Don't forget, next weekend is International Naval Wargaming Day. Sunday August 6th is the day when naval wargamers all around the world celebrate the birth of naval wargaming and that of Fred T Jane. So get yourself a game organised, solo or with friends and let the world know on Facebook, blogs and wargaming sites what you got up to :)

Cool! I shall encourage our Commodores to plan something. Thanks for the signal.

Does starship gaming count?

Oops – I seem to have inadvertently celebrated it a couple of weeks early!


Bloody Big BATTLES!

Is this really a thing? : )

no matter, gave me a good excuse to schedule a game.

it should of been Form line of battle, to honor Mr. Manley who brought this holiday to my attention, but I'm still digesting those rules… so went with another less complex one.

Ran Fury on the Lakes scenario Saturday. Oswego Lock game. Night. Canadian Monitors got 4 of 5 Five-Inch shore battery guns, but could not get a block ship into mouth of Canal. Many lessons learned.

In honor of the day I hosted my first AoS game at my place.

Used to rules KMH. thoughts about the rules and getting into AoS can be seen on the Blog.

International Naval Wargames day spurred me to finish the 2nd edition rules for Captaincy. We playtested new concepts on Sunday.

So far the revision streamlines play a bit and improves the scenario generator. As usual, any updated files will go out gratis to people who bought a pdf from Wargames Vault.

I don't have a web picture to share; maybe later.

Congratulations to David Manley for prompting many naval wargames on Sunday!

That's good to know Captain, as I am included in that bunch.

Hello David, I was reading your INWD blog and was very interested in the Russo-Japanese AAR.There seemed to be plenty of flavour with command & control issues, maneouvring, fire affects, etc. Are these published rules?
