Subject: Thread of Threads   PostPosted: Mon Feb 23, 2015 12:47 am Reply with quote

Welcome to the thread of threads! Instead of using the search function (which can be frustrating and occasionally unworkable) to find old threads, this is a place where you can find tons of different resources and past threads. Also, some of these threads fit into multiple categories, so the first category is where you'll find a thread since I didn't want to repost any of them.

I actually haven't had time to look at most of the older threads from before I got here, but I used my best judgment. If your favourite thread isn't here make a post and I'll add it to the list!

Finally, I could really use some help from some of the veterans of the forum (lord_denton, woelf, holofernes, rizz, captain_arrr, old_man, flinxrap, dholub1, lordstu, bootstrapbill, phymatine, vosarnath, cmdrcody, etc.) for threads that I've missed. Anything you can contribute would be much appreciated!

Rules/FAQ:

Rules Thread (Pretty much all you need - the links to the Pirate Code (the official FAQ), Master Keyword List and Pirates Reference Diagrams are all linked in the thread.) (Old Rules thread for reference)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As lord_denton mentioned awhile back, apparently you can't go past page 47 of the forums. There are 56 total pages, but most of the last 10 pages are just posts by wapcaplets posting links to the defunct Wizkids site and sneak peeks at the sets that were coming out.

One of the biggest things I noticed is how the direction of the forum has changed. Back when new sets were still coming out, a lot of threads were concerned with the new sets and how people were going to collect them. old_man and holofernes dominated the boards and now there are almost no threads about collecting, eBay, and especially about the rarer pieces.

They used to do a fleet challenge once a week - sounds crazy now, doesn't it? It's fun to read about the old collecting buzz, but I like that today we talk more about the game itself (Battle Reports, Rankings, RPPD, Rules Thread, etc.).

This brings back a lot of memories!


You must have been working on this for a really long time, or you were incredibly bored for a weekend or something. Very impressive work!

Thanks. With my recent MT binge it actually was quite fun (rather than work) and I really enjoyed looking at a lot of the old discussions. It didn't take an obscene amount of time because I went pretty fast on purpose - which is why I said I definitely missed some good threads. Also, I knew some of the old topics from memory and therefore didn't look at entire threads (usually just the first page). I myself would like to spend some more time looking at these threads!

Subject: My version of a Pirates CSG Solitaire   PostPosted: Wed Apr 08, 2015 3:53 am Reply with quote

Hey everyone!

I figured this thread would be the best place to drop the solitaire game I've been working on, so here it is!

https: // dl.dropboxusercontent .com/u/24229476/piratescsg/nickster5000_piratescsg_solitairerules_version1.pdf

(I'm not allowed to posts links D: ! All you have to do is just piece the url that I broke apart above together. )

I'm still working on it, but I think it's good enough to show the progress, and a game will work. I'm still working on it, so i'm open to all feedback. Thanks for checking this out guys![url=]link text[/url]

By request from Captain Vendari, I am unlocking and pinning this valuable thread.

Although, sometimes the stickies at the top become so much a centerpiece of the forum that we forget that they are there (There are currently 5 stickied threads - can you name them without looking at them? Wink ) so I'm trying to be careful that we don't get too many up there. The stickies also tend to clutter the front page. I think this thread is a keeper but if anyone has feedback on it being stickied, let us know!

Woelf and I once talked of rebooting the grand-but-cumbersome 101-page rules thread with a streamlined, third incarnation. If we ever get around to doing that, maybe we could incorporate this thread into that thread. If you don't mind, A7xfanben.

Also, sorry about my general absence the past weeks. Sad

I still have an open, on-going update to the Pirate Code in the works. Right now I'm mostly just adding or tweaking little bits here and there as they come up, like those clarifications with Trees and crabs a few days ago (they'd been clarified/ruled on long ago, but were still missing from the PC).


Whenever I finally get that finalized and uploaded, that would be a good break point for starting a new rules thread.

Speaking of sticky threads, the mistakes repository could probably go away now that regular users of the site are able to make corrections to the gallery.


Someone just needs to give the thread a quick look-through to make sure everything in it has already been covered, then it can be cut loose and left to drift away.

First off, thanks for the sticky! Very Happy

I have two questions that possibly only the admin can answer:

1. Is there a way to change the formatting of the website a tiny bit so that the stickies are in their own section (still at the top, however) of the Pirates CSG forum page?

Even just a small blank space the height of a regular thread would help distinguish the threads and make it easier to see what the top non-sticky discussions are. I think this would help with the clutter and make us less hesitant about how many stickies there are, since we do need some.

2. Can sticky threads be permanently unlocked?

That is, they remain open to replies after any amount of time (not just 2 months).

Either way, if Repository is unstickied (smoothed out? lol) then we'd have 5 Sticky Threads again.

I don't mind, but what do you mean by rebooting the Rules Thread?

Ahhh, just read woelf's comment again and I think I understand better now. The third Rules Thread would be for new questions left unanswered by the new Pirate Code. That way woelf would easily be able to find questions to add to the next edition. (If we need one - I'll have to start scheming and thinking up more questions! Twisted Evil Razz )

I just read the "Pirates: Back to War" set. It seems functional as an independent set, but it would heavily upset the fragile balance of the released sets.

The good news is that it can act like a loose guideline on what to avoid in my custom set! Laughing

I remember that set. A lot of effort was put into it and it's a great thing to read and see the artwork and actual cards. However, yes it is overpowered.
