Recreate the High Adventure and Glory of The Age of Sail!
Are you the master of all commanders? Are you the scurviest of sea dogs? Have you ever secretly felt you?d have made a great pirate or could have defeated the great sea captains in a ship to ship duel?
Sailpower is a miniatures game that allows the players to take on the role of a captain in the Age of Sail. Command small ships, large ships or even a whole squadron. It?s your call! Battle other ships, or embark on a mission seeking plunder and riches while giving your enemies the slip. Sailpower is a complete system designed to support fast paced sea action, exploration and adventure. You can play Sailpower on a small table with a couple of ships, a big table with many ships, or even a floor battle with your ?sea? covering the whole room!
