Coral Sea Battle, Flat Top Double Blind

Postby Thomas Persson » Thu 26 Oct, 2017 16:00

Hi again,

I've added a Coral Sea Battle to the Calender and was planning to start on the 15/11. Please post a comment if you want to participate. If you want to get a feel for what the game is about, just read the AAR's posted under Flat Top Double Blind. Flat Top is a game of carrier warfare in the Pacific played at operational level. It's done double blind with me as gamemaster.

I was planning to email some maps and briefing notes to the players who wants to be commanders of the USN and IJN so that they can prepare ahead of the first game.

Hoping to find some players

Cheers

Thomas

For some overview of the battle and some inspiration, these USN training films can be watched:

You’re very welcome. I don’t see anything else scheduled for those days. Which side would you prefer IJN or USN? I can send you material before the game so you can prepare an overall strategy. If so, I’ll need an email adress.

Cheers

Thomas

Sorry guys but I got a work thing that I'll have to do on Wednesday. Therefore, no battle on the 15/11.

Sorry about that.
