Tonnage War

Other Games

This is a horse of a different color: a card game that simulates a World War battle between an Allied convoy and German submarines.  This is a work in progress, and I would appreciate any comments from those brave enough to play it.  Supplied components include:

         Rules

         Cards for subs and escort forces

The italicized portions of the rules are still very much in play-test mode.  You will see that there is only one scenario, although I designed the game with multiple scenarios in mind.  Note that playing the game required two decks of playing cards and a twenty-sided die.  You need not mount and cut out the sub and escort cards -- a passable alternative is to use (somewhat more generic) hand-lettered counters.  Please give me your comments and suggestions.
