  1. Want more details in ship boarding? Try to find the now out of print miltonbradley game Broadsides and Boarding Parties

    Combine the SAVAGE WORLDS RPG for character/hero developement, the strategic campaign element of Pirates CSG, and improved boarding actions detail of Broadsides and Boarding parties resulting in a very complex pirate world.

    you might be able to find a copy really cheap out on the internet.

  3. The Oceans edge packs

    Released on April 18, 2007, “Ocean’s Edge” added Whirlpools as a terrain type, Windcatchers and Catamarans as new ship types, and Sea Dragons and Titans (giant crabs) as new monster types. A 10-masted ship called the Zeus and her captain Emperor Blackheart were available as a mail-in promotion.

    Due to the cancellation of the production back in 2009?……there hasnt been anything new for Pirates CSG…..BUT there are soo many expansion sets available for the game.

    Best place to figure out which sets you may like is to go here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pirates_Constructible_Strategy_Game

    The site will give you a breakdown of what NEW items were added to the game………….would be nice to have forts! I believe we only have the “Pirates of the Spanish Main” set?…not 100% on that….which is the 1st set. Forts were introduced in the “Pirates of the Crimson Coast”.

    Additionally we could MAKE OUR OWN? 😉 maybe some papercraft boats with special stats or simply PROXY a nice model with the ship that you want to field in a game!

    HERE ‘s a nice site that summarizes the game options…and has some house rules:

    HEre is a good site to lookup your NEXT Ship!
    Want to find that ULTRARare ship?…..just use the search engine 😉

  4. About the “At Oceans Edge MEGAPACK”
    According to this discussion https://www.pojo.biz/board/showthread.php?t=472321

    “Each mega-pack has one mega-sized ship, which may be a sea dragon, a windcatcher, or a catamaran. (Any other types I’ve forgotten?) None of these are game-breakers, but they all have their uses, they all look pretty cool (to my eye), and if you want to collect ’em all, you need them just as much as any other cards.

    Since, by my math, there are only six mega ships, you’ll get a lot of doubles if you buy many mega-packs. A lot of FLGS’es don’t stock them, so you’ll probably find plenty of takers if you want to use the extra mega ships as trade bait. Price-wise, there’ s no saving over buying regular packs, except you essentially get the mega ship free.”

  5. hmmmm…..i couldnt find a PNP….at least not at first search.
    I did find that they have a VASSAL Module! Its a boardgame emulator……some are good/OK,,,,,,,,,it doesnt handle enforcement of rules,,,,thus its like the REAL boardgame—just rendered on a computer screen. There is a PLUS to using vassal…..i believe we could theoretically play via internet! Lastly, the modules are FREE…….most are taken down by the manufacturers….but there are still many good modules out there….so check it out. Download and install the Main Vassal App here: http://www.vassalengine.org/download.php

    Here is the Pirates CSG module:

    Ever want to prototype or develop your own game with out wasting alot of paper/money? Do it in VASSAL! 😉
