Even after you retire and trade/sell off everything, what will you not get rid of?

I know I am not getting rid of Mist Walker, Roanoke, Philadelphia, Skipping Stone, and a small handful of broken boats.

For me, I'd like to hold onto them as long as I could, I'd only give up my fleet as an inheritance to a younger generation so that the game keeps going. But, if I was forced at pistol-point to give up the majority...those that would stay would be:

HMS Dreadnought
Hornet
Bonhomme Richard
Constitution (RV)
Mist Walker
Behemoth
Celtic Fury

Retire and get rid of everything? I refuse to accept that concept exists.


Even if goes unplayed for the next decade or more (hopefully not), my Pirates collection isn't going anywhere. It'll remain safely on the shelf with all of the other games we own... which will someday be passed onto our kids or someone else that will put them to good once after we can't.

My thoughts exactly. Very Happy

If I HAD to pick my top five things I'd keep, I'd probably go with:

HMS Lord Walpole
HMS Birkenhead (my first two English ships)
HMS Lord Algernon (my favourite ship)
El Acorazado
Either Asesino de la Nave or La Repulsa (in my first two packs along with the Batavian Bat and Muerta de la Corona)

Get rid of them? Never! Still, I do have five favorite ships of all time, all for sentimental reasons:

Libellule - my favorite gold runner
Santa Isabel - first ship, had a lot of fun with this one
El Neptuno - crippled a bunch of enemies at 2L in 2011
El Acorazado - never sunk, much used
HMS Gibraltar - the game I loaded her for war was my best ship-killing game of all time, no joke!

I'm not sure I could get rid of any of my ships, even the ones I never use. Part of this is due to being sort of a pack rat, but it's also because I just love this game so much. But if I had to choose which ones i'd keep:

1. HMS Endeavour - This was my first ship, and the reason I started playing in the first place.

2. HMS Apollo - Both versions. It's simply my favorite ship

3. SRs - Simply because they're fairly difficult to acquire.

4. Anything that comes on a mega card - For obvious reasons, though I can't seem to find them at the moment....

5. This Fleet - It's one of the best fleets I've ever designed for a standard game.

The collection I have put together will remain in my possession until I NEED to sell it to continue living. The only way that could happen is if the Government were to stop functioning.
