Cutthroats: Terror on the High Seas

Build a large crew:
Port at any seaward town and give the crew orders to take
prisoners before returning to the ship. Once they have come
back, send them out again. (The prisoners will be pressed
into service and added amongst the ranks of the sailors.)
Repeat as often as necessary.

Hints:
Never drop your sails in battle–there’s just no need.
Maneuverability is always important when you need to get
your other cannon facing toward the enemy as quickly as
possible.

When you begin an adventure, loot towns first to get enough
money to buy another small ship (approximately 1,500 gold
pieces, depending on the port) before you go off to try
your hand at open-water battles.

Before you start in on a long series of sea battles,
recruit as many sailors as you can fit onboard; you’ll
need them for the boarding operation against even a
minor opponent.

Before you disburse your plunder to end an adventure,
head out for one last strike on the open seas to kill
off a few of your crewmen (and bring in some extra cash).
That will make your split much more attractive once you
reach port.

When going after a ship, begin by switching to Chain Shot,
and attack only the sails for a few passes (that will slow
the enemy ship down). Pull back and switch to Grape Shot,
and hammer away at the deck (that will kill off enemy crewmen).
Once you’ve made a good number of strikes, issue the grapple
order and begin boarding–hopefully, the odds will now be in
your favor.

You may find things easier if you stick to a single ship and
upgrade, rather than increasing your fleet (besides, you’ll
have less worries about doling out the plunder later with
fewer pirates under your care).

Whenever you get a ship to surrender, secure it and take it
to port to sell. Don’t press the crew into service; they’ll
mutiny on you at the most inconvenient time.

If you do sail into combat with multiple ships, you can cut
down on the chaos by controlling the lead ship and allowing
the computer to control the rest.
