  • Nautical Games

    A ship, a crew, and the open sea

    For much of recorded history, the idea of going to sea was like the ultimate adventure for many. Traveling to distant lands across the vast and unknowable depths, and returning to tell the tale... the sea has provided grist for many of our most beloved stories. But today, nautical adventures are a relic of an earlier age, and the closest many of us will ever get to experiencing it will be at the tabletop. Are there any games that convey the feeling of these bygone adventures?
