    The AI performed well enough, but there's always the edge of the world (mat) effect. The Dryade was near the edge of the mat and I had to intervene with a hard turn - either port (downwind) or...

    Bonhomme Richard versus the HMS Isis

    This is my third SoG game where I've graduated up to using the advanced and some of the optional rules. I 'sailed' the Bonhomme Richard while Dobbs' AI took the helm on the Isis.

    The chuffed...

    Got it.

    My ship had a similar encounter with the AI ship - sailed straight into a first shot, raking broadside that blew my ship out of the water. It was my first try with a lot of the optional...

    Links aren't working Dobbs.

    A new version, eh? I'm still stunned by the pummeling (if one, single broadside can be called a pummeling) I got from a one-on-one against your AI. Still need to...

    Glad you liked it, Ferrante. The only reason I know about the battle is that it's one of the scenarios in the old Avalon Hill board game, Wooden Ships and Iron Men. Sad that just four months...

    Perhaps, Rob, perhaps. I did cut down the number of photos (one per move) by 1/4. My back was bothering me when I played the game which may have influenced how I felt about the length.

  19. HMS Swan versus USS Thorn (Reindeer versus Wasp)

    The inspiration for this scenario is the battle between two sloops, the HMS Reindeer and the USS Wasp, during the War of 1812. I've used the Swan and Thorn as suitable substitutes and set it during...

    If I understand correctly I should subtract 2 from each chit's value, so chits with 1 or 2 are treated as '0's. For the sloops with burden = 1, only chits that are 3 and above are 'hits' on the...
