I am looking for an individual ship level naval war game set during
World War II. I must have the whole gambit including aircraft
carriers, cruisers, subs, etc. I would love if it already had a vassal
module but if not I will make one of my own.

So far I have found Command at Sea but I fear it may be too detailed.
Those who have played it, do you think it would be easy to grasp?
Also, the work involved in digitizing all of those ship reference
cards is daunting. Are there other options?

I am interested in all theaters of the naval war, including the
Atlantic, Pacific and Mediterranean.

What are my options?

I think the old Avalon Hill game Bismarck might have what you're looking for. It's been a while since I played it but if I recall, it had individual ships, there were a few aircraft carriers etc..

I'll look into that but I really expected more choices. Is this market really this under served?

Avalanche has the "Second World War at Sea" series.
for example.

If that's too complex, try A&A War at Sea.


Somewhere in between is Victory at Sea.

Avalanche SWWAS Series has everything you are looking for and it won't overwhelm you with rules.

Also keep watch on their site as they are having a 12 days of Christmas special, offering better than 50% off - including some of the SWWAS series games.

One of today's specials is Second World War at Sea: Midway.
