When I bought the game at Essen, the designer promised me to release his official 2p variant in a couple of weeks. Any news on when we can expect it?
n a related note: if it won't appear, did anyone write up the existing 2p variant in a document?

Thanks

Manuel,

It has been available for some time in the Variants forum for Francis Drake. There is also a solo variant listed there.

Here is a link to the 2-player variant: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/1035134/2-player-variant...

Thanks for your support of Eagle-Gryphon Games

That's Mathue's variant right?
With some discussion as to what Peter might do or how a way might decide on. As far as I understand there are still some official rulings etc.

I still would prefer to have an officially official variant

Peter's already endorsed it as an official variant.

Kayal Games and Eagle Games are releasing a boxed expansion in the next few months for the 2 and 6 player versions.

The playtesting for the 6 player version is what is taking time - checking the numbers of resoureces on all the Plymouth Location Tiles. Nearly finished now, then 2-3 months for artwork and production. A full set of components, including ships, treasure chest, ship log and player bits for the 6th plater are included as well as rules for 6 players and extra guns crew etc, included.

The rules for 2 players have been tweaked slightly from what was previously posted
