• Does the action limit apply to a Treasure Ship’s ability to move after loading treasure? So if a treasure ship uses an ability to gain a second action, then uses it to explore, can it now move S away per the Treasure Ship ability?

  • I do like setting up a large island with lots of treasure!!! lots o fun! I did a Columbus Day game where we did UT’s only and it was amazing. I think I will take your advice and do some UT only matches soon!

  • Going off standard game rules, I’ve been adding an extra wild island per player for every 20 points over 40 we use. Sometimes it is fun just to make an ocean and not worry so much about balancing islands for thematic reasons or whatever. Most of my small games are 60-80 points..I think I need to step up the games! 😉

  • 100 point games can get pretty big!! I’ve been thinking more about how many islands should be in play as the game points go up. How many wild islands do your 100 point games usually have?

  • Yea they wouldn’t be as screwed in my household if I had multiples of the basic crew. I have one complete set of SCS so the Jades only get one of each basic crew. I should probably be more willing to make proxy pieces …we talked about this actually haha. Their named crew are definitely the saving grace, though as you pointed out.

  • I like that rule myself. We do the same with those factions, except for Jades. They get slightly screwed on basic crew because the set only gives one of each of some things, but they do very well. I like when each person has access to all of one faction. I am big for keeping fleets faction based unless we are doing econ games.

  • If I’m playing solo, ti is much easier to be creative with monsters and such. Usually if I’m playing with my roommate we do a draft prior to the game. Each pick one game piece at a time until our point allowance is met. Those tend to be the “power piece” games.


  • Hahaha you pretty much got it. I wanted to open up to all different play types, Econ games, standard games, scenarios…just going into a “new game” could have been a better phrase!


  • How do you guys usually pick your game types or fleets when going into a new campaign? Usually, I will have an idea for a crew or ship synergy and build a fleet using that concept. Sometimes it is as simple as wanting to use specific types of ships, specific factions for thematic purposes, or even terrain set up ideas. What gets you excited to…[Read more]

    Well…I have two left to hunt!!! I will probably stay away from buying on ebay for a while unless a gem comes along. Just gotta keep trolling or maybe trades!!!! *fingers crossed*

    I probably got my wires crossed on the Delusion/Baochuan then..they were all from the same seller, right? so…..unfortunately….that Celtic…went to us hahahaha. I usually see them for 60-100 in bidding so I thought it was an ok buy…think I need to be more patient? ;-/

  • Hahah Yea I wanted to do something more supportive than offensive in honor of the website! I made some for friends from the group as well. Lots of fun!

  • <p style=”text-align: left;”>This is amazing and getting used asap!!! Hahah!!! Been working on some for a couple of people, but I’ll throw this one out while yr still on break!!</p>

    Those 5 masters were all nail biters! We snagged the Celtic for around 60. I think the Zeus went for around 90$, and surprisingly the Delusion sold for more than a Baochuan both between 20-40 I think. I feel like the community truly showed what these ships are worth since the bidding started so low.

    this sounds super cool but definitely got to start learning to play on vassal!

  • whoooaaa that sounded freaking awesome!!!!! I didn’t know you played~~~ HYPE!

    I could get behind a structured competitive gambling scene for Pirates. With money on the line there may be a need for more strict guidelines on fleet builds. Las Vegas would be the perfect place to test out this theory!!! 🙂


    I see no reason not to make this all about me so….

    Fleet of the Year: Revolutionary War themed American fleet. I’ll have to post a report one day, but it consisted of USS Thomas Jefferson, USS James Madison (SCS), Constitution (RV) and Aaron Burr

    Picture of the Year: one of my favorites to set up (even if it was the post that had my poor…[Read more]

  • I’d have to support a vote for Piranha as well. As someone officially affiliated with the game, a deserving entry indeed. I haven’t had the chance to interact, but the episode of the podcast was pretty great! That’s my piece of eight…. 😉

  • BEN!!! Oh man…just dropping that on us on a Tuesday?? 🙁   Well good luck, man…I truly hope you find something special during your time. Truly honored to hopefully be part of one of your bon voyage games! Fair winds and following seas, my friend.
