|Not a full size island as we will have on Game Day, this was the pirate haven island for the day. Note the scurvy rat population among the palm trees!|
|My ship - "Scorpion" makes her way towards the pirate haven island. At this point I am actually escorting a prize to cash it in for, well, CASH! More appropriately - DOUBLOONS!|
|AJ's ship (left) dodges enemy fire. The stands are PVC pipes secured to a wooden base with casters. Note the ships boat on the base of the ship in the background.|
|Ships prepare to trade broadsides!|
It was a beautiful fall day here in NH and being outdoors was a real treat!
I really enjoyed the game. The rules we are using are modified 'Limeys and Slimeys' which are simple but fun. The highlight of this game for me was when I really acted the part and used my ships boat to board/capture a temporarily abandoned ship when the other crew left to search for a buried treasure. This is one of those games that you just can't take too seriously!
We only had 8-10 ships and at the game day we will have 20 or more. It should be a good time.
