Looking for a copy of the rules as I've lost mine. No longer in print according to Alnavco, with no plans to re-print in future.

Please contact me at

Scroll to the bottom. I'm not sure everything from the SP realm is listed, but at least some is available to download.

I only found out about this about 2 weeks ago, courtesy of BuckeyeBob, who may know more.

I remember buying this from a guy at Origin '78 through a friend of a friend of a friend. Way before cell phones and such- it was like arranging a ransom drop- took a day and a half to meet up.

Thanks for the tip, KPinder.

De Nada,

Sadly, the website gets you nowhere on those fascinating color faced dice. You can use others, obviously, but it's just not the same.

I have 2 sets, but one is really badly worn. The closest I've ever seen these days is an HMGS east vendor who has, for some years now, had a little bag of 4 factory fresh faces dice and a full set of the 4 Special Damage Dice. I can't quite see what 4 of a 10 set is supposed to get you.

Ah well.

My suggestion on dice for Seapower is to buy blank sided D6 from Amazon and attach stickers of the appropriate type to each side. The BGG site has images of the damage dice so you can determine which letters and colors go where on the die.
I pulled out my copy of SP2 and 3 to take a look at them and see they are copyrighted 1970. They are in pretty good shape and it'd be easy enough to scan them and send them to Alnavco along with all the aircraft charts and naval gunfire etc charts for them to disseminate as a PDF, if they are wanting to do that. I'll see if I can contact them to determine their interest. Meanwhile if anyone has questions on the rules they can contact me at glenmwilli at msn dot com. just put seapower in the subject line.

I just saw on Facebook, Naval Wargaming public group that Sue Paschall asked if anyone is interested in obtaining Seapower 2 and 3 if they were to reprint it.
That was on August 3rd. A number of folks volunteered to provide their scans etc to help in that endeavor should she be interested in them.

So if you think you'd order a reprint it might be good to go to either the Alnavco site or Facebook Naval Wargaming public group and respond.
