** ... and all who will be in 2020 ... and actually: all of you!
Ahoy there, figure pushers,
also in this buccaneer year we have to bury our treasure chest with the many new figures and games for safety on a secret island - shore leave is on the agenda! We visit the monkey theatre, let the jungle blossoms give us crazy thoughts, drink mulled wine, go on the palm and sing Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!
But before we grow sea legs, we come back on board in the new year with dry starfish in our empty pockets and weigh anchor for a new round trip around the sun.
We thank you for the past year for your loyalty and wish you a pirate Christmas and an exciting turn of the year into the new decade.
In the time from 23th December 2019 till 6th January 2020 there will be no shipping of goods - the crew is on shore leave!
"Ahoy there people who prefer to have their rules for card-based fun and mayhem in English!
The long-ish, fancy version:
You may have noticed that we released the long-awaited English-language version of the second edition of Freebooter's Fate on the weekend. You may also have noticed that we called it the "bare bones" version and that it is an online download. And so many of you have wondered (and asked us) what you have to do to get your eager mitts on the juicy, meaty, full-fat print version. The one with all the pretty pictures, dramatic stories, witty comments, boaty bits, more scenarios etc.
Well, the good news is that there will be something like that and that you will be able to get it. The slightly less good news is that you will have to wait just a wee bit longer.
You see, what with quite a few of you living in a country which seems to be determined to get the full mileage out of social media's "it's complicated" relationship status, it's been a bit tricky. And so while we normally associate this sort of thing with motivating people to jump off the plank and among the sharks, we decided to give this "Kickstarter" thing a go.
So keep watching your standard news feed for all things Freebooter and you should see good news on the horizon from about March 2020 onwards (you know, once we've digested all the Christmas biccies, replenished the rum reserves and scraped the barnacles off the hull after the winter break).
Summary for executive pirates:
Want the 2nd edition rules in print rather than just electronically? There's gonna be a Kickstarter for it ca. March 2020.
Arrr! (in English)

Btw- here it is - 2nd edition bare bones online!
Well, that's a nice surprise for holiday season!
The Cabaña Òrdago comes with an annex, several balconies and a grand staircase. The large terrace invites you to linger - of course the clever pirate can also take cover behind the thick wall.
Señor Fluffy Kitten - Cats have 9 lives say the people in Longfall. They are right!
In order for order to prevail in the street of Longfall, the Cazador guards must also go on patrol. At least in one half of the city.
The waters around Longfall don't freeze over. Not even in winter! The chic Acalco invites you on a boat trip, doesn't it?
All novelties are available immediately.
Apros pos - the last treasure chest will be shipped on Friday, 20th December. The team has shore leave until the 5th of January 2020!
We wish you a happy pre-Christmas season!
Your Freebooter Team
right after SPIEL we are going to Crisis in Antwerp and we have a lot of new items for you!
This year we start with our limited edition miniature the mercenary Anqui. A former Amazon with a passion for black powder weapons - big ones above all!
Victor Droiture - a handsome Debonner gentleman in best shape and age. Only for some he has an unpleasant profession, because he is a very dogged and ambitious inspector. ... well, in Longfall everybody should be careful of him.
And Longfall continues to grow rapidly: with the half-decayed Ruined Cabaña Derumbar! Do I hear rum? Was this a rum bar? One should quickly think about a reconstruction!
All new products are available now!
The best at the end: 2nd edition rules in English language ... bare bones! Available on Saturday on Wargames Vault.
