A free copy of Master and Commander is available from The Boardgaming Way. Master and Commander is a simulation of Napoleonic naval combat from White Dog Games and is designed to be fast-play and easy to learn. Players will maneuver their sailing ships in a hex grid sea in an effort to cross their opponents T (naval lingo for getting into a good firing position), or even board and capture an enemy vessel to use it against him. Victory is achieved by either sinking all enemy ships or chasing them out of the sea. Rules allow for changing wind conditions, crew quality, and shore batteries. The game includes six pages of rules, double-sided counters for 40 ships, and two sheets of hex grid. Print-and-play.

Crisis on the Right

Below is a snap taken and kindly submitted by volunteer play tester John Tex of one of his Plancenoit sessions in progress. Thanks to John and other play testers for their useful feedback. They all have helped make the game better. Paul Fish is doing a great job of developing the game and shepherding it along.
