Avast Ye Lubbers!
« on: January 20, 2018, 07:54:53 PM »

Aye an' tis been quite a stretch since I put me ol' sea dog cap on, but lads, I've news fer ye.

I've started a new ship and career! Dis time in da whalin biz. Right nice port I've found ta do it from too; Nantucket (the name of a new game on steam, and not coincidentally the name of an old seafaring port not 20 miles from where I live).

Now, ya know I'm not gonna put me reputation on da line easily, golden *cough* as it is, but I'm telling ya, if dis game don't flick yer sea dog bic, yer lost! Forever lost, like Ahab and his mad dream!

Let's be straight doh, dis here be a strategy game not a 3D world. Yet, dis game strikes right to the heart of all age of sail sea captains!

Fer only 17 of yer gold pieces, dis gem be yours!

I recommend, nay, DEMAND dat you at least visit da steam page and watch da two videos. Dis game will suck me soul I be predictin', so how could yer ol' pal not wish the same fer you?

See ya out there lads!

P.S. - Ordered my SWG disks. I'll be there soon. :)

Aye, I'll take a look at that thar game. Sadly I may have ta do some plunderin' and lootin' 'fore I can try ta get me hands on somethin' like that.

(Woot! Will be awesome if we can get some SWG hunts going. Grinding by myself is not the most fun. lol)

Oh, and I'll try to be around as much as possible, but I have to ref every Sunday for our indoor league starting tomorrow and we're in preseason training for the regular season, which starts the middle of February. And still have a couple of things like need to get CPR/AED certified for that. Soo...

Alrighty then ..

Tho I'd always found it easier to steal whale oil then process it, I dropped some swag on the prospect of doin just that ;)

Not sure when I'll actually get in, but it's on my steam app and ready to go.

Good! I think you'll enjoy it a lot. This game has atmosphere, even if, like Sea Dogs, you have to grind a bit at start.

It's a mostly a digital board game, meaning die rolls. Interesting the way they handle it I think, as you'll see.

As for you, Boss, Merry Christmas. :)

Good recommend, Scrog! This is definitely a fun game! Not quite pirate, but got to love the atmosphere and especially the music. Very cool! Thanks!  :)

Can be very challenging, too. Had to figure out some strategies.

Seems like you're pretty much living in game lately. Seem to be playing it all the time on Steam. haha

As for me. Trying to play as much as I can. So much going on, between trying to get this house fixed up and lacrosse. Did get to play quite a bit a few days ago.

I told ya it would suck me soul. :)

Yep, what I really like about it is the feeling that your becoming an old sea dog out there as you learn about creatures, where they  live, and perhaps abilities not listed on the card in some very WTF moments. hehe Each creature also attacks in different ways, some may upend the boat, others might try to attack the specific character that attacked them, etc.

It does take some strategy development!
