Pirates CSG Master Spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/18Z-x-z9gaWiKFLk-kw1weamc0A1-NxMN3xLjWWKsUmA/edit?usp=sharing 

I will also release the documents that led to this episode that Woelf has shared with me, so everyone can look at them! 

Question of the Day: Which of these game pieces would you most want to use? Which ones excite you the most?

Woelf has shared some original Wizkids spreadsheets with me to help in my process to create a "master spreadsheet" that I hope to turn into a second database, similar to the one at Miniature Trading. In these incredible documents are many "juicy tidbits" of information, a true treasure trove of cool stuff for a Pirates fanatic like me.  
How crazy is this?! New Pirates information 13 years later! XD I can't wait to use some of these new game pieces in games sometime. 

Pros of my spreadsheet: 
-Don’t have to scroll to the right for anything important (flavor text and treasure values off to the right) (Basically a rule of Pirates CSG spreadsheets in my opinion - if you can’t easily see all gameplay-relevant data without scrolling, columns should be shrunk down for ease of use.) 
-All flavor text included 
-Factions color coded for maximum ease of use (I like the new design so much that I think I will be converting my custom sets to the same color scheme!) 
-Took the best stuff from each resource used (Holofernes’ notes from Jolly Roger + filtering, flavor text from Wizkids spreadsheets, Miniature Trading database for cannons and some flavor text (a/b for crewfer twofers/etc are lowercase because that is how they appear on the WK documents) 
-Includes unreleased and “lost” items from official Wizkids documents 

Cons: 
-Some columns do not display well at all with the filter view. Those are the ones I slanted so they would be more legible (it gets worse if they are horizontal). 
-Filter view does not seem to work with Google Sheets version for online viewing, unless you create a temporary filter view yourself. Even tried allowing editing mode and locking the sheets, but that didn’t work either. (https://productforums.google.com/d/msg/docs/68RwOGYUCqA/PFFYjiaKBwAJ) 
To view filters in online version: Data-Filter Views-Create new temporary filter view 
The .xlsx file of the spreadsheet has the filters. 
-Likely some minor mistakes due to copy/paste errors or excessive dragging of cell data. (please point out so I can fix them)
