Well, I received all three games yesterday afternoon and played my first patrol just now with Silent Victory. I have to say...damn. This is a good game.

Started in December 1941 with a Tambor class sub at Pearl Harbor. I was issued my first patrol in the Empire sea and encountered three separate convoys during the patrol. One of the lone freighters that I encountered was struck by four torpedoes, all but one was a a dud. And the impacted torpedo rolled the lowest possible damage. My second round of combat fired two torps, both missing. Finally, on my third round, fired two more with one missing and the other striking and sinking it.

That dud torpedo roll (1d6 where 1-4 is a dud) is brutal.

The game strikes me as having excellent historical accuracy. I'll be having a lot of fun with these games.
