Its the 456th anniversary of the battle of Fukuda Bay, the first engagement between European and Japanese warships fought this day in 1565, so I decided to celebrate with a free scenario download on Wargame Vault for my "At The Height of Battle" rules. Its a fun battle – two Portuguese round ships versus a horde of small Seki Bune and Kobana, fought on a small table over a limited number of turns.

You can find it here is you are interested :)

Thank you Sir, looks incredibly interesting. I was going to try and play some exotic matchups like this with Cannon, Cross and Crescent. In one of my naval warfare books, I remember seeing maps of a showdown between scores of Asian dhows versus some Portuguese round boats. Will download this scenario and add it to the list of battles I need to game.
