Description Edit | History

Attack Sub is a card based wargame similar to Up Front. The topic is modern submarine warfare (Mostly US/Nato vs. Soviet/Warsaw Pact, but there is an occasional Falklands War scenario.)

Each player has one or more submarines and/or surface ships. Each ship is represented on an individual large card with counters showing current contact status and damage.

Each player plays cards to increase their "contact level" relative to their opponent. Contact level abstractly represents relative position and sonar readings. It is possible for one ship to have a better contact on his enemy than the enemy has on him. When high enough contact level is reached, torpedoes can be fired.

A new version of my Player Aid. I tried to keep the original to one page but decided it would be more thorough and easier to understand with 2 pages. Please let me know if you see any errors. Thanks.

7 Card-less Attack Sub
This is the rules and some ship cards for a version of Attack sub that I worked on that uses Dice for most things rather than cards. This is a first draft, so any suggestions are welcome.

4 Ship cards for China and Taiwan
Well as it says it's ship cards for China and Taiwan. I used Paul Norell's publisher file in the Soviet ship card file, so most credit goes to him. I just changed some pics and stats around. And a few minor changes.
