Name: Tomb (Cursed)
Card: OE #213 (Limited Edition)
Guns : 3S
Hit %: 50 (S), 0 (L)
Ability: Turtle Ship. If this ship succeeds at a
boarding party, she may eliminate all of the other
Again with the boarding abilities on a one-masted
ship! Guys, this just doesn't work.
Even if the Tomb did catch something (for which she
needs a Helmsman), and even if she did board and
win, what good would that do? How many ships her
size have more than one crew? Not many, I'd wager.
The only way I can think of to use it is to attack a
ship with both treasure and crew; take out the crew
with the ability, and then the enemy has to give you
a treasure because that's all he'll have left. She's
no gold ship and no fighter, so that's about all
she's good for.
Eleven points is kind of steep for a ship like this,
even for the Cursed. You could do better with the
Fiddler's Green, Cyclops, Clear Wind, Celestine, or
Lilu, which are all better at either gold or
boarding (or both). The Tomb gets one thumb up and
one thumb down.
