Description Edit | History

From book:

Welcome to the latest chapter in the VBAM Series: the Victory by Any Means: Fire As She Bears! Edition. In these source materials we explore the exciting world of naval combat at the height of the Age of Sail. It is a time when England’s “Wooden Walls” kept her commerce alive and the armies of Napoleon at bay. A time when tall, proud warships prowled the vast waterways of the world, and such ships as the U.S.S. Constitution were to earn their place as legend.

For those of you who are new to either Victory by Any Means or Starboard Tack Press products, welcome! This game is modeled after the popular Victory by Any Means: Campaign Guide, and has been carefully developed and tested to fit the unique feel of the Age of Sail. By using the Origins Award (2005 Vanguard) winning Fire As She Bears! game as our tactical system, we can finally give gamers a fluid product that lets you worry about important decisions and planning of the Admiralty. For this latest source, the VBAM team has worked with Phil C. Fry, the author of the popular Napoleonic tactical naval game Fire As She Bears! to bring you a supplement which enables you to fight the war at sea as the Admiralty of a nation, subject to the whims of the crown and to generate gritty battles where sailing skills and cunning decide the fate of the battle.

This is a stand alone book that requires no other VBAM Games products to play, although Starboard Tack Press’ Fire As She Bears! Second Edition is highly recommended for a complete Age of Sail experience.
