54mm pirate action in the classroom.

In this Chapter we see a ship to ship duel and a landing party attacked by the town regulars.

Enjoy and leave a comment for the kids.

Lion's Den very nice set up. Vewry cool as always. where did you get the ships?

The ships are thrift store finds. They are by Simba for the small ship and Zizzle for the Black Pearl (Modified.) I have about nine in all in my collection. I am planning a backyard naval game.

Good action and good pics. I really like the "old school" feel of the cardboard trees.

Looks great. I like the idea of basing the pirates on antique looking coins

Great work Lion's Den.
I have the highest admiration for your drive to introduce the idea of blending games with fair-play, education and creativity.

That was way cool.

@ PaulsB, those coins come from the games "Shooters" (big box of dice and poker chips) and "Yahtzee Texa Hold'em" (another dice and chips game). I am a big BGG thrifter and I repurpose things a lot.

Thanks for the comments guys. I do share the comments with fellow staff and the kids in the Strategy Gaming Club.

Thrift store finds are the best. Good call on the coin-bases.
