No idea how well the game system plays, but personally, I'm put off by the cartoony style graphics. But that's just me.

I'm put off that it's yet another WW2 game, it's a card game and the cartoon graphics.

But that's just like, my opinion, man.

I actually don't really like games.

Been in the works for a while. On my must buy list. They did an impressive job with Blue Water Navy.

That would be neat to see. I played the computer version of 5th Fleet back when (the only one they ported over, iirc) and have the dead tree version of 2nd Fleet which I may have gotten from B_C and

have yet  to play.

...or maybe not. Great PC game but how well it'll translate to the table is another thing.
