Reverse Captain Smokepot in a Small Game – June 21st, 2015

This game was played on 6/21/2015.

Fleet 1:
Batavian Bat + captain, helmsman
Augusta + helmsman
San Pedro + oarsman

Fleet 2:
L’epee de L’ange + captain, helmsman
Freedom’s Hand + explorer
Templar

Fleet 3:
Muninn + captain, helmsman, smokepot shot
Polaris + helmsman, explorer, oarsman

The game featured a few pieces of terrain and three wild islands placed in the center.

The Polaris was the first ship to explore. The Batavian Bat turned out to be a surprisingly good choice of gunship since the other two gunships in the game had exclusively L-range guns.

The Bat has knocked a mast off the Freedom’s Hand, while the San Pedro has emptied an island. The Polaris is back with gold, and Fleet 2 has drained an island using all three ships.

The Batavian Bat was then able to dismast the Freedom’s Hand, but she kept rowing, desperate to dock home her gold.

The San Pedro returns as the Freedom’s Hand sinks:

The Muninn can’t hit the Bat, but she goes 4 for 4 against the LEdA.

Knowing she probably won’t sink the Templar with her inaccurate cannons and because the Templar was within S rowing range of her HI, the Bat engages the Muninn, winning the ram roll but losing her helmsman in the boarding.

With all L-range guns, the Muninn decides to utilize her smokebank/reverse captain combo. Sinking the LEdA, the Muninn then ducks into a smokebank to avoid the Bat.
