PIRATE SCENARIO - BATTLEGAMES

Post by charge0.wanadoo.co.uk » Sun Dec 10, 2006 7:44 am

Dear Peter, Yes - it is mine although you are one step ahead of me as I do not have my copy yet. I have been doing the Table Top Teasers since the magazine started. Henry Hyde, the editor, wanted something on the lighter side for Chistmas. I resurrected this one from my first Scenarios book published in 1981. The Ship has now gone, sold at Skelp some years ago, as have most of the pirates. However, the "Willie" French and British and the Foundry natives are still very much a part of my collection and, as I said, they await the opportunity for an island hopping campiagn -Shades of Haite, the Carribean etc. which is one my to do list.

While I am writting, Can you tell me if there is a hotel in Stonehaven where the others are likely to stay in March. yours aye, Charles

Peter,

Look at using coastal tiles to form some of the islands. These are ready made and I believe Colin has some, as does yours truly. They could provide easy to assemble bases fo "burying treasure" and distilling some sugar - "into RUM, lad :lol: :lol: :lol: "

Bob , so far barry and kevin have agreed to make islands for the game. At the moment the plans are to paint some of the 8' x 4' boards to use for the open sea. That then just leaves the ports and these will either be coastal tiles or scratch built.

Gentlemen,

Thank you all for the invitation to join you in Stonehaven for the LOGW pirate shindig. I'd love to come, and I plan to bring along a couple of pirate ships (well, a ship and a brig to be pedantic), filled to the gunwales with the scum of the seas. Long may yer swashes buckle.

I can never remember which is the sharp end and which is the round end. :oops:
Is the Port the same as the front and the starboard the place were important people sleep? What about the Head, is that the top of the mast?
What is a pope deck? where the sailors say mass?

Unless these "Pirates" are sailing under a "marque" from his Gracious Majesty King George then they shall soon all be " dead Pirates" :evil:
(even if His Gracious Majesties Navy have to ally themselves with the Frogs or Spaniards) :shock:

Nautical jargon

Post by Angus Konstam » Sun Dec 17, 2006 12:29 pm

Gentlemen,

During my time in Her Majesty's Navy we were taught that while knowing the difference between Port and Starboard is handy, not knowing which way to pass the port is unforgivable. As long as you get that right, and can drink pink gins with abandon, then using terms like the sharp end and the blunt end are entirely in keeping with the spirit of the Senior Service.

for all the timber-shiverin' rest, I refer you to: www.talklikeapirate.com/piratehome

And as all good landlubbers, my dear Colonel
when you come up on deck to puke,
you will probably stick your nose into the wind,
and when you vomit,
it will spray itself back in yer face. :roll:

Get to the leeward side of the ship - before you puke :wink:

Compliments of the season to you and yours Kevin :D :D
