Phalanx has posted a link to preview their upcoming board game UBOOT!
In this game, you play as one of four crew members: Captain, First Officer, Chief Engineer and the Navigator.
You will have to give and take orders to move your crew around the boat, being careful not to overtax them that could possibly lead to morale issues. This appears to be a worker placement/resource management versus a pure combat wargame.
I am very interested in this game after we got a quick peek at it at last year’s UK Games Expo. Besides who doesn’t love the movie, Das Boot! Some other interesting aspects of this game will be an actual submarine game board to move your miniatures around in and an app that you use as your periscope and execute the captain’s orders.
This looks to be a very exciting game and I think it would make an entertaining Let’s Play, hmmm…
It is set to go live January 22nd, why not take a look at the preview page and see for yourself if you have what it takes to be in the Silent Service.
Are you ready to deep six the enemy?
