Merchant and Marauders Broadsides

Set in the Merchants & Marauders universe, Broadsides is a standalone game in which the two opposing players command pirate ships engaged in a fierce battle over a profitable sea lane. Sinking the enemy or taking out their Captain and First Mate are the only ways to seize victory and survive the day!

The card-driven game system allows players a wide variety of actions, triggered by playing cards in a variety of combinations.

Aim: zero in your cannons using an innovative targeting system
Hold: Draw more cards to increase your versatility
Reload: Load a variety of ammunition types (chain shot for rigging, canister for crew, solid shot for hull) into a variety of cannons (reliable 18-Pounders, thunderous Carronades, deadly Long Nines)
Broadside: Blast all your cannons at once in a fierce but costly salvo
Sheer Off: Correct your course just enough to disrupt your foe's plans
Repair: Send sailors where they are needed to man the guns, patch the hull, or replace ruined sails

Additionally, your Captain's unique Reputation and a handful of drafted Dirty Tricks means that every matchup will be different from the last. Multiple tactical approaches to either of the win conditions means that you can tailor your gameplay to your strengths and your foe's weaknesses. Outthink, outplay, outgun, and sail away the winner!
