Playing with Tiffany O’Brien!
Mox Boarding House in Bellevue WA
September 18th, 2021
I met up with former Wizkids product manager Tiffany O’Brien for a game at Mox Boarding House in Bellevue WA, near the location of the Wizkids offices they used when the game was still in print! O_O 😀
Having done a podcast last year, Tiffany and I met at a very cool gaming venue. My ship’s relocation has provided the perfect opportunities to meet up with various Pirates CSG players and former Wizkids employees located near Seattle.
She brought 2 regular packs and 2 megapacks of Ocean’s Edge, which we used for the game! I got a “mirror” or duplicate megapack, and neither of us ended up using many crew. It would be a 40 point game with round earth using my Basic Rules.
El Acorazado (OE version)
HMS Hermes + oarsman
We used the Gale Force Nine islands and put some terrain wherever we wanted it.
El Toro pinned El Acorazado in place, but no ram damage and no crew on either game piece meant no damage of any kind could be done!
Hostilities commence, with the Spanish flagship blasting away the creature’s arms before the crab can gain the upper hand!
The Strix and Hermes have reached islands. The Ghost Walker cancelled the Hermes’ Catamaran keyword but missed badly!
The Battleship finishes off The Bull!
The Hermes dropped off gold, being shadowed by the Ghost Walker. The Juggernaut and Acorazado are headed home with gold, with the Strix looking for a second haul of her own.
Two turns later and Tiffany was getting rich!
The Ghost Walker finally got some more shots in, cancelling Catamaran again and dismasting the Hermes. However, she would also need to get a coin and hope the Strix could rob the Juggernaut….
The Ghost Walker explored the island to grab the loot but the Acorazado blocked her easy route home:
The Strix did manage to ram the Juggernaut, but to no avail!
The Ghost Walker round earthed to find a route home, while Tiffany’s fleet regrouped. The Juggernaut brought home more gold as the Acorazado took the Hermes under tow.
The Ghost Walker docked home the final coin and it was decided!
- Tiffany: 27 gold
- Ben: 13 gold
We had a fun time with the great game of Pirates CSG! Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more!
Very cool that you managed to get a game in with Tiffany! Outside of the Hermes, not a whole lot of speed for either fleet.
It was great! Indeed, OE can be a lackluster set at times.
Awesome, It looks like you guys had a good time. Hopefully, there are more meetups in the future.
I hope so too, thanks for commenting.
