The Raise the Black Kickstarter will be wrapping up in a few days and we wanted to celebrate by giving away a 6th Rate Frigate! This beautiful ship closely represents the Queen Anne’s Revenge, Blackbeard’s famous Frigate that he used as his flagship during 1717-1718. The fast Sloop found in Raise the Black is ideal for small raids and limited engagements, but if you really want to tackle the Spanish treasure galleons, you might need something bigger! Blackbeard needs his flagship!
We were planning on giving away one 6th Rate Frigate during the Raise the Black Kickstarter and now Firelock has agreed to donate another to give away! Two free Frigates up for grabs! It seems a majority of Blood & Plunder players live in the United States but we know there are players all over the world so we’re going to split this giveaway into a US and a World giveaway (this is not an attempt to show national favoritism but to increase the chances of a winner outside the US).
All you need to do to enter this giveaway is comment either directly on this blog or on the post sharing this article on the Blood and Plunder – Buccaneering Across the Spanish Main official Facebook page. We need two pieces of information in your comment:
- Tell us what country you’re from
- Tell us what excites you most in this Kickstarter. Blackbeard? The new Sloop? The new Army factions? Pirates pirates pirates? What really catches your eye here? Something brief is perfect.-
Here’s an example of a valid entry:
I’m from England and I’m most looking forward to playing Black Caesar and his personal pirate faction. Raise the Black!
The last thing you need to do is check your messages after the drawing concludes (at the end of the Kickstarter campaign). We’ve had some trouble contacting giveaway winners in the past. If you comment on here on the blog, check back after the campaign is done because we will reply to your comment here if you win.
Now lets take a look at this amazing ship! It’s huge! This ship is a finely detailed model and its size is truly impressive on the table. It has four decks, can hold up to 26 cannons, 8 swivel guns and 96 men and it can move through the water as fast as anything in the game! You can upgrade it with a ship’s wheel, representing some of the 18th century advances in ship technology which makes it easier to handle when making difficult maneuvers.
“Rumor” has it that there will be special rules in Raise the Black for a modified 6th Rate for Blackbeard. Rules for Queen Anne’s Revenge may include ways to move up to 6″ per move! You need this ship.
I’ve painted a 6th Rate Frigate up for my Spanish Navy but I think I’ll be buying another when I can and painting it up dark and threatening to use a the Queen Anne’s Revenge! Next October Blackbeard will be commanding his own Queen Anne’s Revenge on my gaming table. With any luck, you’ll win one of these ships for your gaming table as well!
