Age of Sail naval wargame rules usable with either model ships or counters to represent them. Bookkeeping is kept to a minimum and this is very much a landlubberís set of rules – you donít need to be a sailing expert to enjoy games using this set!

Despite this unusual craft such as galleys and galleasses as well as xebecs and fireships are covered, and the rules include game design notes, a scenario, rules for boarding and grappling, tacking and boxhauling, &c.

Differences in ship and naval development over the period (1660-1820, so including the Napoleonic Wars) are also covered!
