Great War at Sea: Jutland
The Battle of Jutland was just one part of the ongoing four-year struggle to control the seas around Germany?s coasts. If the German High Seas Fleet could catch and destroy a portion of the much larger British Grand Fleet, the blockade suffocating Imperial Germany might finally be broken.
Jutland includes not only the namesake battle but those of Dogger Bank, the Scarborough and Lowestoft raids, and more. Naval action in the Baltic Sea is also included, such as the battle of Moon Sound. Command the fleets of Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, the United States, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, Finland, and Russia and try not to "lose the war in a single afternoon."
Players plot the movement of their fleets in advance. When opposing forces meet, play moves to the tactical map to resolve combat. Fifty scenarios recreate the historical actions as well as well as those that might have taken place in the North and Baltic Seas between 1914 and 1919. (from the back of the box)
