Pirate Sails

Watermarked PDF

Pirate Sails is a ultra-lite micro wargame that emulates cutthroat naval battles on the high seas for 2-4 players. Each player takes on the role of 1-4 pirate ships all fighting it out for supremecy of the seas. 

Pirate Sails as a game doesn’t strive to capture complete historical accuracy. Instead, it strives
to bring the excitement and tension of ship-toship battles—made popular in the movies—to your tabletop

A micro wargame is an easy to learn, fast to play, and inexpensive game for fans of wargaming who may not have enough time for a full-blown kitchen table spanning battle. A micro wargame can be played over a lunch break, on a train, on a plane, or just in the comfort of your own home when you have a free minute. All the micro wargames I put out will consist of 5-10 printed sheets of paper: Including rules, 1-2 playing maps, and one sheet of counters.

How does turning work? Can you turn multiple times each movement phase, or do you pick a heading at the beginning of the phase and stick with it?

You can continue turning, but whatever wind effects you began the turn with continue to affect you, potentially inflicting more stress.

Thanks. Are the wind effects cumulative then? For example, if you start with a sidewind, and turn into a headwind, do both affect you at the same time after the second turn?

Original electronic
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.
