Default Board Game "Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-1918" now available

I hope this is the right place to post this.

For those who enjoy board games and are into U-boats of WW1, I've just released my "print and play" board game "Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-1918". It's based on Gregory Smith's "The Hunters" and is the result of two years of research and six months of pretty hard work. It's a 15MB download and is freely available on BoardGameGeek. Here's the link:

Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-1918

Here are some screenshots:

This looks really cool! I just finished reading most of the rule book. It is a lot more thought out than some other custom board games I have seen.

Definitely going to see if I can play a game of this tonight.

Also I wanted to compliment Beery on the documentation. The rule book is organized well and I like having the separate PDFs based on the situation.

Just a quick update: the game is pretty much out of the beta stage now. People have been playing it, I've had lots of feedback, fixed some bugs and people seem to be enjoying it.

Total congrats, Beery. I'm looking forward to this. Downloaded a copy and hope to see a formal boxed version one day.

Hi again folks.

"Raiders of the Deep" now has its own dedicated page on Boardgamegeek, which basically means it is a fully tested and finished "official" standalone game. The webpage is here:

...and now I'm a published board game designer. Yay!

Anyway, just thought I'd post once more here. Subsim was very much a part of the development of "Raiders of the Deep". This is where the idea first came to me, and the game would not have happened without this community, so I owe everyone here a big debt of gratitude. Thanks, folks!
