Default Sid Meier's Pirates!!!

Heh...

Ok this is more like my speed. :)

Fairly close to the same "feel" as the original Pirate's Gold, but with improved graphics.

I can see me spending a few hours looking for the spanish treasure fleet.

Yeah, good times with that game. My biggest gripes were that you had to capture ships to make any money (as opposed to sinking them), and that it was pretty much impossible to make a living as a merchant.
