Polaris + helmsman, explorer, oarsman
The game featured a few pieces of terrain and three wild islands placed in the center.
The Polaris was the first ship to explore. The Batavian Bat turned out to be a surprisingly good choice of gunship since the other two gunships in the game had exclusively L-range guns.
The Bat has knocked a mast off the Freedom's Hand, while the San Pedro has emptied an island. The Polaris is back with gold, and Fleet 2 has drained an island using all three ships.
The Batavian Bat was then able to dismast the Freedom's Hand, but she kept rowing, desperate to dock home her gold.
The San Pedro returns as the Freedom's Hand sinks:
The Muninn can't hit the Bat, but she goes 4 for 4 against the LEdA.
Knowing she probably won't sink the Templar with her inaccurate cannons and because the Templar was within S rowing range of her HI, the Bat engages the Muninn, winning the ram roll but losing her helmsman in the boarding.
With all L-range guns, the Muninn decides to utilize her smokebank/reverse captain combo. Sinking the LEdA, the Muninn then ducks into a smokebank to avoid the Bat.
The game soon ended with the Augusta and Polaris bringing home the final coins!
Fleet 1: 17 gold
Fleet 2: 5
Fleet 3: 6
