Victory at Sea - Age of Dreadnoughts

Watermarked PDF

"Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts is a game of naval combat during the First World War. Now you can play out these confrontations on the tabletop with entire fleets drawn from the Royal Navy’s Grand Fleet, the Kaiserliche Marine’s Hochseeflotte or any one of the many other nations featured in Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts. From skirmishes involving single cruisers hunting down merchantmen and surface raiders to the clashing of fleets, Victory at Sea: Age of Dreadnoughts is your gateway to exciting battles that took place on the oceans during the Great War."

"Age of Dreadnoughts" is the WW1 adaptation of Mongoose's "Victory at Sea" (1st edition), published in 2009. In recent years the book and its PDF have been OOP. As a result of recent interest from a number of players in obtaining the rules I have been given permission by Matt at MGP to make the PDF rulebook available again here. 

NOTE: The PDF, for reasons unknown, is missing a number of "l" and "i" charachters, and isn't editable to reinstate them.

The supplement, "Far Flung Seas" is also available in PDF from MGP on Wargame Vault:

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.
