Anyone know where to find a copy of Donnybrook rules? I'm still looking for a good set of Pirate rules.

If you're looking for a "good" set of Pirate Rules, you need to try "Blood & Plunder from Firelock Games. I've a few dozen, and this is my go-to set.

Donnybrook will work, but I don't like the sailing rules.

Good luck!

Donnybrook is a great for pirate games. Tried Blood and Plunder but it is quite slow and you have to track activations and fatigue. The rules for ships are not very good, much prefer those in Donnybrook at Sea

Haven't played B&P but can attest to Donnybrook. They are a good set for pirate skirmish.
