4.0 out of 5 stars Quite the hodgepodge 15 Jun 2010
By Dr. C. Esch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
What a bizarre collection of articles! That said, it's definitely a "fun" book. I'm not sure how Romans and Greeks fit in to "Pirates to Darkest Africa," but there's quite a bit in there on them.

Pirates - 20 pages, including terrain and ship building
Romans - 20 pages, including gladiator rules
Conquistadors, Aztecs, etc. - 26 pgs
Darkest Africa - 18 pgs
Greeks - 10 pages

At the price of 3 wargame magazines, I was satisfied with the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice book 9 Feb 2013
By David Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
But lacks enough detail - It is basically just stuff they took down from there website that used to be free so they could sell it in book form. I expected more for my money especially in painting pirates and pirate ships, etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not nosserly recommended for Pirate Games 20 July 2012
By Raven - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this book, looking for great rules to get started with pirate gaming and terrain building. In terms of terrain this book does deliver, in that it will show you how to get started building great looking ships and sea ports, but if you want actual rules for gaming with pirates, I suggest looking elsewhere.
In addition this book seems more geared towards advertising for different Foundry products, more than anything else, and the book showcases information for scenarios on different products such as Darkest Africa, and Conquistadors.
