WWI Tactical Naval Combat Comparisons
I am playing this "experiment" partially because I often have derided the Avalanche Press GREAT WAR AT SEA series tactical combat rules as being too simplistic. I admit I am a true Clash of Arms Admiralty Trilogy fan and prefer that type of combat resolution model. That said, there are times that simple is better.
Basics - The Basic Scenario used is drawn from GREAT WAR AT SEA - Mediterranean (1st Edition) Battle Scenario 7. This hypothetical scenario pits Goeben and Breslau against the British battlecruisers Indomitable and Indefatigable and light cruiser Dublin. The player with the most victory points wins.
Each game will include:
Prep Time - Time necesary to prepare for play.
Play Time - Time necessary to play out the battle (this includes time needed for me to keep notes which will admittedly add time...but not too much).
Battle Narrative - A synopsis of the battle.
Comments- My perspective on the game as it depicted the battle.
For my miniatures battles, I use the counters from Avalanche Press. These are great overhead views and colorful. For fog of war, they have generic backsides to assist you.
I will be adding different games of the this same scenario as I can.
