The core game mechanics of Old Salt
Grid-movement to navigate into positions of strength or out of enemy territory. Ships can sail up to three tiles unless aided by an awakened tradewind which allows them to sail up to five tiles.
Attack the enemy with everything you've got! The further away your target is, the harder the shot will be. Ships can fire in any direction but it's always beneficial to use broadside cannons to deal massive damage to your enemies.
The first player to seize six islands is victorious. The more islands a faction controls, the greater their income is each turn. Use the increased income to swiftly defeat your enemies and secure the sea for your faction.
