Task Forces and Convoys: A Naval Chess Game is dedicated to ...
A. Our Allied - including Grand Alliance Chinese and Russian - including my father Bob Coatney (USAAF CBI) and uncles Homer Coatney (USN CBs) and John Burgett (USN USS Moray SS-300) - servicepeople who defeated Axis aggression in World War 2.
B. My children Rebecca, Robert, Rohan, and Johanna, in the hope that they may never have to go through a world war:

The more we learn about the Second World War, the better our chances that it will be the LAST world war.


A Request: If you do assemble and play this free game of mine, PLEASE let me know at ELCOAT@hotmail.com what you think of it and whether, after more than a couple games, you think one side or the other has an advantage. Thanks!
The games' components - Basic, Classic, and "Historical":

Final draft of ALL the games' rules in Rich Text Format. Rvsd 21May18. The Basic Game's rules - at the start of these - were too short to upload separately. Convoy PQ17 and Nord Kapp (Scharnhorst's sinking) has been added to the Historical game.

The Basic Game Charts:

The Classic Game Chart and Units: The Historical Game with an idea for an Advanced - more than one unit in the same hexagon - Units. Use the large hexagonal board.

More comments by myself and others about the game can be read on Talk Consimworld Com and BoardGameGeek.
