Yes! I talked with the Academy Games guys for awhile, and it sounds really compelling. Combined with the overall high quality of the original game components, I'm pretty sold on their stuff. Aging eyes also like the BIG counters!

How is it? So far all I managed to do is get the counters punched and clipped. I really like the map of the Caribbean. I'm hoping it's a good operational system with tactical battle resolution. I wish it included the land combat as well!

I have not actually played it either. It is part of a number of Avalanche Press GWAS/SWWAS games I have. So far I have only ever played a few rounds of Cruiser Warfare and Bismarck. Yet I still keep buying more and more of the series. It's a disease none of the present company could ever understand, I'm sure...  8)

first I'm not the only person running things around here.

second once we get 15 grand in the bank, we will consider doing some upgrades.  Until then, we will continue to be worth every penny you pay us :-)
