Sorry this isn't directly related to the Pirates CSG game.

I've always enjoyed reading and was recently on a kick of reading classical adventure stories like The Lost World, Treasure Island, and King Solomon's Mines. I happened into Pirates CSG by chance, and fell in love with the concept and execution of the game. In summer 2010, I was looking for Magic: The Gathering cards to play against my future brothers and father in law. The store I was in had a Pirates! display and I was hooked.

Anyway, I was able to get an assortment of Mysterious Islands cards. Those got me interested in Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues beneath the sea. It's right in line with the type of stories I have recently come back to reading but for some reason it had not been on my list of books I needed to read. (It's in my pile of summer reading now).

Fast forward to the present day: in August, my fiancée and I will be moving to Nunavut. I need some new hobbies to pass the dead of the (LONG) winter there. I've gotten more and more into games and gaming with her family. A game that is new to me has caught my eye. The game is called "Nemo's War", and it is published by Victory Point Games.

I am interested because the theme is appealing to me, and it has a solitaire gameplay option, which I'll need in Nunavut.

Has anyone played this game? What'd you think?

Thanks for your comments,
Scott

I haven't played it, but I like Verne stories. You should read Mysterious Island. It is the best in my opinion. Tag that with Search of the Castaways and you've completed the Nemo Trilogy.

I couldn't resist. I have ordered the Nemo's War game and the expansion kit. I'm looking forward to playing.

I also just purchased Merchants & Marauders, which I have heard good things about. Looks like it'll be a Pirate! summer, Yarrrrrr. Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

Let us know what you think of Nemo's War. I'd never heard of it before now, but it looks interesting.

Awesome game! If you've ever played Sid Meier's Pirates!, you're going to love M&M. Even if you haven't, you'll probably still really like it. Very Happy

M&M...now that would be a game I want! Very Happy Woelf has said nothing but good things about it, and the review on BGG looks great.
