Carrying over the theme from the weekend's "Talk like a Pirate day", I kept at that last hard mission in Age of Booty. It took a few attempts before I realized I didn't actually need to capture all four towns to win, I could just have more than any of my pirate opponents when the time ran out. The first few attempts at this strategy ended with a stalematey - two towns was not enough.
So I snagged the towns in line with my base, upgraded them all the way, then messed around defending them and upgrading my ship until there was only a couple minutes left and my stores were full of supplies - zipped over to an under-defended town, took it over, upgraded it and frantically cycled my screen amongst the three towns while cheering any villain who was attacking my nearest foe. Bing! Got it, finishing the hard levels, and unlocking a couple achievements for doing so.
