Default The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43

Not sure if this is the right forum to post this since this area talks about PC games, but there is a new sub board game that is getting a lot of positive talk lately. I plan to pick up this game when my FLGS has it in stock.

The Hunters: German U-Boats at War, 1939-43



Boardgamegeek describes the game as follows:


"Hostilities with England effective immediately."
the time is: 1256 hours, 3 September 1939
The Hunters is a solitaire tactical level game placing you in command of a German U-boat during WWII. Your mission is to destroy as much Allied Shipping and as many Capital ships as possible while advancing your crew quality and increasing your commander rank culminating in special decoration ‒ all while remembering you have to make it home.
The Hunters is purposely designed to deliver a brisk yet intensive gaming experience that forces many decisions upon you as you will take command among the major German U-boat models in service during WWII, and try to complete an entire tour.
Those familiar with the classic Avalon Hill game title, B-17: Queen of the Skies, will come to enjoy the same type of gaming experience of the German U-boat War. All major U-boat models are accounted for with every level of detail including period of service, armaments, crew make-up, damage capacity, and more.
Game contents will comprise:

  • One 1/2 inch full-color, 2-sided counter sheet (there are now 174 counters instead of 140)
  • Rules Booklet with Designer Notes
  • Four Player Aid Cards, 2-sided
  • U-Boat Patrol Log Sheet, 2-sided
  • Four 2 sided U-Boat Display Mats
  • U-Boat Combat Mat
  • Three 6-sided and two 10-sided dice
  • Boxed
Anticipated release date: 6 December 2013

Default A great game

I bought this and immediately loved it. You don't need a computer to play!!

They are coming out with a Pacific version too.

I, and others, have added numerous variant rules to the game site at boardgamegeek.com to enhance the game further.

It is worth a look, guys.
