It seems like the Golden Age of Piracy is upon us thanks to Blood & Plunder, a game I am very keen to get involved in. At Salute 2018, the Leicester Phat Cats did a marvellous job of showcasing the system on a board filled with ships and a coastal settlement.
The Tin Soldiers of Antwerp ran a family friendly participation game in which ‘The Swiss Family Robinson’ had to defend their tree house against waves of attacking pirates.
TGCM had brought an imposing pirate vessel to show off their miniatures range.
A few years earlier and back on dry land, Simon Miller & Friends staged a fictional English Civil War battle in the Borsetshire hamlet of Soggy Bottom. Not being content with just one engagement, this was played in two different scales, using the ‘To the Strongest! For King and Parliament’ set of rules.
