Roman Seas: Rulebook Deluxe Edition
Publisher: Hotz Stuff

Very nice components, but the rules are a mess: incomplete, ambiguous, and contradictory. You'll have to make up your own movement rules, as the ones in the rulebook don't actually make sense. There are glaring omissions in other rules as well, and you'll have to make up your own answers as you go along.

The designer does not respond to inquiries, and I found the Yahoo Group less than useful, as I received no response to my request to join.

If you're looking for a good game on ancient naval warfare, I recommend War Galley for fleet-size actions, and the old Avalon Hill Trireme for ship-to-ship action.

Considering the price I paid, I expected a complete game. I didn't get one. Consider yourself warned.

The Danish War

Some clever ideas that add nice historical chrome, but the Father Tilly rules overall are not terribly well written or organized, and I found the many ambiguities and omissions quite annoying, as is the "bucket of dice" combat system. I'm afraid I cannot recommend these rules to anyone interested in musket-and-pike warfare. There are free rules sets available online that are far more complete and well thought out.
