During GenCon 2003 (July 24-27), I ran several games of Evil Stevie's Pirate Game. This page is a writeup of some of the games.

In the following pictures, the smaller pictures are thumbnails of larger pictures, click on the small picture to see the larger picture.

Resolving combat. Notice the bodies floating in the ocean, the sharks will be out soon!

Pulling bodies off a ship after a round of carnage.

Carnage on the high seas.

A nice overview of the ocean. Sadly, it was a rather hard ocean. We prefer to play on carpeting - preferably blue!

Larry Pieniazek's mountain turned into an Imperial base.

A closer view.

Another view of the base.

And another.

Another view of the ocean. This is during the 2nd battle game.

Yet another view.

The players at the end of the big campaign game. The gentleman with the big flag was the ringleader of the big coalition that defeated the islanders and captured a Class 3 Imperial ship. Glen of Red Shirt Games, with the smaller flag, took second place.

Another picture of the campaign game players.

And another.

All told, we ran two 4 hour battle games, an 8 hour campaign game, and a 4 hour campaign game. All events were well attended and people seemed to have a lot of fun. Several people managed to play in multiple games.
