Avalon Hill's War At Sea Player's Guide - The Boardgamer

Watermarked PDF

The publisher of The Boardgamer magazine created five special issues devoted entirely to one game within the Avalon Hill catalog.  They were known as Unofficial Player Guides, but were considered the best collection of new information, variants, scenarios, rules variations, errata, inserts, and new articles written for these games.  Fans loved the materials, because it delivered new life into a game that was forgotten by Avalon Hill, but still cherished by the players.

This player's guide, the first in a series of five, is dedicated to the naval wargame War At Sea.  It is a must have for any fan of the classic game.

In this guide, published in 1999, the articles include:

  • Victory In The Atlantic - Strategic Considerations and a Variety of British Opening Moves
  • Admirals Raedar and Doenitz Would’ve Been Proud - Axis Play In War At Sea
  • Mediterranean Strategies - The Exciting Approach To War At Sea
  • Why I’m A “Barents On One” Believer - Allied Opening Strategy For War At Sea
  • Underwater Strategy - Use of U-Boats In War At Sea
  • Ten Hints Everyone Ought To Know By Now - Quick Tips For War At Sea
  • War At Sea – Beginner’s Tip Sheet - Prepared For Avaloncon ‘97

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
