    Ahoy, shipmates!

    Although I signed up a couple of years ago, it was at a time when things were more amorphous and I was not able to post...and so now I am 'legitimate' in being able to post and reply!

    I have been playing Wings in its various forms for several years now, and Sails has crept its way into the game realm, too - one of our guys we regularly play with is an avid naval enthusiast. ANYWAY - it's a great game and I look forward to playing more often. Meeting Simon (Ensign Patch) this past summer only fueled my desire to get more 'into' the whole 'Sails' experience.

    I look forward to being a member of this Forum!

    All the best,
    Matt

    I have to say that my 'first' experience with Sails gaming was with Wooden Ships and Iron Men in 1975 when I was stationed in West Berlin. That's when I also discover the "Bolitho' series of books at the NAAFI in the British Sector - I grabbed 'em all and read them cover to cover - then came the Hornblower series from Penguin shorty after...I was hooked

    We've started playing Sails in our little group here, and it's great stuff! I think a pirate ship is in the offing for the near future...

    All the best,
    Matt

    Hi Matt. Here is your formal welcome to the Anchorage from myself on behalf of all the sailors who frequent these waters.
    I thought I recognised your e-mail address when I registered you.
    May you sail with a fair wind and vanquish your enemies.
    Rob.

    I used to play Wooden Ships. As a matter of fact I was picking up after my dog this afternoon and saw my copy. I didn't remember bringing it home from storage.
    Welcome aboard!

    Hello Matt. What part of Ohio do you hail from? We are starting a Sails of Glory Group at Game Haven - right across from The National Museum of the US Air Force and Wright Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, Ohio. We are looking for interested captains.

    I'm in Springboro, Rick, and know exactly where Game Haven is. When do you meet to play Sails? I'm already spoken for on the second Saturday of the month with the Wright Flight guys at Epic Loot for WWI Wings...

    All the best,
    Matt
