Life on a submarine is rough. It’s claustrophobic and you’re fighting enemies that you really can’t see (and hopefully can’t see/detect you). And it’s not like you can just jump overboard if there’s a hole in the ship. This cramped, tense feeling is just what Phalanx is looking to bring to your tabletops with their UBOOT board game. They’re going to be running a Kickstarter to fund it, and they’re letting people get an early look at how the page will be.
From the campaign:
UBOOT The Board Game is a real-time tabletop game of WW2 submarine warfare. An underwater cooperative war thriller that allows 1 to 4 players to assume the roles of the Captain, the First Officer, the Navigator, and the Chief Engineer on board of a type VIIC U-boat. The game is enhanced by a companion app, allowing for an unprecedented level of realism, as well as a challenging enemy A.I. which will push your skills to the limit. The action unfolds both on the strategic and the tactical scale, always demanding teamwork, efficient crew management, and quick situation assessment.
