Evil Stevie's Pirate Game

war games dont really need that much updateing, but regular trimmings and work on new rules/replacement or removal of old one is nice since it refines the game to its best.

That's the one I was talking about. :pir_wacko:

Are these the updated rules you wanted or did you already have them?

Why not update it yourself? :pir-tongue: Add your own rules or change them around a bit.. You don't need the Creator of that game to update it for everyone, when you can update it yourself. :pir_laugh2: Bring some new life into it. because if someone doesn't.. it will remain that way until the creator updates it.. :pir-skull: And no one knows how long that will be. :pir-hmpf_bad: So, if you cant find any updates.. Just create your own game like it. :pir-classic: It has the foundation right there. :D If you dont, someone eventually will! :pir-skull: Now get started, Theres not much time.. *hands you a pen and paper* Get writing on some new rules and features! :D

Like the rest of us here, I am a huge fan of LEGO pirates, and thus, I eventually ended up at the main page of Evil Stevie's Pirate Game. The game seems like loads of fun; the rules are a bit outdated, but a few tweaks would help revitalize them. In any case, I was wondering if there are people out there that are still playing this game, because most of the links I've found just lead to 404 error pages.

I like gaming in general, so when you combine LEGO, pirates, and gaming, my mouth starts watering. :pir-cry_happy: I ran a few little scenarios at home, to experiment with the game mechanics, but it's no fun without other players. And also, my limited LEGO resources could not support a full-fledged game, or even a small one.

So does anyone here still play ESPG? If so, I would love to get involved in a game. If not, would it be possible for someone with lots of pirate LEGO to help organize a game? I'd be happy to help plan the event. I live in the SF Bay Area, I'm 16, and I'm itching to start pillaging.

Of course, if this game is dead, then I'll just leave it lie. If this is the case, don't hesitate to tell me. :pir-sad2:

There are many people out there that agree with you, Dug up some old threads for you to read. Most of the thing you'll be interested in can be found here on Eurobricks own war-gaming thread. Some alternatives to ESPG are as below.

Chiles Rules

Brikwars

And a thread thats very very similar to your own, I think you'll find most answers here.

Best of luck finding a game buddy!

I've been interested in running the game myself, but have never played any. I wondered if the game was dead to the creator at some point, so I emailed him as follows:

Mr. Jackson,

I am a fan of the Lego "Pirates" theme, and came across your Lego-based pirate game several years ago. I am curious as to if you have thought about this game over the years since it's been updated at all, and am wondering if you still run events for it. Also, the return of the "Pirates" and its evolution

(i.e.- Sets, Custom Creations, Custom Minifigures) has made me ponder if there are any updates that you have considered making to the website or rules.

Thank you for reading,

John Murphy

To which he responded:

I think about it occasionally, I run games occasionally (nothing scheduled now) - but I am not at all "caught up" on the new sets. Someday I will get back to it . . .

I'm a bit far away (12-14 hours drive) for a game, but I wish you luck in your endeavours in finding one.

Well, remember that Evil Stevie is actually Steve Jackson. He owns Steve Jackson games. Remember the games that pay the bills are the ones that need attention, and Evil Stevie's Pirates is free. As for him running a day of his pirate game, I usually see him do it a few times a year at the major game conventions (Dragon con, Origins, GenCon). I say use patience and keep your eyes open. If it's posted that he (or anyone using his rules) is running a game, I'll let you know in this forum. Having seen his game run many times, I have to say it rocks!

Ahab out.......................

Awesome, that would be great. Do you know where GenCon is held, because most of the pictures I've seen of ESPG are from 2003-2005 GenCons...might be worth attending!

I was wondering the same thing. I live in Seattle WA and I don't know if anybody does that game in my area. I don't have a lot of money to travel with so I was just asking. I do know that the NW Brickcon is held here but I don't know if they hold those games or not.

What's Brickfair? Sounds fun :pir-cry_happy:

Brickfair is the Washington D.C. area LEGO convention, held in August. And yes, it is a lot of fun.

Just thought I'd get the word out, I don't know each and every link to ESPG, so here it is.

Steve Jackson has moved Evil Stevie's Pirate Game to his own site, at http://sj.sjgames.com/[/b]"]http://sj.sjgames.com/. From there, it is linked normally. I already notified Forbidden Cove about the site change, so hopefully they already know to change their link addresses. If anyone else knows other sites linked to ESPG, please let them know (or me).

Thanks for the heads-up. Steve Jackson is a class act, and his games are among my very favorites(Car Wars being my #2 of all time).

Lego & an awesome game designer = more fun than you know what to do with.
