Pirate Hexes

Watermarked PDF

This is a new fully revised edition!

Pirate Hexes is a simple fast-paced set of rules for naval combat in the age of sail. It is played with miniatures or cardboard counters on a hex mat. The object of the game is to capture enemy ships and islands. The movement and combat mechanics are simple enough that after playing a short time you will find that no tables or reference sheets are needed, though a one-sided quick-reference sheet is supplied.

Optional rules are included for forts, fog, coral reefs, sargasso seas, sea monsters, whirlpools, treasure islands, neutral treasure ships, prize crews, and more. Other game elements of the player’s own design can be easily plugged in and the rules can be used to re-create historical engagements.

Keep in mind that this is a simple game for having fun. It is suitable for children, beginners, and “beer & pretzel” gaming during late night convention sessions. Despite their simplicity, the rules do reward the employment of intelligent strategy and tactics. The author’s royalties go to charity.

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.
