Mystery Subsim #68

Here is the initial shot of Mystery Subsim #68


Be the first to guess correctly the name of this subsim or naval game and have your name added to the prize pool.

If you guess, and you are wrong, then you have used one of your three wrong guesses alloted to each player. Each player gets only three wrong guesses in the whole contest before your participation ends, so guess wisely (if you are really sure). If you don't know, don't waste a guess! You can only guess incorrectly three times in the contest.

You cannot EDIT your post in this contest. An edited or deleted post counts as a wrong guess.

Remember the rules!!

If no one tries to guess this shot, or no one guesses correctly, there will be an expanded shot to follow.

Good hunting!
Neal

Bingo! Sid Meier's Pirates!


From the review:

Quote:
The opened-ended nature of a game like this sometimes produces interesting results that may not always make sense. The governor/country AI works in such a way that it seems like they never get that angry at you no matter how bad you mistreat them. Actually what’s happening is that they will become hostile to you if you constantly attack their ships and towns. But, as long as you’re also attacking their enemies, like nations they’re at war with or other pirates, then any bad attitudes your attacks caused kind of cancel out. This makes it too easy to get promoted by the same people you’ve just plundered. Another thing to keep in mind is that a particular town’s attitude toward you will not always be the same as their country's overall attitude. Finally, it seems you can travel for a quite a while without any food on board, maybe they’re fishing?

Arrgh! That sure suckered a few in. A little fireball and some flying bodies and they're so quick to play the SH card...alas.

Now, I know what you're thinking... been a lot of MS shots without a repeat... 68, to be exact...so what's next? I can give you a hint. It's gonna be called: Mystery Subsim #69, for those who are keeping count. Good luck, you'll need it.
