    That is why I developed the wipe off ship logs DB. Speeds up play at cons no end and does away with having to clear up chips at the end.

    In the British Royal Navy, hanging back with your flagship was a great way to get your neck stretched "pour encourager les autres"--just ask

    All we did was use a signal flag to be displayed with the order and flag on cards held by the players. The Admiral just displayed on a small stand by

    Hang back...and do nothing. As long as this rule only imposes negative effects, I don't really see the fun in it (combined with the incentive to hang

    I've long thought an "e-Ship Log" app would be ideal for managing Chit Clutter. Nothing fancy, just replicates the paper log on your screen

    I'm not much of an electronic gameplay sort of guy, but do see the value in soloplay. I'm a fan of moving the ships physically on a tabletop, but can't

    Another option is kind of like the Wings Ace skills system... each level of "multiple ship" command gets you one choice of Ability. So a squadron

    Flagship rule

    I just read the rulebook's optional Flagship rule. That's a rough one. It seems like it really would encourage the flagship to hang back.

    I hear there was a mobile app for solitary play some time back. Dors anyone know anything about that, and if there are plans to update or relaunch it?

    The free ability card makes sense to me. My impression is that historically there was a wide range of skills among nautical leaders, from the negatves

    Perhaps we could make our own "tactics deck" that we could share with a two turn delay? Instead of doing a lot of writing, we could have a set

    Ah. Thanks for that, I'm well aware of it. I was more thinking of an actual app that would let you set up ship lists, doing the math for you and making

    Makes sense. So perhaps a free ability card for the Commodore would make sense as a house rule?

    How many ships can use the damage counters in the starter set?

    No worries Stian, if you post it in the ordinary section of AArs, I can credit it to you towards that medal instead.

    I would suspect this would be any Commodore? I can't remember the rules say anything about the size of the ship?
