Been looking at this one basically cause I spotted a 'cheap-ish' copy on internet, only to now realise it's in French, and if there is one language I'm struggling with....soblue

You've guessed it.

Will it be a struggle to get a translation?
or even better a rulebook in a language I do understand?

You have the rules + errata in English available for download here: http://compassgames.com/show/downloads

You still need the scenarios + charts. No problem with the charts because the text on modifiers is also in the rules, but for the scenarios... struggle a bit, sorry.

Thanks Edgar,

very helpfull.

not sure if I'll want this, the map seems to put me off a bit.
but maybe just because I do not yet know the rules.

on the other hand I'm interested in U-boot war so.....
tempted...

The french edition is no only french, is a dual edition: French and German. Can you read german?

About the map: it's fully functional, you need there what you see actually. What's putting you off?

German? no problem.

the map, well from what I've seen on the geek I got a very cluttered and confusing impression.

but that is probably cause I'm not familiar with the game, I guess it will all seem logical when I learn it.

like with Omaha beach, a gameboard of wich many thought someone'd been sick on it, but once you become familiar with it....

Hey, just noticed there is an expansion aswell, as if the game didn't seem epic enough.
wonder what that's all about, game seems intimidating enough without it.

Then, if you can read german, you can enjoy the game fully.

It's not as cluttered as it seems. It's an area map that contains info inside the area, but it's not cluttered, you have the subs onside the area at the top or the bottom, the table in middle. Try the game

The expansion is about an alternate starting of the war, that lets you play and see what would have happened if more large range type subs would have been built.

Well funny thing is I had convinced myself I really did not need more games, but the pleasantly priced French version has me reconsider.

You sound like a serious fan of the game.

Just wondered, why does it say here volume 1, or is the expansion considered volume 2?

I think that the volume 2 will be the continuation until the end of the war.

Gracias,

Doesn't really answer my question as I don't know the size of his table, but this starting to convince me I must have this.

Well, I'm not at home now to give you the exact size, but you can see that the map is more or less 4xA4 wide and 2xA4 high. So it's in the order of 840mm x 600mm.

So, to end all confusion, Steel Wolves IS Das Boot?

Sofar I had the impression these were different games somehow.

and is it worth getting the expansion aswell?
