Today we had another try at Galleys and Galleons, to see if a couple of changes would make a better game.
To see if they did, please go to this link

I like your island scenery. As for Galleys and Galleons, I bought it, read and ran thru a playtest of the mechanics but I wasn't a fan.

Nice little game, definitely do something with activation

I rather like the rules. They work best with players commanding 2-3 ships each. Some minor tweaks to taste can be in order!

I am torn between semi liking it and disliking it due to the activation system.
I have never liked the all or nothing activation system, which makes no sense to me whatever.
Black Powder put me off immediately for the fireworks display as some units moved 3 times, and for no good reason others did nothing.
I respect some folks do like these games, but I am definitely not one of them!
I am so looking forward to getting Oathmark up and running Even though it has the Activation system, but if you fail, you still get to do a simple manoeuvre or shoot (slightly less well).
