. I tried setting up via my work PC, and apparently I need to download an application to run the Discord page. My work laptop obviously doesn’t allow this for security reasons. I’ll try going to Discord.com via my personal PC, and see how that goes. Many thanks! I thought I was getting soft in the mind there,…[Read more]

    It looks like you found it already, sorry for not checking in sooner! It does seem that you haven’t agreed to the rules using an emoticon yet. Let me know if you need any help with that. I think that you should also post the Captain Nemo and submarine pieces you were looking for in the buy-sell-requests chat when you get the chance, I’m sure…[Read more]

    • Hey Luke, is the discord on this website of Bens? I tried Googling it, and found a link invite somewhere from Ben, but couldn’t ever sign up properly for some reason. So I actually have no idea what I’m doing there. Lol. You wouldn’t think that I work with computers for a living…

    Hey there Andrew! Glad you rediscovered this game after so many years. I too am a big Moby D!ck fan, so one of my first online purchases was for the Pequod to add to my infantile Pirates CSG collection. I would suggest that you join the Pirates CSG Discord for specific ships and crew bits, I guarantee someone there has it! You might also find some…[Read more]

    • Hey Luke! Thanks for the reply, and for the advice on the Discord feed. I’ll make sure to write up a post there for sure. I certainly do hope to acquire myself some Mercenaries, Nemo and the Nautilus.
      It would be awesome to find some other people to play with. I know that my wife will play with me, but I don’t know if she’s as excited as I am,…[Read more]

    • Hey Luke, when you say join the Pirates CSG Discord, where exactly can I find that? I realized that I have no idea where I’m going. lol. Thank you again!

  • They may not go over the point limit of the ship, but they do go over the point limit of the fleet. 60 points is a lot more common than 68 lol. I really wanted every ship to have a captain. And yes! There is a Black Diamond, it’s where I live, about an hour north of Rainier (big missed chance for a named crew right there). I’m just making my…[Read more]

    Another Combat fleet, but with a twist. All of these ships have the names of cities out here in the PNW. The tentative idea is that Black Diamond can move…[Read more]

  • Hey Cole! Couple questions for you: Have you joined the Pirates CSG Discord yet? If so what’s your username? Where are you based out of? Any particular favorite crew or ship in particular?

    I don’t think it’s possible for anyone to get that lucky. I set up this fleet to have an excuse to use Calico Cat and Griffin together after Lance (Soul X Crusader) hooked me up with them.

    For a 60 point build total that I used against Ben today! Every single ship has some amount of combat ability, and available space to ferry some gold. I purposely kept them…[Read more]

  • Better yet, would he take commissions for more custom oceans?

  • The question on everyone’s mind, where’d he get such a cool battle mat though?

  • Hey there y’all,

    I’m from Black Diamond, WA. I would definitely describe myself as entirely a player, I have no interest in keeping unpunched cards lying around, when instead I could use their untapped fleet potential against my enemies. I got into Pirates CSG around a month ago when I found an unopened Spanish Main pack at my local games store…[Read more]
