Do you think there is any other way we could spread the word around here? It seems to me that there could be a lot of peopl interested in the game here, but they don't even know about its existence
Looks great, really - congratulations! I know the Kickstarter campaign is long finished now, but do you do some side orders perhaps?

I'm trying to get this game here in the states. But they are telling me it's not out until mid May or June? Is that true? Can I get it earlier?

Amazon says June 28th I guess. The date might not be right but the month is. Gotta wait

Currently the Kickstarter board games are being shipped to backers, with retailer editions going on sale a month after this.
So should be mid June, if you wish to get a copy earlier you can buy one from Europe of someone selling there copy.

I was a kickstarter backer, live in the United States and I got my copy last week. Have put about 15 hours into it.

It is not a subsim in board game form. It's a crew/resource management game. I'm an avid SH3/GWX player so I come from that perspective.

Feel free to ask me any specific questions you have about its mechanics. I've enjoyed my time with the game so far, but it does have its pros and cons.

Hello there
I am also a SH3 fan and I would like to ask you.
Is it worth getting? I find the U-boat game too focused in crew management which I always switch off in SH3

I still can't get mine, they told me I needed to pay for shipping but they have not replied where to send the money. Does anyone know how to pay for the shipping, thanks

If you disliked crew management in SH3 the you may not like U-Boot the boardgame.

Crew management is the very heart of the game. I would say 80% of the time you are planning how to execute your mission. 10% of the time you are moving mini's around on the boat and updating the order track, morale, track, and the activations tracks for the individual crewmen. 10% of the time you are stalking a target and then firing on it or evading escorts and dealing depth charge attacks.

Of the orders and activations at least half of what you are doing on any watch is routine maintenance and/or repairs on the boat. Things like diesel check up. Electrical check up. Periscope adjustment. Torpedo tube check up. Your engineering crew eats up activations fast.

The board game version is really a logistical simulator and the resource you are managing are orders and activations. The rest of what happens are just events that interfere with your plans.

Question: how much was your shipping? I was a backer since Feb 2018 and they say they will not send my game until I pay shipping. Except they won't tell me how to pay shipping or how much it will be. I have sent my address three times already.

Hello Subsim,

I've chcecked your account on BackerKit. You don't pay for shipping costs and you didn't enter your address.That's why you don't have your game.

Best Regards,

Agata Jurczyszyn
That's why I don't have my game, she says. Not helpful.

I paid 17 pounds sterling in June of last year. I don't remember if it was a separate charge after the kickstarter or was all at the same time. It was all handled in the backer kit of the pledge manager though. Did you ever get an email survey from the backer kit?

https://uboot-the-board-game.backerkit.com

In that survey you should be able to enter your shipping address and i assume pay for the shipping
