Default I'm amazed

I'm amazed that this game has not seen (yet) the recognition it deserves. Of course, it hasn't shipped yet - but it is not invisible.

It is the first Kickstarter game to be fully funded in 45 minutes! It went on to meet ALL of its stretch goals - funded to over 600,000 British pounds.

It is a 1-4 player board game with an app to provide missions, visuals from the periscope and binoculars, random events, signals, and guidance.

There is role-play as captain, first officer, navigator, and chief engineer. Each role controls 8 crew in two watches.

It will be available in December according to the producers (Playway)

It is really worth a look: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...me/description

I've been following it on and off, looks really good.

Wonder if a port to Tabletop Simulator will be made.

The whole idea of an app driven board game is interesting. We have a "haunted house" type board game that uses an app. Works out well.

Hi there!

I'm glad you like the idea behind the game It is almost ready and will be releasing either late December or early January. Here's a link to the most recent update on the project:

https://uboot-the-board-game.backerk...vvPpIs#updates

We hope this game will appeal to subsim fans, as it is a completely new take on the subject, albeit with some traditional subsim components. I guess it is safe to say that it is the first board game ever to deliver a near-Das Boot experience on the tabletop. It is not meant to rival Silent Hunter - that is nigh impossible for a board game, but because gameplay is so co-op oriented and it actually requires a lot of knowledge and skill to play, then I guess this has a chance of bringing subsim fans together at the table.

I mean, why play alone if you can do so with your friends?
