Sid Meier's Pirates! Hints
|To get REALLY REALLY rich...||Contributed by Kasey Chang (4625) on Jan 06, 2001.|
To get really rich, you HAVE to play the higher difficulty levels to get bigger shares, as well as find ways to make more during each voyage. Usually, that means you gather a HUGE band (10+ ships, almost 1000 men) and just go straight down the coast and sweep all the Spanish coastal towns, and hope to run into the Silver Train or the Gold Fleet. The problem with the big band approach is your reputation will precede you, and it'll only work a few times. Smaller bands can execute more precise strikes, as you may be able to grab a galleon that got separate from the fleet and such, but you can't take on the big cities. It's up to you.
