This past weekend I discovered the old Pirates collectible card game from Wizkids. Sure, I was aware of it to some degree, and I was even interested in a tabletop naval game using plastic card cut-out ships, but I never invested myself in the game until I found a box of 20 card packs on sale at Target for ten bucks. What the hell, I picked up a box, brought it home, and started putting inexpensive little model ships together. Incredible that they seem to be the equivalent scale to Uncharted Seas, and they will work in a pinch to play with the Trafalgar rules I bought last year but haven't found any models... until now. Here is a comparison shot with some of my Elven ships. The pirate ships are about the same size as a frigate or cruiser.
