Advanced Salvo! European Theater

Watermarked PDF

Advanced Salvo! European Theater is a solitaire, tactical naval strategy wargame that enables players to recreate World War II naval battles between individual allied and axis warships on the table top. 

The design uses the Salvo! game system, adapted to a WW2 setting. (Great War Salvo! 3rd ed. is its World War I counterpart.)

The game consists a 20-page rule booklet, containing all rules, game tables, advanced rules and options, historical scenarios, and designer's notes.  Game components make up the rest of the package, with Scenario Cards, Reference Card, Sea Display, and eight warship counter sheets (sections #1-8), including ships from Great Britain, Germany, France, and Italy, 144 ship counters in all, drawn to scale. Using historically rated warships (BB, BC, PB, CA, CL, AMC types), rated in a variety of offensive and defensive categories, players can assess at a glance the relative strengths and weaknesses of each ship.

Advanced Salvo! European Theater is primarily a ship vs ship solitaire game, but rules are included for two-players as well, with one or multiple ships on a side.  All the major warships from each country are provided (see list below), allowing players to recreate any number of actual and hypothetical Second World War encounters.

The game may be played with the supplied counters, or your own ship miniatures.  The game is adaptable to miniatures play on the table top, with scales of one turn equaling several minutes of real time, and each range band representing approximately 5000 yards (2.5 nautical miles).

Originally published in 2015, Advanced Salvo! European Theater is now available in PDF format.  Designed by Gary Graber.  Published by Minden Games.

Is there any timeframe on a Pacific version of this fine game. I want to refight the Battle of the Kormadoski Islands, and the night fight at Guadalcanal featuring the USS Washington and the Kirishima.

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.
