Hello,

Yesterday at **four player** home-game we played the following board:

2 - Pearl Diver

3 - Chancelor

4 - Pirate Ship

4 - Sea Hag

4 - Gardens

4 - Feast

4 - Caravan

4 - Throne room

4 - Treasure map

5 - Ghost ship

(no Colony/Platinum)

The winner of that game bought *Pirate Ship* on first turn, then on third turn and started *pirate - shipping* everyone till he get 8 coins. To easy himself a task he bought *throne room* which had helper him a few times. Everyone was without money in their hands at that time. Then every *pirate ship* hand he bought *province* or *double province* if *throne room* was in hand with *pirate ship*.

Other two players also bought pirate ship, but only one, not two like winner. They also bought *sea hag*, but that did not change anything. One of them had 5 coins worth loot and started buying *duchies* (he finished second), the other one had four coins pirate ship loot and bought *gardens*, he finished third.

Is there any other comparable or better strategy on this board? Is double *sea hagging* possible?

Thank you
