Venue FAQ in effect.

Off the coast of California Baja raiders come. Secretly America lusts for California.  So too does its
neighbor to the East.  Can the Spainsh missions survive the great uprisin of 1775? Are the troubles
fomented by American Business men? By China?

Can you change history?  Place 3 Forts on the coast of California 3L apart. All Forts have 4 2L4 cannons
and can cancel one ability per turn.  Fire pot specialist is the only thing that can burn down the Missions.  
All other shots have no effect.

Players will place 3 islands, 8 Treasure Coins, 15 gold to simulate two nations vieing for the control of
and subsequent destruction of the California missions.  The game ends when all missions have burned.  
Missions burn but fire does not spread.  When all cannons of a mission have been engulfed in flames, thus
making the fort derilict, the final shot can be performed by any cannon since the fort no longer is capable
of protection by either God nor Gun.

Point total: 40 plus each player may have 4 free crew (named or not) that have been hired or assigned to
them by their nation to simmulate national influence in their effort to sack and destroy the missions.
Missions have 1d6 +1 gold & a UT is found
on a roll of 5-6.  The destruction will later in history prove to make Spain hesitate and then loose its war
with Mexico.

This is one of the unknown reasons (ask any historian) as to why America now owns California.

California will be represented by a group of 9 islands all touching.  Place them in the center of the map.  
Each player will place their islands at least 3L away from California.

Object: Get gold.
