On 1 June 1813, Captain John Lawrence, mortally wounded, issued his final command from the deck of the U.S.S. Chesapeake:

 Don’t Give Up The Ship!

 These words have since become a battle cry. Now, with Captain’s Sea you take command of the Chesapeake to see if you can fair better against the better crewed British frigate H.M.S. Shannon.

 Captain’s Sea is a low-to-moderate complexity game for two players who take the roles as captains of the original American frigates (Chesapeake, Congress, Constellation, Constitution, President, and United States) or their opponents from the British or French navies during the turn of the 19th Century. All of the classic duels fought by these ships are represented in detail. Unlike other age of sail games that focus on fleet actions, Captain’s Sea puts you on the deck of a single ship with the responsibility of leading her to victory. 

Included with the game are ten scenarios, including such classic engagements as the Constellation vs. L’Insurgete (9 February 1799), Constitution vs. Guerrier (19 August 1812), and Chesapeake vs. Shannon (1 June 1813). Even those ships that did not fight a major engagement get the opportunity to play out a historical opportunity missed. Additionally, players will find it easy to create hypothetical pairings to see what might happen.
