MODERN NAVAL BATTLES - CAMPAIGN EXPANSION!
Is up for pre-order!

Now you can build a fleet and take it into one mission after another. The result of each mission carries forward to affect the next mission, and your entire campaign!

This 112 card expansion adds new ship cards, mission cards, strategy cards, and counters to your Modern Naval Battles games!

We've added a couple new ships for each existing navy, as well as the new navy of India!

David, thanks for posting this. I will definitely pre-order. This is a vastly underappreciated game - it is really one of my favorites, both in terms of subject matter and gameplay.

Preorder's in!


We are also taking pre-orders also here at NWS ($14.99) and I just talked to Dan V. on the phone and submitted a VERY large advanced order to help fund the print run and to speed up the production time frame.

Dan is a good friend of mine and I have been playing his games since the 1980s so I will always support his efforts. We both agreed that this MNB Expansion #2 should be a top priority to get released ASAP.

Follow up, I just asked Dan to also prioritize a spot on BGG for the expansion.. stay tuned, it should be up shortly.

Thanks for supporting DVG.

Thanks.

Cool Christopher.

BTW, enjoying the heck out of Steam and Iron. And while I have you here, an Age of Sail mod with some sort of campaign engine (a la 1805: Sea of Glory) would rock...


Cool.. yeah, we are already kicking around ideas for future editions for the engine and both FW and myself are a couple of fighting sail fans so it may just happen.

Thanks.

No wild speculation yet about the ships that will be in Expansion 2?

No demand to know which ships of the Indian navy???

No comments on the VIRAAT having Command Capacity 1 as well as offensive & defensive weapon symbols?
(La Salle, Blue Ridge and Titan don't... will other ships be like VIRAAT???)

Yet everyone is quiet...
Must be that every-ones is patient!

I suppose good things come to those that wait....

me... I'm itching to get the expansion!

I'm also looking forward to the campaign engine...

I like stand alone games... but also like linked and scenerios... especially ones where some-one else has done the thinking/preparation....

I suppose I'll just have to be patient! whistle

G'day all,

I've talked to Dan about the campaign system, not much that I can reveal except that the system will provide for three level of game length/size, multiple players and there will be linkage between games (eg what happens to a ship in one game will effect it's use in the next) as part of the campaign system and isn't dependant on having expansion #1.

Dan also says that pre-orders are slowly coming in... which means that it isn't yet on the way to the printers.. cry

If you know of anyone who might be interested - please encourage them to get their pre-orders in, I'm itching to get my copy as soon asd possible! gulp

Hi, printing is not being delayed on this one.. we posted a very large advanced order which helped moved things along. We will increase our advanced order as more orders are placed also.

Thanks.

Just to make you all green with envy goo

I also got to proof read the campaign rules...

The final printed version is of course slightly different to:
www.dvg.com/mnbampaignexpansion.pdf" rel="nofollow">http://images.dvg.com/www.dvg.com/mnbampaignexpansion.pdf

Clearer, with examples and graphics...

Which means I could start playing today... whistle

But would rather wait for the very nice product that DVG produce!
