interesting to read the positive comments.
I bought it s/hand (off one of the mods on this forum!) for a good price (although the postage was ultra-ouch), as a present-to-be for my nephew.
Purely on the basisi of the lovely models / presentation.
then discovered that the consensus at the time of release was that it was a poor game and that it sold ... poorly. Or so Says The Internet anyway.
Haven't done anything with it, and my nephew (who hasn't got in the hobby despite [because of?] his dad's gaming) is non-the-wiser ...
should add that the gaming cloth is very good - better than any of the currently available 'ocean' gaming mats I've seen (and bought).
If I hadn't thought of the marvel that is crushed velvet, I'd be using it for my current Ghost Archipelago project.
