    That is very true, Rob. Perhaps the solution in non signal flag environments is that a player can state what they plan but not make suggestions about

    There was a set of signaling rules called "Hoist Signals Aloft" that came with a game called "Fire as She Bears" using colored cubes.

    Wanted: Captains &*Crew abilities decks

    Anyone with Captains &*Crew abilities decks laying around? I would love a copy of those cards. Willing to pay up to 10 for this.

    I'm not a coder, and nobody ever did anything when I floated the idea back when the game was new. :(

    That is why I developed the wipe off ship logs DB. Speeds up play at cons no end and does away with having to clear up chips at the end.

    In the British Royal Navy, hanging back with your flagship was a great way to get your neck stretched "pour encourager les autres"--just ask

    All we did was use a signal flag to be displayed with the order and flag on cards held by the players. The Admiral just displayed on a small stand by

    Hang back...and do nothing. As long as this rule only imposes negative effects, I don't really see the fun in it (combined with the incentive to hang

    I've long thought an "e-Ship Log" app would be ideal for managing Chit Clutter. Nothing fancy, just replicates the paper log on your screen

    Another option is kind of like the Wings Ace skills system... each level of "multiple ship" command gets you one choice of Ability. So a squadron

    Flagship rule

    I just read the rulebook's optional Flagship rule. That's a rough one. It seems like it really would encourage the flagship to hang back.

    I hear there was a mobile app for solitary play some time back. Dors anyone know anything about that, and if there are plans to update or relaunch it?
