Here’s a personal admission: I’ve always had a weakness for pirates. Something about them, bloodthirsty and violent as they are, just gets the excitement of a young man going. I see on today’s Steve Jackson Games Daily Illuminator that there will be a rendition of Evil Stevie’s Pirate Game at this year’s Origins con. If I ever had a chance to play this game, I’d be all over it. I have a copy of the Blackbeard Avalon Hill game that I’ve never played but want to.
