  6 New Pirate/Ship Cards - Use all with the single included blank card ! See how here. Mon, 14 January 2008 05:50

Q: How do you add more than one new pirate or ship to your game with only one included blank card ???

A: Use my "Random Pirate" card and "Pirate Identity Mat" !!!



With my "Random Pirate" card, when you engage a pirate with this as the active card, you roll a die and select the corresponding pirate from the "Pirate Identity Mat".

If you defeat him, draw a new card as normal. If you are unable, the "Random Pirate" card stays in play. Roll again with the next encounter.

Included New Pirates / Ships :

(From Douglas, download page. New format, graphics, some values/wording may have been adjusted.)

Captain William Kidd - Pirate
Bartholomew Roberts (Black Bart) - Pirate

(From Admiral Fisher and Eric DOW Crew, forum ideas. Card format, graphics, some values/wording may have been adjusted.)

Rock Brasiliano - Pirate
The Magdalena - Treasure Ship
Jamaican Governor's Galleon - Treasure Ship


(New card, my creation)

Calico Jack - Pirate

Sailing the high seas under his infamous flag of the skull and crossed swords! Calico Jack sailed with Anne Bonny and Mary Read for a time. Depending on your die roll, they may join him in battle !

Of course having all of these on official cards would be the best, but this is a great way to add a bunch, and still maintain the mystery in the pirate card pile. The random card has become my family's favorite!

Thanks to Douglas, Admiral Fisher, and Eric (DOW crew) for their great ideas. I hope none are offended by my use of your ideas, or by any alteration I have made. Thanks to DOW for Pirate's Cove graphics that I used for the Pirate's Identity mat.

I also included overlay versions of the "Sabotage" and "Secret Weapon" cards, for use in printing on the official blank cards.
(Use the cards without graphics to print onto official cards.)

Also included is a new event card, an altered variation of an idea by BlackDogSilver, "Hurricane". This card reads:
"After you plunder your island, a giant storm rips you from anchor, dragging you to sea. The storm blows you into a strange new harbor. Roll a die, and move to that island. The storm damaged your sails, lower sails one level. However, you still have time to plunder the new island."

You can use this card applied to the player that played it only, or applied to all players. Could lead to surprise battles! If the new island had been previously plundered, you would gain nothing from it.


Enjoy ! Feel free to leave any comments / critiques.



Printing Instructions:

***IMPORTANT*** Make sure to print each page individually. DO NOT JUST CLICK THE PRINT ICON. This will print the entire 16 page document, start to finish.
***Make sure to select "Print" under the "File" menu tab (PC) and select the print "Current Page" option for each page you wish to print.***

1. Download "Pirate'sCoveCardPack.pdf" from DOW's "Goodies" page .
2. Open file (you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is a free download from Adobe if you don't have it)

Pirate Identity Mat
3. Print pages 1 and 2 onto photo paper - use the color, "Best" quality print setting
4. Trim excess, place front to back, and laminate (optional, but gives you a lasting mat)

Random Pirate Card

5. Print page 4 onto regular printing paper - use grayscale, "Fast Draft" or lowest print quality to save on ink - ***This is only an alignment page***
6. Align blank Pirate card over the card on the page you printed.
7. Carefully tape (clear Scotch tape works great) just enough of the top and bottom edges of the card to the page, to hold it there firmly. Be careful to keep card aligned with the registration marks.
8. Re-insert this page into your printer feed tray. Be sure to place it facing the correct direction (Up/Down, Top/Bottom) ! (Varies depending on printer...run a test page back through your printer if you are not sure.)
9. Set the print quality back to color, "Best" quality.
10. Print card
11. Let ink dry. Due to glossy finish on the card, this may take several minutes. I used a warm hair dryer to help speed up the drying. Best to let dry overnight, as one of my cards was still tacky an hour later.
12. Carefully remove card from page.
13. Enjoy your new card !

Additional included cards - Follow same instructions above
