Pirates: Trifecta

Posted 4-11-07

I’m FINALLY getting this thing posted. Aaron didn’t like the soundtrack selection for my previous Pirates video, so he made me a custom score. It rocked, even though I asked for a 1.5-minute track and he gave me a 3-minute track. I had to do some quick editing, but I think it turned out fine. I’ll say this, and Aaron agrees…you won’t find a better soundtrack in any homemade video. Ever.

This was Aaron’s first game with us and he did pretty good. I lucked out by getting put in a great location for my home island, while Aaron and Chad were both shoved together in the far corner. I already had gold at my home island before either of them could reach an unexplored island.

I, by far, encountered the greatest tragedies. I had 5 ships at the start of the game, and by the end I was just staying alive with 1 lone treasure runner. And, unfortunately, I didn’t get to fire one single shot.

Because of my placement advantage, I ended up winning the game with the highest amount of gold on my home island when we reached our time limit. The specifics are noted in the video below.

    Very nice!

    One thing you guys should know, as per the official rules, you have to start with your ships docked. That means the BOWS must be touching your home islands, not the stern as in your setup.

    I would really like to see a game that includes a turn-by-turn analysis. Seeing it go by so quickly is a shame.

    Keep up the good work!
