    If only they weren't both on my side...

    I'm pretty sure any problem was with the explanation/understanding of the scenario. From this it's pretty clear that no re-planning is intended.

    The ideal number of ships per player is clearly one. If your battles aren't interesting enough you need to add more players. :beer:
  3. Generic victory point system for large games

    I'm hoping to be putting together a reasonably large game in a couple of weeks, and I was pondering a victory point system. I would like it to simply reflect the custom of ships of the line not...

    A lot of great discussion here!


    I suppose my suggested tweak is somewhat comparable to the Langton half move on turn 3. I'm personally not a fan of the idea of turning a tack into a game of...
  5. Turning into & away from the wind (and tweak suggestion)

    I was pondering the practical differences of ships reversing course by turning into vs. away from the wind. So I figured I'd maneuver through a set for comparison and share the pictures...

    You mean the site that's giving me database errors this morning?

    IMHO a site not running properly is not a good reason to blindly throw money at it.

    I haven't handled them myself, but it appears that the Ship's logs from wave 2 are too large for the current ships mats. You may want to verify that and adjust your dimensions accordingly before...

    What was the total size of your order? Your numbers may be the closest we ever get to a real estimate of percentage of shipment damaged.

    This is a great idea! I don't know why it wasn't incorporated as part of the standard rules for being Taken Aback, actually (without the action requirement).

    Probably too late in the production prcess, but is there room for a pair of anchors on your ratline sheets?

    Sure, you guys are right, but this is an oversight/abstraction to the action system in general, not the continuous fire rules. Pretty sure the Marines were not usually asked to put their guns down...

    Except that reloading drives the action system in the game, which is a nice tactical addition to the *oG system. Ditch Continuous Fire instead and you preserve a more intersting game mechanic.

    Again, I could be misreading the rules, but I think your example is off:

    should simply be:
    Turn 1: Fire Action
    Turn 2: Reload action

    And in the second example:

    you can scrap turn 7, so...
