HMS Morning Star, The Mega Review
written by joshua_hislop  on February 10, 2011
Introduction

This is an experiment I'm trying out; the Mega-review. It's only for ships with multiple versions throughout time that can be easily tracked through their Flavor Text. (Like the Morning Star, Lezard, and Sea Phoenix) It's a wild...

Maman Brigitte, All aboard the failboat!
written by hissanrach  on August 18, 2010
General description:
Maman Brigitte. The name of this Cursed vessel might have gotten your interest. If not that, it was the chilling sight of the rotting, putrid ship. Something with such a nice name and something that looks so awesome must be...

Review of the Week for March 26, 2011
General description:
Frankly, I find it unbelievable no version of El Fantasma has been reviewed before here at MT. Old 'Tazzy is a mainstay of the game, and has appeared in more sets than any other crew, with his abilities only getting more...

Rook's Folly, Possession is nine-tenths of the law!
written by bookwyrm  on January 25, 2011
General description:
Ah, the possession ability. First seen in Pirates of Davy Jones' Curse, it was quickly written off as a useless gimmick. A possessor needed to sacrifice his entire turn for a 1-in-6 chance of capturing a crew while leaving...

written by captain_nemo  on October 24, 2010
General description:
There were a few good things that came out of the long Ocean’s Edge set. (When I say a few, I mean a FEW). While there were two six masters, the Zeus, and those cute two segmented sharks, none created as much fear as those...

written by arrowyo  on August 24, 2009
General description:
The Deliverance in my opinion is one of the better 5 masts for the pirates, especially against the cursed with its ability combined with its link. Believe me when i say that the Deliverance can deliver you to your death (heh...

written by wapcaplets  on December 16, 2005

As I said in my review about the Sleigh, this is quite possibly the coolest promotional crew I've ever seen. For those who don't know, this crew was part of a ship/crew combo with the Sleigh that was given to WizKids envoys as...

Review of the Week for February 5, 2011
General description:
One of only 2 catamarans in the entire Pirates world, this ship is rarely seen, but can have a large impact. I would never have used it myself had I not pulled it in 2 straight sealed tournaments. I was pleasantly surprised...

written by mastercommander  on November 25, 2009
