Beat To Quarters! - 1/300 Scale Napoleonic Naval Rules

Ahoy there!  I've got more for you today.  I've struggled with various sets of of naval rules over the years.  Unfortunately, the style of gaming I like --- a good mix of fun, fast but still somewhat accurate (but abstracted) just doesn't really exist IMO for Napoleonic naval.  At this point, having done a lot with Empires at War and This Hallowed Ground (which needs an update to align with Empires at War), I feel really good about the core mechanics being used in the rules I use.  So, I went ahead and wrote my own for naval now ... and here they are --- version 1.2.

Note:  Version 1.2 --- I'm still play testing through all this.  Happy to take any feedback anyone has if they try out the rules.

Rules can be downloaded here.

Pictures below of the sheets ...





I've included a page that has "right sized" templates for use in the game ... along with a table for random events (below).


I've also done up a quick "ship card" that would be used to track damage for the ships.  The excellent Adam Clark will be laser cutting these out for me ... so the D6's will fit into the board ... super cool!

  1. As usual, you go above and beyond for this community! Another ruleset of yours I've downloaded - now if only I could get someone to try it out with me lol! I've got a metric ton of those old Wiz Kids pirate ships that could work for this :)
