A couple of weeks ago I chatted with the guys from the Man Battlestations site based in the US about Project Jutland and Naval Gaming in general.

It was good fun talking with two guys who are clearly passionate about their Naval Wargaming, if you haven't visited MBS please do, they have a podcast each month as well as a regular blog and forum.

Golf tees, Brilliant! I'll be pinching that idea.

An old one, but a good one.

My old gaming buddies didn't appreciate me bringing neon ones, but I recall there was a battle where colored practice rounds were fired by mistake.

Did some fleets also use dye rounds to differentiate different firing ships?

Yarkshire, so lovely, I could weep!

I have a watercolor of SMS Derfflinger on the wall at home.

It is my understanding that the dye marker splashes did not come into use until WW II. I know the French and Japanese used them but don't know about others.

The golf tees have the name of the firing ship on them to keep track of who hit who, and how many ships are firing at the same ship because of modifiers to the roll required.
