A little thought experiment:

Without really thinking about it, which item comes to mind first when you think of all ships in the game?

Record your response immediately!! Without looking at other responses!

Ship? (first thing that comes to mind, go, you already thought of one or you're not doing it right!)
Named crew?
UT?
Fort?
Generic crew?
Set?

Go!































My answers:
Ship: San Cristobal or Banshee's Cry (oh well XD)
Named crew: Admiral Morgan
UT: Lost
Fort: Paradis de la Mer
Generic crew: Shipwright (no idea why, I hardly use them haha)
Set: Crimson Coast (probably since I was just looking at some CC stuff on eBay)

Ship: Sea Nymph
Named crew: Captain Blackheart
UT: Manawa no Kowhatu
Generic crew: Shipwright

Interesting thought experiment. I do this with my brothers sometimes, one of us says a word, and then the next says the first thing that pops into our heads right after. It can be quite fun.

Flying Dutchman
Ralph David
Missionary
The Devil's Maw
Captain
Rise of the Fiends

Probably because that version of the FD is on my table where I'm sorting pieces atm
Used him in a fleet
New pull
I looked up how the Maw interracted with SAC
The most important, even when planning weaker fleets to show friends the game
I guess it might be that bright red. Always draws attention

Go!


Slarge Gubbit--One of my first ships, given as a gift by some awesome waiter at a pirate themed restaurant

Named Crew--RoF Calico Cat, for obvious reasons...(that misprint doe)

Fort--Thompsons Island-- 'cus I had an airsoft tommy gun

UT--Message in a Bottle--OE was TOO common...

Generic Crew--Helmsman. Lets face it, he makes your bad ships better, and your great ships greater, Hell, he makes YOU better....

Set--Spanish Main or DJC (two of my fav and firsts). The OG set that kicked off everything we hold dear, and the one with the cool looking Sea Monsters.

Ship - Constitution
Named crew - Mademoiselle Josephine Godiva
UT - Gem of Hades
Fort - Thompson's Island
Generic crew - Captain
Set - Revolution

These are all the cards I have pulled and liked, with the exception of the Constitution which is my most wanted ship. I have the USS Constitution, but I really want the old girl from the Revolution set.

She is indeed a beast and I hope to have her one day. But, she also holds a special place in my heart as I have actually stood on her deck which was such an awesome experience.

Ship L'Aube

Probably because she was my first 5 master so I used her frequently as my flag ship, my second thought was the Chum Maker because she was my pride and joy for so long being the only mail in promo I ever got.

Named crew: El Fantasma Really not any particular variant of him just his character in general.
UT: Witch's Brew , I guess because my brother and I used this quite often we we played.
Fort: Thompson's Island
Generic crew Helmsman
Set: Rise of the Fiends
