Captain Larry overseeing the fleet in Tortuga ... an honest merchant hasn't got a chance amongst all these cutthroats.

The Jolly Roger has been hoisted ... protect your purse and your innocents.

Arrgggh... traffic jam on the high seas!

 AAARRGGHHHH!  A record 71 scallawags sailed the briney seas in search of plunder this year, including 18 wenches. 

Most games were of the 5-player variety, which is not to my taste.  Too much luck in avoiding battles every turn which leads us to that old salt, John Clarke, being sunk eight times in one game ... thusly earning the COVETED title of MOST SUNK [or worst!] pirate - not to mention a bad case of motion sickness..  Not that he was lonely. Davey Jones had plenty of company as a number of land lubbers went down seven times.

A total of 30 games were played!  Heat winners were: Paul Weintraub, Frank Mestre, Pete Gathman, Beth Zhao, Cliff Ackman, Pat Mirk, Aex Bell, Dan Henry (twice)], Rck Kirchner, Robert Drozd, Tom Pavy, Greg Zegalia and the entire Speck clan - all three of 'em. The most feared of the lot was the vicious Greg-beard Zegalia ... a cunning black heart who'd run ye thru for a harsh word. Victorious in all three heats ... he cut a wide swath wherever he roamed. Other would be "winners" who were marooned or set adrift for failing to report for the semis were: Lin Sun, Joseph Collinson, Bill Crenshaw, Kevin Shaud, Harold Henning, and last year's King of the Pirates: John Elliot.  And they call themselves pirates! A scurvy lot what deserved their fate, say I.

Paul Weintraub won his semi-final over the bones of young Greg-beard to sail into the Final treasure hunt for the third year in a row! Also winning their challenges were old salt Tom Pavy and two newcomers to the py-ratin trade: Forrest Speck and Frank Mestre. When the four set sail for their Final test, diminutive Paul got off to a big lead ... causing the others to conspire against him. Paul made good his escape to Treasure Island, but Forrest gained the lead on Turn 11. Paul would have to rely on his Fame cards to tie the score at 44. It would come down to an exchange of broadsides with Paul scoring four hits to overcome a strong opening salvo for the win. Alas, poor Pavy ... the lad had 11 points on Turn 3 and 11 on Turn 8 - sinking five times in those six turns.
