We all know what a tough ship the Akagi is….its been there taking everything that the TMPers can throw at it, but the time has come to send this menace to the deep.

Inspired by the game of Battleships- here are the rules.

- There is grid of 1-10 on one axis and A-J on the other.
- Only one shot per TMPer
- You choose a grid reference (eg A-5) for your shot
- The next TMPer then decides if its a hit or miss and posts HIT OR MISS

TMPer1: A6
TMPer2: Miss
TMPer3: B6
TMPer4: Hit!

- Being a tough and agile ship the Akagi will need 7 Hits to sink her.

Good Hunting!

Agaki? Sorry, if you had said Akagi I might have played. I only do historicals.

Nuke Hit=7 Hits, game over man!

GoodBye Inactive Member01 Apr 2009 2:26 p.m. PST

Oh wait that was on the sub board, I don't think Akagi is on that one!

MISS, don't you know the Editor intervenes on its behalf?

Ivan DBA01 Apr 2009 2:36 p.m. PST

Radar reports that she's taking evasive action…..

I say we nuke it from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

What?! You knew somebody was going to say it.

Miss. (Dude!!)

I'd rather be playing Never Get Started Sink the Akagi. Oh, wait, I am.

Which reminds me, for those in the know … you just lost The Game.

B4 we get to carried away with this game – shouldn't there be some thought on what happens when we finally get sufficient hits to sink it? Perhaps someone here needs to commission Mal Wright to paint another picture so we can have it for another year or so?

Jovian1 Inactive Member01 Apr 2009 3:57 p.m. PST

Oh – and @ kyoteblue = HIT!

All your base are belong to us.

What about the Akagi air group? Probably up to no good.

Mike G Inactive Member01 Apr 2009 4:18 p.m. PST

G 20 oops, that should be over at the Blue Fez.

Mikhail Lerementov Inactive Member01 Apr 2009 4:19 p.m. PST

IT'S AGAKI! Not the AKAGI! Sheesh. What are our schools teaching these days. Makes it a totally fantasy game. Told you I only do historicals. Much more, well, historical.

Phillipaj Inactive Member01 Apr 2009 4:24 p.m. PST

Mikhail- spoken like a true TMPer! I salute your devotion to historical veracity.

you see the Agaki/Akagi was using counter measures and had faked her markings…. how do think she's lasted this long…?

J10 (nobody ever thinks to shoot the corners!)

Sorry unrepentent and badger, but due to the global financial situation squares H5 and F6 have been closed.The Akagi might be there but she is no longer owned by Jap Navy (inc). Please accept this refund and have another try.

Mikhail Lerementov Inactive Member02 Apr 2009 4:26 a.m. PST

Kyoteblue, that would be a Paj carrier at Dimway. You're in a fantasy world where your after the Agaki! Might not be a carrier but a space going battleship.

I tried this last month. It is unsinkable.

Be an anarchist, shoot at G-20!

That's Five Hits so far- lads well done!

She's leaning but still under power, looks like her rudders damaged and she's going in circles to port!

Only two more hits and she's a goner…..

7 Hits to sink her!

I think Phil is cheating……

Phillipaj Inactive Member03 Apr 2009 9:34 p.m. PST

I so am not = It's the fog of war….

but she's definitely going down… who will get the final shot in and undying TMP fame?
