The 3 book slipcase

Postby Garydee » Thu Aug 23, 2018 5:47 pm

I have a question for you, Matt. As we know VAS 2 will be in a 3 hardback books in a slipcase type of format. How are you going to get the rulebook(book 1) into the size of a hardback since the game is rules light?

Book one will be massive compared to book two as it currently stands. :D Although the British fleet could fill a book on its own!

I guess there will plenty of history.

Book 1 contains all the rules - so as well as the moving and fighting mechanics (which, you are right, are rules-lite), you also get submersibles, radar, aircraft, kamikaze units, coastal invasions, coastal craft and defences... lots more...

Book 2 contains scenarios and history, while Book 3 has all the fleet lists.M Book 1 is the smallest of the three, but it is still most substantial!
