[Quote] Wooden Ships and Undead Men: The Heart of Davey Jones

At Ocean’s Edge, five squadrons from the Worlds’ great seapowers vie for the key to the true power of the sea: the Heart of Davey Jones.

With the Heart of Davey Jones in your palm, your fleet can command the mythical Flying Dutchman and the terrible Kraken. All that stands between you and absolute dominion over the oceans of the world are Jack Sparrow, the Maelstrom… and four other squadrons who want the same thing – and will kill to seize the Heart of Davey Jones to claim it for their own.

Wooden Ships and Undead Men: The Heart of Davey Jones is a 5 player tournament scenario for Avalon Hill’s classic game of naval warfare in the Age of Sail: Wooden Ships & Iron Men. Using the advanced rules from the original game, supplemented with a few updated scenario rules incorporating the fantastic milieu depicted in Pirates of the Caribbean, this tournament competition promises the nostalgia of a classic wargame and crosses it with an updated theme. The game will be played on an oversized ocean chart using ship miniatures from Wizkids Pirates of the Spanish Main to represent each of the ships in your squadron.

Each of the five players will command a squadron from the English, French, Spanish, American, and Pirate navies. The sixth naval force at Ocean’s Edge, the mysterious Cursed, remains under the control of the game’s referee until the Heart of Davey Jones is seized.

Complete rules, squadron Orders of Battle and your navy’s individual Ship Display Charts will be provided to all players a month in advance of the game.

Some familiarity with the original Wooden Ships & Iron Men is preferred, although not essential if you take the time to familiarize yourself with the rules beforehand.

Time Slot: Thursday August 16, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m..
