Just wondered why the game isn't called 'U-Boat: The Board Game', does anyone know?

Thanks, so excited for this.

Probably because no-one would like to run into copyright issues of that dimension.

Well, we actually made the effort to check out whether it made sense obtaining the 'Das Boot' license. In short - it didn't shake
