Lord Al (who played in the Game) and Baxter Key hosted Turkey WARS at the Shop. There were lots of games. I was allowed to escape from the house of relatives and put on my Pirates game. This is a mini version of the Premier Nashcon 2010 game which will run on a 20 foot board. Here we had an eight by six albeit with fewer ships. The object was to capture and hold Skull Island. The pirates who were first ashore were attacked by cannibals but eventually made their way inland and held the island till the end. Skull Island was placed smack in the center of the board which resulted in a wild circular melee. That ended when the wind shifted. The boats paired off and had at it. Major Bill captured another ship when all the crew were killed off. Pete held the island till the end although his crew were being killed in droves. This was a lot of fun. The rules stood up and I will fine tune a bit and then run them up. And Oh yes, here are some photos. The boats are various sources. Several are full hulled ships that I waterlined. The pirates are all 28mm from various brands. AAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHH.
