Bloody Close Quarters


Bloody Close Quarters

Miniatures Rules for Fighting the Last Desperate Moments of a Naval Battle in the Golden Age of Piracy

Both fleets are in ruins. Your ship is the only one left seaworthy on your side, though its sails are in tatters and its hull is badly damaged. The enemy is down to one ship as well - in the same precarious condition as yours. As you slowly drift past each other, exhausted, you frantically load your remaining cannons & position the handful of men who are still standing. The final battle has begun!

Bloody Close Quarters is a ship-to-ship combat game set in the Golden Age of Piracy - around the year 1700.  The game works best with 25-30mm figures, though it can be played with the counters provided. It lets you skip to the best part of a naval game - “bloody close quarters” ship-to-ship combat!

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
