I'm interested in getting this game. I like the blue cover but don't care for the red one. Which one is being used?

Mine is the Red cover showing the action inside the conning tower.

Thanks for the response.

That's unfortunate but the game's the thing. I'll just avert my eyes. Wonder what the other cover is used for- magazine only version?

The cover artworks, plus a couple of other ones in the article were done in 1943 by Georges Schreiber.


Edit: the Game Edition is the Red cover.

Finally got to play this this week. First impressions, rules too fiddly and irritatingly set out, got to the first encounter, started to set up and lost interest. Game gone in the bin.

Same. Potential for a great game but no indication that any reasonable development was done with it. I'm done with DG. Midway solitaire and now this.

Agreed with comments here. Zero support from DG is so typical of their all-to-frequent duds.

Not much help for those disappointed with this one, but the next S&T issue (Alesia) contained a very good game.

One of the more egregious “Decision Disasters” that still leaves a bad taste.
