I bought this game very cheap via Ebay before I read the poor reviews of it...could anyone suggest a way to improve the ship to ship combat of this game..I think destroying an enemy ship should involve a bit more than just sailing into its space..I was thinking about downloading the "Trafalgar" ship cards from the "Enemy in Sight" page and somehow using them to determine the outcome of ship to ship battle..if anyone could add any suggestions I would be grateful..
Old enough to know better
Keep movement the same but add these rules for combat:
Ships can fire at right angles once per turn.
Roll 1d6 to hit.
In the square next to the ship, 5 or 6 sinks it, in the next square 6 sinks it.
If you get a rake on a ship add 1 to the dice roll.
