Although it only mentions it in the 'Example of Play', it took me a few rounds to realise that you only use the dice coins on the Intercept! card for the British forces. If intercepting with warships and raiders, you use the 'attack' coins on their cards instead.

Is this interpretation correct?

I love this game, and we have had some great sessions-once we figured out some of the less than obvious rules.

There needs to be a clear bold statement that there are TWO KINDS OF INTERCEPT-German Raiders against Merchants which use the Ships' "Coins" and British Forces vrs. German Ships which use the generic intercept Coins. Why these weren't just called and labeled as factors-rather than the "coins" monicker-I am at a loss to explain.

Also a bit more clarity on the challenge and response process, as well as keeping all rules that effect given actions together, and not divided up with part in the rules and part on the cards.

All that being said, this is a great game, which after having some of these fog banks removed is a lot of fun to play.
