So with Long John Silver's parrot you fire 6 shots regardless of cannon or crew numbers?

With Billy Bones' parrot you fire as many shots as you have cannons regardless of crew numbers?

Can someone let me know if this is correct? Seems like Long John had a way better parrot....

That's correct. Long John's Parrot is better.

Considering Long John Silver was behind Billy Bones' death... who do you think had the better parrot?

Some say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice. From what I’ve tasted of desire I hold with those who favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate To say that for destruction ice Is also great And would suffice.

Ah, but if your opponent with Long John Silver's Parrot is nursing a lower crew number, watch his face fall as you play Grappling Attack...

The way that we play, Battle Cards trump Parrots' abilities when they intersect.

Just so you know, that is in direct opposition to the rules: "Long John Silver’s parrot – “Pieces of Eight” – Always roll
6 dice in combat. Long John Silver’s parrot supersedes the
effect of a Grapple attack Battle card."

Also, from the description of the "Grapple attack" card on page 12 of the rule book: "...Billy Bones and Long John Silver's parrots supersede the effect of any grapple attack."
