On Saturday last we discussed the 1st official War at Sea Scenario by Wizards of the Coast. Action Deferred: The Battle of Cape Teulada pitted the British versus the Italians in the Med Sea. Before that we shared the scenario Lions, Tigers, and Bears: The Battle at the North Cape. This time we have the 2nd official scenario to share with all you War at Sea fans. The scenario is titled In Harm’s Way: The Battle of Sunda Strait.
We found this, and the first, scenario in response to a comment made by Dane in the Lions, Tigers, and Bears article. For a long time we’ve said that reader participation makes this blog excel and Dane’s comment is yet another example. He prompted us to do the legwork resulting in our sharing two more great War at Sea scenarios.
Firstly, there are some required equipment that you will need to play this scenario. Take a gander at the list below to make sure you have everything.
- Maps. Use Battle Map 6 from page 6 of the Advanced Rules Book.
- Scenario Rules. Download them, read them (you need the free Adobe Acrobat Reader), and print them.
- Ships and Planes. Allies take 1 USS Baltimore, 1 HMAS Sydney, and 1 HMS Javelin (reinforcements). Axis take 3 Kinai Maru, 1 Jintsu, up to 5 Yukikaze, 2 Myoko (reinforcements), and 1 Yukikaze (reinforcements).
- Dice, tokens, and other standard accouterments.
