Using Blood and Plunder Rules, we pitted four vessels in a Pirate raid. Unfortunately most of my photos were lost. Here is just a few.
A Dutch merchant Fluyt was attempting to reach safe harbor (to the right) when she was set upon by first two, then a third Pirate Sloop. After only two rounds, a newcomer to the game firing his very first cannon salvo, brought down the Dutchmen's main mast! The light breeze is blowing offshore from the bottom of photo and the downed mast will drag the ship towards the shore and its breakers! The loss of the mast will slow the merchant from 12" to 6", virtually assuring the pirate's success!
