Hurricane Irma. Will stay in history for many records. Its intensity and projected path may turn this storm into one of the most destructive hurricane for Florida.

We gathered for some gaming yesterday. Four of us were there; the other two texted to say they'd be there about an hour later. Fortunately, I had Atlantic Storm with me, perfect wargame-flavored filler. Taught it and all had fun. Somewhat to my surprise, I actually won - getting a 7-pt convoy near the end of the game was the margin of victory. Just goes to show, it's not the size of your 'victory stack', it's their average value.

Made it to page 7. Further than I thought I would to be honest. The game I'd like to try would be this one. I'm a huge fan of submarines warfare and the history involved in this one would make it fascinating to play for sure.

1.49 at GW in PHX. Box has scuffs but complete and in very good condition. Might be worth something, if I can find someone interested.

ATLANTIC STORM - 1 play

I've always enjoyed Atlantic Storm - it's a good filler for wargamers, so I carry it with me often. We had a game at Ohio HeavyCon in October. I didn't win.

First off, I don't have a whole lot of microbadge ideas, so I suppose most of the requests I'll make are existing microbadges that catch my eye.

However, almost since I started collecting microbadges, I've wanted an "Atlantic Storm Fan" one, in the tradition of the other game-fan badges.

I even tried to submit my own, once, in a futile and ill-advised attempt (long story, won't bore you with details).

But this is my concept:



This is a Convoy Card. These are the objects fought over during the course of the game.

In the lower left-hand corner, there are icons which represent sinking ships. The number of sinking ships reflects the number of victory points the card is worth. These are, as far as I can tell, unique to Atlantic Storm across many other games (at least in terms of how they are employed).

My idea was to isolate one of these sinking ship icons with the dark blue background as the microbadge. I am not sure how well the ship's superstructure (which is what makes the icon recognizable) will translate, but if anyone could do it, I'm sure you'd be the person.

I can get you a flat-scanner scan of one of these cards if that would help.

So, consider that my "January" request. I'll hunt around for a couple other appropriate existing ones, but thought I'd start with this one. Let me know what you think!

Thanks again.

Why I bought this: I had Pacific Typhoon, but I wanted the original. I managed to get it in a trade for a reasonable deal (it goes for stupid money on eBay).

Odds of getting played in the next 12 months: 25%

Other comments: The iconography et al are not quite as intuitive as it's GMT successor. That said, it's got a smaller range of years so would definitely be a different game.

Normally after the auction, I play in the Auction tournament. But since I'd won my game and qualified for the semifinals on Monday, so I played Atlantic Storm for something to do. Usually I play this at the bar with a beer in my hand, so playing in an actual tournament seemed a little out of place.

I ended up with a weird hand- the "play 2 cards or change a suit to combined" for both the Allies and the Nazis. I thought they were too good to dump, but it took a long time to find a time to play them. I also had a couple of good surface ships, but surface is really hard to play. So, I ended up playing to the limits of my ability, and lost

Another game with Terry, Chris, Sarah, and I think one other person who is escaping my sleep deprived memory ... I won this one which is odd for me since I usually struggle with Storm and Typhoon. I think I was just the quiet one at the table who got lucky when he had to.

Not sure how we decided to play this oldy. It is probably better with 3+ but it was okay with 2. Got my butt kicked.

Average rating: 6.5, but I rate it a 10. I LOVE this game. It's super easy, it's a wargame-y game that I can teach and get non-wargamers to play, and it's really fun when people get all table talky trying to win people over to their side each hand.

The luck of the draw can have quite an effect on the game, but smart hand management (and manipulation of the other players) can usually offset it. Playing with the maximum number of players also helps offset the luck element.
