Sailpower: Cogs of Valor is not the regular Sailpower game, but a smaller offshoot that covers medieval cogs. The rules will be distributed for free via this site as well as with with my new line of cogs. To start SDGS will offer both a 1/100th and 1/250th line of cogs for this game, with each line having a large and small cog design. The 1/100th line is for a gamer who wants to build nice cog replicas and has the space to play them, whereas the 1/250th scale is perfect for gamers who are space challenged, or want to run big fleet actions!
This is a fast paced game that is more simple then the regular Sailpower game, yet with it’s own uniqueness. The game play leans a bit towards the lighthearted.
The full rules can be downloaded right here for free!
