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?
I have discussed this with Mathue and when back from Essen, I will post this as an official 2-Player Variant. It works so well that all 2 player gamers need to know this becomes a very good option for Francis Drake.
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
