I have 16 action cards, 4 scenario cards and 2 new captains in draft for an upcoming war against the pirates. The cards feature bombing raids against pirate hidden bases, boarding actions,bombing some helpless bridges and taking some flak! Pirate captain action cards make your next encounter with pirates tougher than ever. Anybody want anything specific as I am nudging towards 20 cards to keep the variant challenging.

I'll send along the blanks that I doctored up from Todd's original files once I get home from work this eve - can't wait to see them

Also, interested to see if you had the same trouble I did in making the original text actually fit within the limited card space - the card text I origianlly had drafted was more flavorful, but became much more to the point as I parsed them down to size

yes.i have had to pear it down.But i am going to use an extra page of rules to cover-flak,bombing,boarding etc so that i do not have to repeat the wording on each card.

All the rules have been done and drafted into cards. Playtested them a few times and all looks good. Unfortunately getting the art is a real pain. Have approached some designers here on bgg offering free services to get their portfolio one up but no luck so far.
