  • Players typically start with one small vessel and a limited number of figures, which they place on the vessel
  • Turns consist of a sequence of actions carried out in parallel
    • GM reveals wind speed and direction
    • Players plot movement in "LEGO inches" including starting facing and midcourse turns (45 degree resolution)
    • Movement is revealed and carried out. Collisions are resolved
    • Players announce and carry out cannon fire
    • Players announce and carry out crew actions (boarding, exploring islands, recruit castaways, loading treasure, etc)
    • Players announce and carry out small arms fire and hand to hand combat
  • When players reach port, they can suttle their treasure and prize ships and possibly upgrade ship size or hire additional crew
