Been a completist since I first started CCGs/CSG/TCG collecting. Trying not to pass that onto my son with Transformers.
Always been willing to go overboard on collecting Pirates. Buy a large lot for needing 2-3 ships. Buy a box when a pack will do. Or a case when a box would.
Most lately has been restocking packs for draft play. Down to the last…[Read more]

Hope you enjoy your time in the Navy!
My biggest issue with TrekCC was adding the existing cards into pdf for printing out what you wanted. Tanked most of the trade market beyond collectors of a few sets. I finally gave up and just culled 2/3’s of my trade-stock and mixed it in with deck stock.
Great idea though and it’s bought the game well over a decade since it ended.
As for…[Read more]
Matt Lovell replied to the topic Buy/Sell/Trade collection-based Master Spreadsheet? in the forum Pirates CSG 2 months, 1 week ago
I’d prefer a list with all the sets on the same tab for searchability sake (but that’s why I maintain my own list). It also makes the list unfortunately long which I understand can be bothersome as well. (2425 lines on mine without including 2004/2005 islands or Ger. SM UL)
I’d say if anything having the extra ‘In collection’ column may be…[Read more]
Any chance of back of pack picture as well?
Since I mentioned actually posting here in my second FB group post earlier today, here goes.
I’ve only ever used pack drafts to make 40 point fleets, never just one made from my collection that I recall.
I hear that last number used to contact Jenny but she changed her number…
Nice getting it to complete the dragons. Totally over-traded for it.
I will tentatively toss my hat in as a player. No VASSAL experience but have set a goal of trying it out this month.
Always been more of a pack-draft guy so it will also be a change of pace actually trying to make a fleet with more than a few options.
Matt Lovell replied to the topic What expansions do you have? What is your favorite expansion? in the forum Pirates CSG 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Have cards from all expansions and almost all of those cards in them.
Favorite? I’ll go with Crimson Coast if I have to choose one. Why? Honestly forts, the French ships, and the brick red background for the cards. But I love the earlier ‘unique’ ship types-Junks from SCS, Corsairs in BC, Subs in MI (off topic-subs are the reason I bought a case…[Read more]
and the FN equivalent in Polaris pack 300 Polaris, 301 Serpents Fang, (No 302), 303 Odin’s Revenge.
Based outside of Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
Some travel near Philly PA and Orlando FL maybe 1/2 times a year.
Mostly do pack draft games but can work on a fleet if needed.
Even as someone who generally considers himself a near OCD completionist, that shading difference for SM is just not something I want to try and tackle.

I need only 40 items including things like a Ship in a bottle, Chummaker and Obago Deuce while this silly little common doesn’t want to show up in a pack.
One day, I’m going to just start cracking the rest of my BC-U packs until I pull it or go crazy 😉
I’m pretty sure it’s been getting hit hard by people waiting for the last day. Been trying to get my lesser game stuff today, very slowly. Finally dawning on people to back lists up.
Has been odd for it to have been working for the past week consistently though since they announced. If only they could have done that the past three months….
Built in tower means my collection copy is built instead of unpunched and stored in the ship tower. Still working on that list.
Never messed with Goggle docs before so not sure on settings. Just dumped my excel file into it and deleted some of the tabs I didn’t need to share. Figure I’ll make some adjustments as I play with it.
Ok so since MT is about gone, and I was just starting to get into a nice upswing dealing there, here will be my first attempt at seeing if my google doc link will work and deal from here.
I do have a small (<50 items) wants tab and will trade well for them but most of this will be for sales. I do try and buy lots at very low pricing and try to…[Read more]
Matt Lovell replied to the topic Anybody have an extra Yankee and La Vengance they'd be willing to sell me? in the forum Pirates CSG 5 months, 2 weeks ago
WIll shoot you a PM. Have both L/UL versions for both.
Matt Lovell replied to the topic What do you miss most about the game being out of print? in the forum Pirates CSG 5 months, 3 weeks ago
I miss games at LGS. Was nice showing up and occasionally getting to play against someone not my wife and maybe getting a tourney card out of it. Really need to try and get a date set up at our current LGS to play. Maybe convince others to pick up the game.
I miss finding the packs at stores. It was part of the fun for us to drive around seeing…[Read more]
Matt Lovell replied to the topic Rules for Thought #34 – Repairing by d6 roll, Creatures repair by eating crew? in the forum Pirates CSG 5 months, 3 weeks ago
Maybe a small change to shipwright needing to be on a ship only and not islands or some type of delay in its’ ability if it’s left on an island for a turn should work. Haven’t had time for a bunch of thought on this one yet. Not sure how well it’d work.
Or perhaps a shipyard type card required on an island where the shipwright could repair extra.…[Read more]
