Battleships Zenith: WW2 Naval Combat w/Computer Assistance
by Steve A. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 03/23/2017 20:01:35

This is an excellent simulation of surface warfare from NWS. The rule system is easy to learn and gives good detail on naval combat without bogging down the players. it also comes with a computer assisted program that can be used for minatures or traditional ship counters. The software offers a variety of options and possible scenarios that can be used by a casual player or more detail oriented player. The NWS staff offer excellent customer service.

MODERN NAVAL CONFLICTS 1970s
by Weihan W. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 02/12/2016 08:25:54

I just purchased the bundle of this game several weeks ago. Although the game looks not good, but I would say it's very worthy to give it a try! The rule is comprehensive and the data sheets cover the 1970s and 1980s. The game looks complex for the first sight, but when you get familiar with the rule, it's not so difficult as you think at the beginning. After all, if you're interested in moder tactical naval warfare but have difficulties to get started with the detailed Harpoon, give it a try! 这套棋很不错,值得一试。细节上有鱼叉的风范,规则考虑的也很周全,各种修正处理的很好。如果你对现代战术级海战兵棋有强烈兴趣,请赶紧入手!

This extra Sheet is the same high quality of the original ship data sheets. The download process is straight forward. It must have been if I could do it.

Dreadnought Rising: WW1 Naval Combat w/Computer Assistance
by Richard H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 01/17/2014 09:39:07

I bought this rule set from Wargamer's vault very much attracted by the Computer Assistance programe that comes bundled with it.

(http://www.wargamevault.com/product/121864/Dreadnought-Rising-WW1-Naval-Combat-w-Computer-Assistance?term=dreadnought+rising)

I am not a mathematically minded sort of person and when i looked at the rules half an hour before we were due to play the game I thought i was going to be in a lot of trouble - this was no Victory at Sea!

Fortunately, one of our members who has an encyclopedic mind for understanding rule sets had trialed a solo game before that night and was prepared.

As it turned out by using the computer Assitance programe this game proved to be very easy and enjoyable. In fact we never looked at the rulebook once all the required data is asked for in the programe. After the first couple of rounds everyone knew what data was required: Bearing, range, target aspect, ships turned or not etc. The data was soon quickly put into the laptop and hey presto - you've hit my battleship! (or not!!). It made for a fast flowing game with players simply concentrating on where to move their ships and what to shoot at.

The programe held up for the entire game (it had crashed once during a trial run - which effectively would end the game). I have created a senario of my own - took 5mins to put the ships into the editor.

We tweeked the measurements for moving and firing and although it may seem unorthodox we decided that for gunnary range 0.5 inch = 1000 yrds = 1DU and for movement 0.5cm = 1knt = 1DU. It worked for us and kept the maths simple.

In conclusion: A straight forward game that anyone who can use a ruler and a 360 deg. protractor (for working out bearing) will be able to play. I suggest that each turn you input the data for the ships in the same order each time (less confusing). My only criticsm is that the Turkish navy is not included but it is the only one that is not, out of the major players.

I hope you this short review will encourage people like me (not very good with complex rules) to think about giving it a punt. I definately think it has lots of solo play potential.

Richard

MODERN NAVAL CONFLICTS 1970s
by John K. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 12/02/2013 00:00:00

I have all the modern naval rules sets extant - and this one looks like it will be my favorite. It has the detail of Harpoon, but the playability of Shipwreck. I hope we'll see additional data and scenarios for current and near future conflicts. In the meantime it looks like a lot of Surface Battle Group info could be adapted.

Indispensable supplement to Modern Naval Battles, especially if you want to do the Falklands.
