It was the early eighties. I was visiting my aunt and my uncle had a NAVAL WARFARE game, it had a board, with full color illustrations of islands etc. The game was RISK like in its play, it had multicolored plastic ship minis, as well as plastic fortification minis and I think cannons and thing of the like.

So I would say it was 17th-early 19th century based.

It was a very cool game and left quite the impression on me as a young man, but to this day I have no idea what it was or what it was called.

It was not Broadsides and Boarding Parties, it was more along the lines of RISK as I stated. Any help is greatly appreciated. I just want to find a reference to this game, and or read about it.
To make sure I wasnt dreaming.


Thanks gang, any help is greatly appreciated.

Carrier Strike comes to mind, but a lot of the things you mentioned don't quite match up, so I'm probably wrong.

Wow, that game is from the sixties huh.. Sheesh, I had no idea it was that old when I played it when I was a kid.

Damn, and I thought it was so cool.

Man oh man, NICE CATCH. Wish I could give you some geek gold, but I dont have any.
Either way, nice find and thanks.

I remember playing it as a kid in the eighties too. I don't have one but these people do and they've got it markeds that they're willing to trade it away:

Thanks man. I dont know if I will try to acquire it or not. I just remember thinking it was so cool, I totally forgot about the mines.

It would be great to have such an old game in my collection.

Either way, nice digging and thanks for the great find.
