August 2014 Pirates Giga Bites with George Condo

Used a Bit of LOTHS and Black Powder (but need the whole LOTHS next time - left the book at home LOL) Now I see why folks are so keen on PDF rules and tablets, laptops, etc!!

George Condo joined me for a game of Pirates


Commodore's Bonaventure Condo exchanges fire with the Governor's ship the Purcell




Ready to repel the invading pirates





One of the Garrisons ancient weapons opens fire






The Island awaits



Commodores Marines


Natives repel the Governor's ship Purcell



Governor's Guard assaults the Artillery



The Governor's Black Legion



The Pappelis captures th Bonaventure


The British Garrison


The Bonaventure Crew makes chase


The Purcell

St Giga Coves Castle Ruins


The Governor's Guard Rushing the Hovey Artillery


Blunder Mover by the Governors' Yacht


The lowland dock area below the St Giga Cove Castle


Commodore Condo steals away with a captured longboat





Condo's Privateer Marines have switched sides


The captured Bon Homme Richard attempts to make chase after one of its fleet


Seems a lot of ships changed sides during this game not sure who actually won
But Commodore Condo did capture 3 ships and lost 2 so perhaps it was a narrow victory


Condos Marines attempt to recapture the Bonaventure





The Commodore and his marines (what are left anyway)
 makes off with the drydocked leaky HMS Giga's Scurvy Wench
