Galleys and Galleons [3]

I was really pleased to get an email from Nic Wright, author of Galleys and Galleons, yesterday to which was attached both the current draft of the rules and a QRS. A big thank you to Nic for adding me into the play testing team!

I now have a much better idea of what I need to get some playtesting underway, with the scenarios and campaign system in mind. I already have seven Peter Pig ships assembled and based but need some extra bits before I can run something at the club.

The shopping list includes:

* some scratchbuilt shoals and small islands.
* a scratchbuilt harbour or small port.
* a section of coastline.
* a scratchbuilt coastal fort or battery.
* some wreckage markers.
* some templates to represent shallows.
* a couple of extra ships to make full use of the rules.
* some measuring sticks.

All not too much trouble to put together and with lots of opportunity for some gratuitous mucking about with bits of mdf, plastic card, glue, filler and paint! I've ordered a small selection of extra ships and guns from Peter Pig and will get scratchbuilding the other stuff when I get home.
