This is an excellebnt set of rules. Its one of the best for single ship combat or when each player controls a single ship (two max). You will not be able to run Trafalgar or other major battles without a lot of players, but small actions are a joy. The rules were written with an eye towars real sailing tactics and the sailing model is very realistic. Combat is good too, but the highlights of this game is the sailing. This is not a "beer and pretzle" game, but is a good simulation.
Liked: Love the rules and really enjoy this as a game.
Dislikes: The scans just were not up to par. i was a little disapponted in the qulity of these scans
SUMMARY: Its a must have for Napoleonic era sailing ships. Only the quality of the scans earn the loss of a star, the game itself is a five star game.
