  1. Hi, did you know that Edith Cowan University here in Western Australia have a project to develop a computer game about AE2? Here is a link to a news item: http://article.wn.com/view/2013/04/24/Submarine_game_recreates_ANZAC_legend_Edith_Cowan_University/#/related_news

    All the best,

  2. Thanks for that Bob, I'll give it a good read over the next few days (and probably in true gamer fashion play it albeit in a different format).

    May I also take this opportunity to wish you and your family Merry Christmas?

    Cheers,

    Pete.

  4. Pete,

    I would be interested to hear how you get on with the game ... and how you adapt it.

    A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you and your family.

    All the best,

    Bob

  5. Bob,

    I noticed this game a couple of years ago in the old Wargames World magazine. It has been on my list of "must run this sometime for the guys" games ever since.

  6. Phil Dutré,

    I hope that you enjoy trying it out with your friends.

    What catches most players out is the different water currents at different depths (due to differing salinity levels in the Black Sea and Mediterranean) in the Dardanelles.

    All the best,

    Bob

  8. Peter Douglas,

    Thanks for the feedback. I am very pleased that your group enjoyed the game. Considering how long ago I wrote the rules, they seem to have stood the test of time remarkably well.

    All the best,

    Bob
