Admiral of the Fleet – Rulebook

Admiral of the Fleet (AotF) is a fast-play system for naval miniatures wargames focusing on medium to large surface fleet actions during the 1880-1945 period.

Looking for a fast-play but realistic tabletop simulation that combines a unique command/signaling system with combat that is as exciting and unpredictable as naval warfare really was? Bored with just moving ships about the table and doing whatever you want, turn after turn, without a mechanism that realistically reflects the difficulties and rewards inherent in commanding a fleet of ships? Then Admiral of the Fleet and its companion publications The Flag Officer's Handbook and AotF Scenarios Volume I may be just what you are looking for.

Due to the popularity of surface-only engagements and the difficulties inherent in an accurate portrayal of the additional dimensions required by the addition of aircraft and submarines to the game table, AotF focuses exclusively on surface warfare during the age of the battleship.

Rulebook: 59 pages of rules, game charts, damage effects chart, printable move/turn rulers, bibliography, and glossary. Contents include:

  1. An Introduction to Signaling
  2. Playing Admiral of the Fleet
  3. Pre-Game Preparation
  4. Command Phase
  5. Movement Phase
  6. Combat Phase (Gunfire)
  7. Combat Phase (Torpedoes)
  8. Damage Phase
  9. Optional Rules and Variants

Required to play AotF.
