Hi all,

A few times already I am looking up all sort of old games trying to find the game I once played. But I can't find it nor even get my mind straight to remember the name.

It was a game about ships (pirates, nations in a pirate-era).

We played it with 6 people I thought. We all had a reference card with all the info in front of us. It stated all the stats of my ships and all. When it was my turn I could choose an opponnent and shoot at him following my reference card.

That's all I remember, and the fact that is was cool, nice and fun. I guess its from Avalon Hill but I seriously can't remember.

I played this game around 1997 or 1998. But even then it was already an old game I thought.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

As grey traces of dawn tinge the eastern sky, the three travellers, men of Willowdale, emerge from the forest's shadow. Fording the river, they turn south, journeying into the dark and forbidding lands of The Necromancer...

Could it be Enemy in Sight, perhaps?

The year isn't right, but maybe it's Pirate's Cove?

Another option might be Spanish Main.

Do you remember anything else?

I really think it is Enemy in Sight. The year could be right. Because it was already old in 1997 (originally its from 1988). Its not Pirates Cove, that one I know. It also isnt Spanish Main.

The thing I remember is that you dont have a playing map. All players have something in front of them that he uses. And its an old game. And I just saw that Enemy in Sight is reprinted, maybe I can get a hold of one.

You're thinking of Lord of the Rings: Pirates, clearly.
