While I don't feel any game of Captain Sonar has ever been too long, there was a moment in one of our gaming sessions where we wanted to have a super quick game to end our 'Captain Sonar session' before moving on to other games.

Thus, we tried playing real-time but on the turn-based side of the sheets. The smaller map size and fewer function-bars on the first-mate's sheet made the game go by very quickly, but it still had everything you'd want from a Captain Sonar game - tension, quick thinking, emphasis on communication, etc.

While we've only played one game like this so far, it worked out really well, and brought some interesting, albeit subtle differences in strategy/tactics. Has anyone else tried this? Let me know what you think!

Haven't had a chance to play real time yet, but your idea sounds good. I'll keep it in mind for when the time is right.
