Pieces of Eight

These rules have got a lot in them. They take the form of a "campaign in an evening". The land raids are fought in 15mm on a 3 x 2 foot board. Quick and fun with prisoners, looting, alarms, getting lost etc…

The sea fights are fought using 1/450th scale ships (men are 4mm high). The fights are never even but if you are outgunned in one fight you may be better off in the next!! Rules include photocopiable buildings and play sheets.
