I need help, I cannot remember the name of the game. It had a large 3D board with 3 levels that only the sub player could see, on top was the destroyers that moved around and tried to find the subs on the lower levels. Is this ringing a bell with anyone?

I believe the game you're looking for is Sub Search. Cool old school floor-time gaming!

Damn, I was thinking about that one only yesterday, and what a PITA it was to put together every time!

Hardly worth the effort either, with only an idiot younger sister to play it with.
My parents weren't big on inspecting presents for playability... I remember they got us Masterpiece and The Inventors, which are no fun with two.
(but we got our own back with that ringy-dingy dice tower in the latter game...)

I had a chance for a Sub Search buy at a thrift store a few years ago. Passed on it and still regret it. I just couldn't justify transporting the thing (I was traveling).

Both Sub Search and The Inventors are games I look back at fondly from childhood. I often think about getting them for nostalgia, but realize they likely won't hold up today. My Triumvirate would also include Situation Four.
