This is my first Pirates game after coming back from hiatus. Most of my time has been taken up with things like work and other games. But I am slowly working my way back into the PocketModels portion of the PotSM world. This game was played against a7xfanben at the Miniature Trading Pirates forums using the VASSAL module. This report will be the first on this site of a game played over the internet. The...

Sea Wars: A New Group

San Cristobal - Spain; Points: 17; Masts: 5; Cargo: 5; Base Move: S+...

Battle of Culver's Cove

Tonight I got to visit with some old friends of mine. We had a delicious dinner at the ol' pub Culver's, and then we did battle with some pre-built fleets I had on hand.
