Right. I've got it in my head that I would like a naval game. Preferably with carriers. Doesn't really matter if it's WWII or modern.

You all know the score. Chits. Decent graphical chits and maps (so kinda modern). Solo.

Thanks

First thing I thought of was Fleet Commander Nimitz from DVG but it';s out of stock right now. You might be able to find it at a reseller. There's a VASSAL mod that DVG sells also, which I think is stand-alone (no physical copy needed). B_C has played it and done an AAR, IIRC.

I’m really enjoying Coral Sea from Avalanche Press.  Carrier combat is fun and I like the fact that your spotter planes can send back incorrect sighting reports.  Solo rules available on BGG.

I also really like Fires of Midway.  Lighter card driven game but surprisingly good.  It’s got solo rules.

Thanks Stagger and SDR. I should've mentioned I have FC:N...haven't played it in a long time. The counter count is just phenomenal and I can't play it with my current setup.

I'll give Coral Sea a look.

I didn't know Coral Sea had solo rules. I have the game myself. I'll have to track those rules down.

They’re pretty basic (almost random) and could do with some tweaking but they’re serviceable.
