July 17, 2016 - 10:26am
Z-Man Games has previously announced the upcoming release of another game set in the Merchants & Marauders universe, Merchants & Marauders: Broadsides. This new stand-alone game carries the same high-adventure theme set in the Caribbean during the age of piracy,but is far removed from the pick-up-and-deliver adventure that was its predecessor. Merchants & Marauders: Broadsides brings ship-to-ship combat in the form of a hand-management and worker placement card game, and players will be playing combos of cards such as pairs, straights, and flushes to fire the various weapons their ship is equipped with.
- The 18-Pounder: a balanced, all-purpose cannon that can deal damage via a wide range of effectiveness
- The Long Nine: a focused and powerful weapon that is difficult to aim, but when it hits it deals damage of the greatest severity
- The Carronade: a lower-powered weapon that is easy to hit with but deals damage at a lower level
