Well, here’s my version of the Small Fry Challenge.

The first fleet was in shock as Davy Jones’ PoC flew across the sea to dismast the Buffalo on turn 1.

The Cursed Pirates got off to a good start, with the Loa’s Justice grabbing gold from underneath the Napolitana. The Carcajou and derelict Buffalo loaded gold at the beginning of the next turn.

On the second turn, the Prince dismasted the Carcajou with her first attack, then sailed away and took both masts off the Loa’s Justice with the help of Griffin’s cannon bonus. With so many ships around, Davy had his work cut out for him since he had to eliminate all gold threats immediately before they could dock home any gold.

However, the Cursed Pirates had other ideas. The Pyre rammed a mast off the Prince while submerged, and the Freedom’s Hand used her sniping ability effectively to take out another mast, eliminating the English from the game!

The Napolitana was trying to sneak under the radar and grab some gold, but the Pyre slipped in to damage her.

The Freedom’s Hand sailed around the stern of the Napolitana and hit twice to sink the Spaniard and end the game, giving the Cursed Pirates an unexpectedly quick victory!
