It is coming up to my 52nd birthday and I am starting out in the online world (I'm getting a bit too old to remain in the sea lanes). I registered here on BGG and my Dad suggested that I might create a geeklist with my current top 10 games.

I have over 30 years of pyrate experience but I be a woeful boardgamer. arrrh

And so here is my current top 10, listed in order from 1 to 10...
(not this crazy backwards ffuts)

A proud game for pyrates. The ships be a little smaller than in real life, and the mast be a little shorter - but there is something about the game that is familiar and that familiarity brings with it a level of comfort.

After the impersonal environment created in ship to ship combat it is nice to get to know your enemy in an "up close and personal" situation. However, I don't know any real pyrates who dress up like the dandies on the cover of this Yaquinto game. One of the real hardships as a pyrate captain be keeping your ostrich feathers clean both during battle and between battles.

Amongst us real pyrates Blackbeard, or Crazy Ted as those of us in the business call him, is a bit of an outcast. A sociopath like him only gives the rest of us a bad name. And wearing burning tapers in your beard - real pyrates don't have the time to muck around with that type of piffle when there be real work to be done.

As this 'ere ol' pyrate nears the end of his pyratin' days it be nice to reminisce with ol' friends. We looks forward to our ol' pyratin' buddy, Sir 'enry, having his annual sailboat race around 'is island.

It might come as a surprise to ye, but we pyrates have a well developed sense of fun - we are not always the schwarze-hearted villains that the media portray us as. When playing boardgames we like to speak with funny voices and accents and love games with German names so that we can speak with German accents as we play.

From a professional point of view I'm horrified at the amount of historical inaccuracy and misinformation that is presented in Hollywood movies about we pyrates. It did my heart good to discover this game which pokes fun at B-grade pyrate movies - cause that be all them movies B-good for.

We pyrates love our gamblin' and what better way to gamble than with cards - and what better cards to use than these pyrate-themed cards. Some of me crew actually posed for the artwork.

Some of the games that we pyrates play in between lootin' ships actually help us sharpen our skills and improve our performance in real-life situations. This one really needs well developed interpersonal skills such as lyin', cheatin', trickin' and deceivin' - I be the pyrate that usually wins this one.

And what would pyratin' be without a wench or two. Some of the best games that a pyrate can play need a wench or three.
