Can someone please describe the differences between the first and second edition, specifically to clarify what you need to use the new rules with the old material?
If I understood correctly, I can use the second edition rules with the first edition material if I get the hull ratings from the new U-boat cards, but I also need some new counters.

Thanks!

Gabriele just read the new rules, you will have to do it anyway.
There will be all the new elements mentioned and described.

I too have the first edition and am planning on "converting" it to the 2nd Ed. Still waiting for some nice person to post the HULL Ratings for the subs.

Other than the HULL ratings, you will need to get and read the 2nd Edition Rulebook.

As for the new tokens, there are pics of them in the rulebook that you can use as an example. These are the ones I see that are "NEW": Engine, Gun, Light No effect, Heavy 2 Stress, Heavy Sunk, Flooding, Hull, Stun, Light stun, Periscope, 2 Tubes, Electronics, and Oil Leak.

At least these are the ONLY ones I see from the PDF 2nd Ed. Rulebook that are different from the 1st Ed. Maybe some nice person will also post what the new counter sheets look like.

Hope that helps!

Jim

I noted that the HITS from Escorts to Subs are Different now. For example, instead of Hitting the Sub after Detection and adding STRESS, it now "hits" when detected and you draw a Heavy/Light HIT marker with different "types" of hits on the back. It would be nice to see a set of NEW counters scanned in so I could make my own set. (that is the way I understand how it works without actually seeing a new copy)

I bought this during the Kickstarter campaign and am eagerly awaiting delivery (misprints and all) to give this a whirl.
