Review of the Week for February 27, 2010
Silver Coffin, the crazy potshotter...
written by frenchdude  on October 9, 2009
General description:
Today, I am going to review the Cursed, super rare Silver Coffin. Although the Minuteman is the better buy, I thought I would at least give this box of bolts a chance. Let's hope it doesn't disappoint me. You're not going to...

Review of the Week for February 20, 2010
Venture, The original treasu- KABOOM!
written by woelf  on February 9, 2010
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained. The Venture carries more gunpowder than she should in order to double pack her guns for better range. But that makes her a potential fireworks display."

General description:
For my first non-Spanish review,...

El San Jose
written by vladsimpaler  on December 28, 2007
General description:
This is Part II of my "Often Underlooked Spanish ships", and what a doozy this one is! Personally, I can see why this ship is overlooked. First of all, it was one of 3 Spanish ships in PotR, and there was also La Santa Isabel,...

Review of the Week for February 6, 2010
Angelica
written by lordstu  on December 24, 2009
General description:
Sea Dragons like Angelica are the "elite special forces" of Pirates, they have specific roles to play, such as lightning-fast hit-and-run tactics, but they are not designed to operate outside of those roles for an extended...

Review of the Week for January 30, 2010
General description:
Okay, after I saw cleverpun's review, I knew there was more than just treasure hauling in this hoist's future. The Philadelphia was missing a key part that I didn't realize until recently: "...Once you explore a derelict ship,...

Review of the Week for January 23, 2010
La Manila, It's Craptacular!
written by flungus  on November 25, 2009
General description:
In short I've decided to do a series of reviews on ships that I own that at first seem somewhat useless. So I've decided to try and find some ways to un-useless these ships, because it's not how mighty your ship is it's how...

Review of the Week for January 16, 2010
General description:
As I mentioned in my "Lock Stock & a-Haulin Biancos" fleet, I stumbled across a review of the HMS London that said, "The Special Ability doesn't seem that useful", and I was surprised because up until the DPotC came out, the...

Demon Gate, What I Like to Call "Mixed Up"
written by silverbeak  on June 6, 2009
General description:
I call it "mixed up" for reason. I mean, just look at the info on the card. Well... never mind I'm the one writing the review, so I'll explain. Junk is only good for fighting, but look at those cannons 3S, 4L are not worthy to...

Review of the Week for January 2, 2010
Maurice Aristide, Money for Nothin' and...
written by lordstu  on October 10, 2009
General description:

"Hiding behind a ridiculous facade of heavy court makeup and a high wig, Maurice Aristide appears every bit the foppishly perfumed and helpless French courtier. In truth, he is a brilliant businessman with the knowledge both...

Pyre, Sailing Under Your Nose, And Your Islands!
written by captain_nemo  on November 24, 2009
General description:
When I first saw the two hull piece, PR submarine Pyre, I was very excited that there was a submarine for the cursed. They don't happen to have the best technology of the nations and this is a big plus for them. Another great...

Review of the Week for December 19, 2009
HMS Apollo, Really Letting It's Self Go
written by captain_nemo  on November 18, 2009
General description:
I love to see how ships evolve from pack to pack and in HMS Apollo's case it went from a two masted sloop in the revolution to a five masted battleship. Then that's when it happened, it lost something in the gene pool...

Review of the Week for December 12, 2009
General description:
Now this is a wacky new mechanic. I thought a flame cannon was cool, but now we've got something for the treasure end of the strategy scale. A hoist can explore (for free) once a turn anything her hoist touches, can change...

Review of the Week for December 5, 2009
Asesino de la Nave, -A Forgotten Classic
written by woelf  on November 4, 2009
General description:
Over the course of more than a dozen sets the game of Pirates has seen countless different ships come and go, and of those only a select few from Spanish Main still see action regularly. While the lucky ones grew stronger with...

Le Ciel Bleu, Support Ships can be Beauties
written by riverbarge  on October 30, 2007
General description:
It seems Wizkids’ artists agreed on a few things in the beginning. Pirates almost never change out their sails, but the British and Spanish are clean fellows—always with a few fresh sails in the hold. (Some ships in the...

Review of the Week for November 21, 2009
Shap'ng Tsai, How did this crew even get past playtesting?
written by vladsimpaler  on September 19, 2009
General description:
To preface, I'm surprised that there wasn't more "hublah" about this crew. Though the game was literally sinking, if the game would have kept going on, I'm sure that Mr. Tsai would've gotten much more press!

Let's face it;...

HMS Titan, Now you see the Titan, Now you don't see your ship
written by mrsticks  on August 25, 2009
General description:
With good cannon rolls, 5 masts, a nice ability, and a somewhat dangerous reputation, the HMS Titan delivers unparalleled performance in deathmatch and gold-hunting scenarios. Unfortunately, reputation comes at a price, , many...

Review of the Week for November 7, 2009
Wraith, now recruiting.....
written by burnthills  on August 25, 2009
General description:
With a relatively low cost and high potential to do damage, I'm surprised Wraith has not been considered more. Note the text states "Whenever any crew is eliminated, roll a d6" which means you can try to capture crew anytime....

Review of the Week for October 31, 2009
La Espada de Dios, "The Sword of God"... more like "The Sword of Gold"
written by proud_tortoise  on August 25, 2009
General description:
Ok so at first look this ship seems to be a old "ben there done that" galley with cannons that are mediocre. But with the release of better spanish crew in later later series after Barbary Coast, this ship now has a lot of...

Review of the Week for October 24, 2009
Enterprise, This awesome gunship just got more deadly
written by murunner20  on October 5, 2009
General description:
This is my first review so any pointers, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

I absolutely love this ship; this is my favorite ship in the game hands down. At first glance, especially for me, I wasn’t too blown...

Review of the Week for October 17, 2009
HMS Europa, - England's Ace in the Hole
written by woelf  on October 9, 2009
General description:
HMS Europa is single-masted ship that appeared all the way back in the very first set, Spanish Main. But, as long as it has been around it has never seen much action in "competitive" fleets, and for good reason. With only one...
