That funny feeling some of us have been having? Well, first Pyramid goes to a monthly pdf, now WizKids is kaput. Nothing like dying from the Topps down. I'm resisting any urge to go all doom n' gloom here (hey, this isn't exactly unheralded in the history of gaming), but my daughter and I did have a lot of fun playing with those little pirate ships. When she was three (she's four now), we even made our own rules:
Our Pirate Game Rules:
1) We each pick between 3 and 5 ships.
2) On your turn, you can move a ship three little spaces (aka inches).
3) If you are that close to a ship that isn't yours, you can fight! If it is a 1,2, or 3, I win and sink your ship! If it it is 4,5, or 6, you win and sink my ship!
4) If you sink a ship, you get a piece of gold! Whoever has the most gold at the end of the game wins! The game is over when one of us is out of ships!
Pretty complicated, I know, but she's kind of a rules lawyer....
