More Historical War at SEA

We have a new ” More Historical War at Sea” proposal from Avi Solomon. Playtest volunteers are welcome. Post your comments or experience with this proposal.

BOARD CHANGES

Barents and Med are worth 3 POC for Axis control.

Baltic is worth 2 POC for Axis control, 3 POC for Allied control

Game Length increased to 10 turns

OOB and Reinforcement changes listed below

Some ship values have changed.

SPECIAL RULES

1. American ships can enter the North and South Atlantic, the North Sea, the USA and England.  At the end of the turn, any US ships at sea can return to the USA.

2. British ships cannot base in Russia. British ships at sea in the Barents at the end of each turn must return to either England or the USA.

3. Convoys now have a specific destination port shown by the letter after its number.  E means England, M means Malta and R means Russia.  The Allies now get 4 POC per Convoy that reaches its destination, reduced by 1 for each damage on it, then the POC value is halved and rounded up if its destination is England. The Malta Convoy starts in England.  If it is disabled in the South Atlantic, it returns to England. If disabled in the Mediterranean Sea, it reaches its destination, Malta.

4. Allied ships in the South Atlantic that are disabled return to England, not the Neutral Port.

5. At the end of the turn, Allied ships at sea in the South Atlantic can return to Malta if the Mediterranean is not Axis controlled.

6. Free French ships appear in England.

7. German ships lose their Special +1 to their attack dice while in the North and South Atlantic.

8. The Axis LBA is placed before the Allied LBA.

9. Italian ships are rolled for and moved before the Allies roll for availability and move.

10. The Axis LBA cannot enter the Mediterranean until Turn 3.

11. Unless the Axis control the Mediterranean Sea for two consecutive turns the Italians surrender at the start of Turn 9. If the Italians surrender, remove all Italian ships from the game.
