In this post, we take a quick look at a Blood and Plunder battle between the English and Spanish. With the Spanish, a group of Dutch Mercenaries provides their help to bolster the Spanish defenses. Set with the goal of capturing one of three small buildings, the English sail towards the Spanish settlement.

Setting the Scene
Once we set the table, we decided on the scenario. The British Privateers (Buccaneers) would sail two ships into a harbor with the objective of capturing the small buildings near the middle of the table.
In the image above, the British would have to capture one of the three buildings marked with either an x or circle. The English knew that one of the three objectives was fake, but they didn’t know which. They only had to capture one real objective within the turn limit to win.
Softening up the shore
Using the cannons of their small ship, the British open fire on the Spanish and Dutch. Without a proper answer to cannon fire, the people of the settlement were sitting ducks. Fortunately for them, the British Buccaneers wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible before attracting the attention of the Spanish fleet. They did not have time to bombard the town as much as they would have liked.
