Murray Takes Title

Kaiser’s Pirates had dropped out the Century but thanks to Andy Lewis (past KPR Champion) for sponsoring we were able to continue another fun year of ‘roll some dice and sink some ships’.

Because The Kaiser’s Pirates rewards careful hand management and card play in the long run and the luck of the dice on any given turn, a first-time player can make it into the finals, and this year it was Miles Rogers. Although the turn out was on the light side the competition was still heated with the difference for 5th seat (John Emory) and 4th seat (Tim Rogers) being 1/100 of a percent.

Our final table consisted of Bob Murry, Tim Rogers, Kevin Emory, and Miles Rogers. For the first round the start player was Bob who simply drew a card, followed by Tim who drew a card, then Kevin who also draws a card and leaving Miles to play the first attack on Bob merchants with a Shipping Lanes to sink only one merchantmen. During one point in the round Tim attempted to sink Miles wounded raider the ‘Grief’ however the dice did not roll in his favor so Tim placed the two Fog Banks on Miles and Bob leaving Kevin little options but to draw a card. Tim then is able to succeed in sinking the ‘Grief’ on his next attack. The remained of the round proceeded quickly ended with Tim taking 1st, Bob in 2nd, and Kevin in 3rd and Miles in 4th place.

Start of round two by Miles looking for redemption that he found by claiming two warships and three merchantmen early leaving the rest of the table trying to catch up. Everyone played well however Miles kept his lead and ended the round in 1st followed by Bob in 2nd, and Kevin in 3rd and Tim in 4th.

Tim started the third and final round with a race for a possible tie for first all depending on how the dice rolled and who scored the most points (sound familiar). Kevin comes out swinging with Laying Mines against Bob but is only able to sink single merchantmen. Bob and Miles are keeping a close count on each other’s points staying within one or two point through out the game. When Bob plays a Breakout and receives the ‘Kronprinz Wilhem Grosse’ (D6 attack) and the ‘Iltis’ (D4 attack). After Kevin plays Limited Supply on the ‘Iltis’, Bob on his next turn attempts to capture one of Kevin merchantmen sail ship (3 points) rolling a D4 at -2 and so Kevin rolled a one and Bob rolled a modify two thus making his final score 69 vs Miles score of 68 giving him the round and winning Kaiser’s Pirates.
