So these are a bit of a hot mess but learning a lot about the game Dawn Of The Battleship (by ATG) and what adjustments we need to do in the prototype module for TTS to pull it off properly.

Original playtest: 


Solo playtest Part 1 follow-up:


A friend has started working on some protractor and arc aids specific to this game Dawn Of The Battleship, and those are looking very good (not taped in either of the above but when I do a Part 2 I'll import them in to my solo walk through.

Regards, Peter

The Russo-Japanese war is very interesting and I have read quite a bit about it. One of these days I may even get a copy of 'The Tide at Sunrise' from MMP :-)

Mind you, I think the game is mainly about the siege of Port Arthur and the naval aspect is either abstracted or not covered at all.

I've been tempted to buy Jack Greene's Togo. If any of you have any experience with it, let me know a bit about it.
