Historically, the Spanish galleon was one of the most famous types of ships during the golden age of sailing ships. For a hunderd years, these popular ship served as warships as well as merchant ships.
When spotted close to a Spanish city like Puerto Bello, Cartegena or Havana, most cases the silver train or/and Treasure fleet was close.
I can't remember when I first started playing SidMeiers Pirates!. I started playing the game together with my American neighbor. Some Years later I also played the game frequently with a good classmate of mine. And offcourse a lot at home, alone.
And I always imagined what the ports I visited in the game would really look like. And I got the chance to see that. I have already been to @Curaçao, twice. I have visited several forts here.
Such as Fort Beekenburg (Curaçao), where the photo is from. Three cannons that protect the island against pirates, buccaneer and enemy states.
For the people who Pirates! do not know or have never played:
Sid Meier's Pirates! video game created by Sid Meier and developed and published by MicroProse in 1987. First on the Commodore 64, later also on other systems such as in 1990 for the Amiga.
The game is a simulation of the life of a pirate, a privateer, or a pirate hunter in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. The Pirates! playing field includes the Spanish Main (ie the northern coast of South America), Central America and the Yucatan Peninsula, the entire Gulf of Mexico, Florida, and all Caribbean islands, plus Bermuda. The player receives a letter of marque authorizing service as a privatize for the Spanish Empire, the Dutch Republic, the Kingdom of England, or the French colonial empire in the Caribbean.
Here is another screenshot of a game in which you fight on the walls of a fortress with the local commander.

Anybody ever notice that the battle sound effects from #SidMeier’s #Civilization2 come from the Black Knight scene in #MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail?
Today we played the "old" "Sid Meier's Civilization" Boardgame from Fantasy Flight Games.
We played a four player game with both expansions that are available.
I can not say if i like it or not because that was our first game.
What i can say is, it is complex, has a strange fight mechanism and needs a lot of time.
But somehow we also had fun ;) So, we will play it again and see how it performs. Currenty i have the feeling it has a strong run away problem, so that it seems you know very early who will win.
But that might depend also how experienced the other players are and how they negotiate.
Well, nice game, will play it again.

This is my images of a governor in the Caribbean, also known as the Spanish Main. Many Dutch, English and French settlers went to the area to borther the Spanish, and did it as pirates or buccaneers.
The images was taken from the game Pirates!
Like sad; I loved to play the game. And hope to visited the ports and old fortresses from that era.
Pasanggrahan - lies at the Plasa Wilhelmina. This yellow ocher building gives me the image of a governor's building as I formed my image after playing Pirates!
And I loved to make the Caribbean unsafe as a pirate, often with the Dutch islands as a base
Another fort that I visited while being on Curaçao was Fort Nassau.
Fort Nassau was built after the era of pirates and the era of buccaneers was ended.
And yet I like this fort suited to the game Pirates!

My favorite part of #gencon was exploring the exhibitor hall to see and sometimes demo new #boardgames!! 😄
Here is a first batch of pictures for games I was interested in. Some I didn't have time to demo but the board caught my eye so I'll need to look into them more now that #gencon50 is over!
Pic 1: #splendor cities expansion. This expansion comes with 4 modular expansion which, for the most part, appear to be combinable. It sold out very quickly so I'll need to wait for it to hit local store to pick up a copy!
Pic 2: #photosynthesis brings a creative mechanic of growing trees in a circular forest. Tree growth appears to be dependant on a tree being in direct line of sight to a sun which moves around the circular forest. Lots of sunlight blocking in this game as tall trees around the outer edges will block sunlight to the smaller trees on the inside!
Pic 3: a GIANT version of #flickemup#deadofwinter was being demo'ed and it sure looked fun!
Pic 4: #clankinspace was a surprise secret release at #gencon2017 announced only the day before opening day! #clank is a game I've had so much fun with that I was super excited to hear about this!
Pic 5: #Merlin by Stefan Feld. I actually don't know anything about this game but it's by Stefan Feld so that puts it automatically on my interested list!
Pic 6: #palaceofmadkingludwig is a successor to #castlesofmadkingludwig. I don't know much about this one either but it looks neat!
Pic 7: #championsofmidgard#darkmountains#valhalla was launched as a #kickstarter and hopefully my copy will arrive any day! Excited for this one as I enjoy #championsofmidgard
Pic 8: #civilization a new dawn by #sidmeier. I haven't played any previous civilization board games but have played the old video games. I hope this one lives up to the level of fun I had with the video games!
Sid Meier's Civilization: one of the longest running video game series of all time.
In our epic 15th episode, we call upon the knowledge of Civ expert and special guest Joe Jasek to examine the star qualities that have made this franchise so beloved by multiple generations of gamers.
Join us as we take a look back at the ways the series has evolved, its relevance to world history, and its usefulness as a teaching tool before delving into the nuances of its newest entry, Civilization VI (which was ported to PS4 and XBox One earlier this month). Whether you're new to the series or someone like Joe, we think you'll learn something from this episode...and have a blast doing it!
P.S. stick around til the very end for a special holiday message!
Ein wunderschönes Wochenende wünsche ich euch allen erstmal! Spielt ihr eigentlich auch gerne Strategiespiele?🙃 Ich freue mich drauf heute Civilization IV anzuspielen, das mir die lieben Leute von @2k_deutschland zur Verfügung gestellt haben😍 [Werbung, da Kooperation]
Die Sonne heute wollte ich zumindest nutzen um dieses Bild zu knipsen😊 Denn nebenbei habe ich nämlich aufgeräumt und meinen Weihnachtskram ausgepackt😬 Die Zeit für das Game werde ich mir aber trotzdem nehmen und ich bin mega gespannt drauf!
Bei vielen Strategiespielen, die überall herumschwirren hat mir die Optik von diesem Game persönlich direkt sehr gut gefallen und erinnert mich ein Stück weit an die Siedler-Spiele🤓 Strategiespiele sind ja nun nicht für jeden etwas, aber wie sieht’s denn bei euch aus? Habt ihr Favourites in diesem Bereich?😊
Vielen Dank nochmal an 2K für das Spiel! Ich habe mich sehr darüber gefreut und werde es die nächsten Tage ausgiebig testen💪🏻😁 Jetzt aber erstmal das Wochenende auskosten und entspannt abschalten! Gemütlichen Samstag euch😘
Yeah! It is 2020, I have finished #Civilization 1 (1991) in real life!
(Also a bit scary, back then I thought 2020 to be the far distant future, when I would be old...)
Next target: 2050 (civ2, civ3, civ4, civ5 and civ6)
