I have Shipwreck, and have run games with it at local conventions. It is really excellent and easy to learn.

The yahoo site is good, and as many ships as you can think of are in fact there. I highly recommend it, as well as Freeplay '88 when it arrives here.

I was concerned about the availability of ship data cards for nations other than US/UK/Russia(USSR) and no publisher website as well. I found on BGG that there is a Yahoo group for the ruleset.

There are over 500 members with modest activity (10 posts per month or so.) I joined last night and got accepted this morning. I checked out the file section and found a bonanza of ship cards for ever Asian and European country that I have ships for.

Many are created by group members with group discussion and concensus in creating the stats. There are also player aids, optional rules, QRS and errata there. Also contributions by some naval gaming names I hold in high regard.

Oh yeah these rules have some good comments on tmp too. They say the rules are "simplistic" vs. Harpoon 4, but what rules aren't.

I'm a SBG 3.0 fan and have most of their modules but their website has gone MIA and they don't seem to have any active support groups like SHIPWRECK does....See more

It's been years since I read the rules (borrowed copy from a friend) but as I recall it has vessel classes detailed for US, and Russian fleets as well as some British. There are no TO&Es however it's up to you to research proper fleet lists. The expansion Freeplay 88 covers more ships. And may have TO&Es.

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.
