So, I've had a great year. These 2 images were from the most fun points:

1) First time using a catamaran. First time having the Explosives UT. Good bye untouched SAT Captain/Helmsman Le Soleil Royal!



2) This one needs no description, only a title: Skin of Your Teeth!!!



Thanks!

Looks like the Soleil Royal?

For the second picture, is that a custom 5 master or does the Pequod have some kind of extra mast?

You know what, you're completely right. :p That is the Soleil Royal, my mistake. The player in the group is just so well known for using the Enterprise, that I assumed. xD I'll fix that now.

That one is the second picture is the Pequod, yes. Good eyes. Its player received 2 matching cards in the pack he pulled it from, rather than the proper back section, I believe he said.

Last call for pictures! I'll give this 2 or 3 more days before I start the poll.

My first favorite picture (chronologically) this year was this. I have a silly scenario idea that resolves around Krakens. Due to taking to long to try and properly write up the game, and desiring to use the rules for a fleet challenge, I've been rather mum on the game.

Play-testing the rules the first time was a ton of fun, because I designed multiple fleets, with multiples core strategies for my scenario. And one of them turned out to be rather overpowered. Not so much because it was scenario breaking, but because I forgot to give many L-cannons to any other nation. My Le Bonaparte was left fairly well unchallenged, or so I thought. Different fleets went for different counter plays, and not all of them played out, but it really threw me off when I realized how many nations had 4, or less L-range cannons, and it made me think on my toes, a few times over.

It was the Cursed, led by the Divine Dragon and Skin Flayer that managed to not only derelict Le Bonaparte, but also steal her valuable treasure. Granted, the Cursed still fell to the French, but I was still mighty proud of them.



For my second picture, I can't help but chose this one of my sister's cake. It is just so well done, I can't help but want to show it off constantly.
