What do i need?
« on: October 30, 2020, 12:03:23 PM »
Gday
talked a mate into a Pirates game and we have settled on Pieces of Eight even though we know nothing about it.
Going to put an order in for the 2019 Rules and a "starter" set each.
How many Ships will we need each and roughly how many Pirates (roughly)?
Cheers

Hello
Nice to have you join the forum.
Do use a name as it makes the conversation "flow" better.

I suggest you start with the naval part of the pirate rules.


I say this because learning the land raid and sea fight at the same time might be a bit off putting with data overload.

Here are some suggestions that might help.
The sea fight needs about 8 model ships in total (that covers both sides).
My initial thought would be  5 small ships, 2 medium ships and one large ship.
With so few models it would be easy to state that "the MARY is a medium ship for this game", "the JUMPER is a medium merchant ship for this game"   etc

Let me know if  helps?

Aaron,  I hope that you enjoy the game.  The ship game is one of Martins best, once you understand how it goes you'll have some great times.
You will need to make up a hex gridded cloth, we bought ours from Tiny Mats.  Took them a couple of goes to get it right.

As Martin says keep in touch here if you need any help.

Hey Stewart
haven't read the Sea rules yet but have had a good look at the Land rules, crazy really because we mostly got it for sea battles!

I think we'll end up trying to make our own board.
My mate loves cloth ones he does himself but I really like mdf boards I can flock and texture myself. Though with so many projects on the go between us at the moment i'll more than likely end up adding a mat to my Ship/Pirate order at some stage anyway.

Sov
the land raid mat from Peter Pig is good value at 20, If you are short of Pirate town buildings then the town set which includes the mat is very good value at 90.
