• This is a really complicated subject. To me the problem is actually less with the point cost variation and more that there are too many ships that just don’t seem to have a purpose. I don’t have a problem with distinguishing the good ships from the pack filler by tinkering with their point costs. But at least give the mediocre ships a defined…[Read more]

  • Do the Jade Rebellion versions of the Clear Wind and the Divine Wind have the same ability? I noticed that the master spreadsheet gives them the same ability, but the actual text on their cards is different.

    The Divine Wind has the standard wording for her ability: “If this ship shoots at a ship that was previously shot at by another ship this…[Read more]

  • I assembled some 60-plus ships over the last week or two, and this got me thinking…how many times do we suppose the production process WK was using changed during the game’s run? I identified the following trends that I feel are consistent enough to be significant:

    Barbary Coast is where I feel like I first noticed a change – the slots seem to…[Read more]

  • I don’t think there’s any question that the Corsairs would be the answer to that question.

    I’m not sure even the Pirates can match the sheer quantity of cheap, fast ships the Corsairs can put on the board. A ship that moves S+L with 4 cargo for 6 points is a great deal. Some factions (the Cursed say hi!) don’t even have a ship like that. The…[Read more]

  • I won an auction for several Jade 6-masters recently, but to get it I had to pay for a duplicate Grand Path. I kind of need to recoup that portion of the purchase price.

    I know the big Jade ships are getting harder and harder to find, so I figured I’d give folks here first crack at it before listing it back on eBay. Effectively I had to pay $25…[Read more]

  • I think all UT’s that are loaded facedown take up cargo space normally.  Not sure if that answers your question.

    The rules say that crew must be turned face up “when using its ability” – but crew like Master Bianco have a passive ability that is always active. I was thinking in terms of a situation like this: you have a ship docked at a wild is…[Read more]

  • Is ‘This crew takes up no cargo space’ an ability unto itself that is subject to the no-stacking rule? For years now I assumed it wasn’t, probably because it always comes bundled with another ability, and for whatever reason in my head I thought of no-stacking rule as applying to the suite of abilities in total in the case of such crew. But it…[Read more]
