The Hunters is a solitaire tactical level game placing you in command of a German U-boat during WWII. Your mission is to destroy as much Allied Shipping and as many Capital ships as possible while advancing your crew quality and increasing your commander rank culminating in special decoration ‒ all while remembering you have to make it home.
The Hunters is purposely designed to deliver a brisk yet intensive gaming experience that forces many decisions upon you as you will take command among the major German U-boat models in service during WWII, and try to complete an entire tour.
Those familiar with the classic Avalon Hill game title, B-17: Queen of the Skies, will come to enjoy the same type of gaming experience of the German U-boat War. All major U-boat models are accounted for with every level of detail including period of service, armaments, crew make-up, damage capacity, and more.
Updated file that:
1. Corrected the Close range 'Damage Probability' and 'Estimated Damage' data, factoring in the probability of escaping the Pre-attack detection roll.
2. Got rid of the annoying Macro message when opening the file.
The Hunted GFX - Combined Patrol Log pack (version 1.1).
The Hunted GFX Project is a full graphical overhaul for Gregory Smith's The Hunted addon. It includes all charts, U-Boat mats, patrol log and counters required for The Hunted (look for it in the files below).
The Hunted GFX Project is approved by Greg and is considered as official part of The Hunted.
This archive includes the following patrol logs:
- The Hunted Patrol Log (.pdf) with notes related to The Hunted events (such as availability of U-Boats, defence equipment, etc.);
- The Hunters Patrol Log (.pdf) with additional notes (as descripted above);
- Combined Patrol Log (.xls) that includes both logs descripted above (see different sheets there).
This version is fully compatible with The Hunted v1.4 rules....
The Hunted version 1.4. "Betatest" version. All obvious goofs are gone :) Includes fixes and new rules for "hull holed" results from Tsetse 57mm gun and 3" rocket attacks against U-boats. Contains rules and excel spreadsheet for patrol log. Use with Alexey's charts and U-boat mats.
Created a 3d6 random events chart to reduce the accident-prone-officers scenarios (swimming death?) and add a little more weight to the value of early war German code-breaking efforts. There are some patrol ending options, but no instant-captain-death options. Also, I moved the Milk Cow to random events. I'm still not sure how I feel about that, but I figured I'd solicit feedback.
