Hello,

Have there been any modern sub games? I already have the Hunters & soon will have the Hunted.

My question is have there been any modern sub games that feature submarine warfare between 1990s to 2016s? I'm curious as it would be awesome to try out a modern attack sub in a fictional or alternate scenario.

Are there any designers working on something like that or are there other games? I know of Attack Sub, Harpoon 4, and other sub games that were WWII or not so modern; I really would like to know if there's indeed a really modern one.

One coming out soon that looks great is Captain Sonar.

Steam Torpedo: First Contact is an ok, light weight 2-player game that's 50% off at Barnes & Noble right now.

If you're looking for more of a war simulation, I'd ask on the war games board for recommendations.

They Come Unseen Is a Cold War era pre-nuclear sub game, NATO subs vs USSR hunter-killer frigates in the Barents Sea. Uses hidden movement mechanic. It's designed by Cmndr Andy Bedford, a Perisher-qualified (former) Sub Commander.

A good book to go along with it is 'The Silent Deep' by James Jinks and Peter Hennessy. Covers the UK Sub Service since WW2. Fascinating stuff.

There's no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and yeah the human tragedy consists of the necessity of living with the consequences, under pressure, under pressure. -Courage (For Hugh Maclennan): The Tragically Hip

An older game - but maybe worth looking up? Attack Sub
