A few weeks ago, I was introduced to a free PNP game, called Unterseeboot. I found the files on BoardGameGeek and played a few games. As a long-time game designer and historian, I was immediately impressed with how the author blended speed-play, historical feel, and game mechanics to deliver a fun immersive game. I was also keenly aware of how the world needs good PNP games right now that you can play solitaire.
So I reached out to the original author, Etienne, and asked if he would like to collaborate on updating the visuals and putting together a new edition of his free PNP game. He was keen and soon we were off to the races!
After a few weeks of editing, adjusting things here and there, and working with graphic elements, we're pleased to finally announce that we think it's done and ready for you all to have a look! The new files will soon be available on BGG, hopefully, but in the meantime, you can find them here:
We could really use your help playing the game a bit and if you have any feedback, please, please, please don't hesitate to post questions here or email me. I'd like to say thank you to the hobby groups for the supportive comments along the way and to Etienne Michot for being really amazing and kind to work with.
Thank you all, and good luck on your patrols!
