Here's a book I draw on to play games with, both one-shot and campaign. The book is primarily written focused on destroyer engagements in both theaters of the war, but it is heavy surface combat with all surface ship classes and includes ASW engagements and convoy escorts as well. It has the histori...

My Eastern Fleet game order arrived today.

After a quick read-thru, it has potential ! :D

Will probably run the first battle scenario - Escape From Java as hybrid of hidden movement and using VaS rules for the tactical combat.

Hi ! Don't panick about Leyte Gulf. It's someting like a monster colection edition... In fact you can recreate the pacific war without it. Eastern Fleet is the lighter one, not by rules meaning, but scenarios contents (7 historicals and 2-3 hypoticals). You can go see by yourself at the Avalanche P...

If you are looking for Hex map, give a try to the Avalanche Press Second World war at Sea series. In fact, the Operational game Maps come in squares representing about 36 nautical miles, and each turn equals 4 hours of real time. The counters represents 1 ship (or a fleet if you regroup them) and e...

and a very good idea it is too. The approach is similar to using my "Hunting the Beast" operational campaign system that was in SP and (in a slightly modified form) in OOB. I've played in dozens (probably now hundreds) of campaigns of this type and they are a great way to play. Much more satisfying...

Using VaS with Avalon Hill Classics

I picked up a group of old AH classic games ( Submarine, Bismarck, War At Sea, Midway, Victory In The Pacific) and was wondering if anyone has applied the VaS rules to play out some of these or the included scenarios in them? Be fun to see if the Midway game translate well using VaS after movement/d...

Re: Feed back on scenario in S&P 52

So, what does everyone think of the scenario in this month's issue. The more feedback I get, the better job I can do in the future. Enjoyed it, keep them coming! The more content available, the more it will draw players to play more than just the historical re-eneactments and the inevitable "... bu...

Binding doesn't matter much to me - I pull out all the pages & put them in plastic sleeves in a 3-ring binder to protect the pages from all the flipping, spills, stains, rips, etc. players would put on them from flipping thru the rules while playing.

No, just not very well thought out :)

I liked the scenario idea..same country, equal fleets..nice rogue admiral ( Red October) feel .

But, I don't make history, just read about it . . .

S&P Viva La France

Nice screanrio...equally matched, but being French, they'd probably both surrender to each other without firing a shot.

Sacre Bleu !

i think for normal games, unless there is an enormous table theres not much point... i'd be willing to try it though.

Love this idea! I like to host/run historical re-enactments but not telling players the actual battles i.e. Battle of the Komandorski Islands, Balikpapan, etc. This will help preserve the uncertainity for those players who like to "gather interlligence" about the scenario they will be playing by doi...

Too bad they charge $$$ for it.

I'll stick with player-supported type tools...Excels, or other avenues of gaming support than a pay-for type thing
