Bag the Hun Convoy Game Playtest

The playtest of the convoy game went really well this evening and was very useful in ironing out a few wrinkles in the scenario, especially with the exact combination and number of cards. I managed to cover most of the angles in the scenario briefings but there were a couple of holes which I can now fill up.

In the end, it was a minor Italian victory with only the Priaruggia suffering damage, in the form of some engine room hits and flak suppression. However, no aircraft were shot down by the Italian flak, although a couple were forced to jettison their bombs and take evasive action. A bit like the historical outcome, which is a good sign.

I'll make a few changes to the scenario set up and a couple of helpful instructions to clarify some of the card deck make up but, otherwise, it's a pretty solid scenario as it is. As always, many thanks to Paul, Colin and Gary for their helpful suggestions and for their enthusiasm. I enjoyed the game too, so will definitely be writing some more anti-shipping scenarios in the future.


  1. I like those ship counters. They are hand drawn by the looks of it?


  2. They're pinched from an old game called U Boat...then coloured in.
