    Cheers! Yes, I always think Burden is under costed, as it really makes ships more survivable in a fire-fight, especially at long range. At shorter range, those orange chits have more big damage...

    As I understand it, you put a damage marker in the special damage box, then at the start of each subsequent turn (until the fire is extinguished) - you fill a fresh box with a fire marker, and shift...

    Yes, my sympathy to all those affected, and thanks to the excellent emergency services. I hope this is the last such attack we suffer, though sadly, I doubt it. :cry:

    I always wondered if firing a full broadside, and splitting the total chits randomly between the 2 targets might not be a bad way to go if shooting at 2 targets, or use the rear shooting arc total,...

    I will have to look at the charts, but envision the 74 chart will work well enough. I found in one game I used the 74 chart for frigates and never noticed!!!

    Hi all, I have tweaked the solo rules to match what I think all of us who use it are already doing, in that it now allows the solo ship to shoot from its forward arc.
    The rules can be downloaded...

    Trying an 1814 'what if'

    Over the weekend, I had a quick go at Sails again, pitting 2 38 gun frigates against the Constitution, historically it was in early 1814, when Constitution was sighted by two British 38 gun frigates...

    I may do mine too, as its amazing how many time ship manoeuvres put them across the log!, I can do it on the old big wings of war cards, but the sails ones are harder!!!
