What do you think are the best pirate/nautical games being played out there?

As a twenty eight year Navy guy, diver and sailing instructor, I have a bit of a soft spot for maritime themed games. (any one say "really? Who coulda saw that coming?")

Gonna admit; I've got a selfish reason for posting this (trying to get BGG members to make my play list for me)

If you want to return to the kid inside, this one can be a blast...although it will return to the days of being a kid and big plastic toys!

If you are familiar with Wings of Glory: WW1 Rules and Accessories Pack, Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game, or Star Wars: Armada, this takes a similar system and adapts it to the Age of Sail era.

This one is fun, it is not a typical Feld (as in a brain burner) more of a goof off game. The rules make it sound like a more complicated game then it is. Basically run around the board have encounters, when you decide to quit all your pirates need to try and get the best bunk with a roll off.

This one has a lot of supporters but tends to run pretty long. Don't know your preferences for games/game length.

This one is not too bad. Good dice rolling and some take that opportunities make this a good filler. Easy to learn and not much table space needed either. Variable set up also is a plus.

You get to play merchants, pirates, and the navy all at once. Kind of like Merchants & Marauders but much more streamlined. And it comes with metal coins!
