I was dubious about this game, having played quite a few naval games and they never really gave me what I was looking for… something quick and fun to play. This game is fantastic, its rule system is very easy to understand and you are playing in no time. the real nuance is the subtlety in the rules that reward clever planning, where to put your ships and when to make your move.....and torpedoes don't always work!! Great game with lots of laughs. Recommended!!
