Dive, Dive, Dive - An Update On Phalanx's UBoot!

13 Comments

We stopped off with the folks from PHALANX to talk to them about UBoot which is still running as a BIG hit here at Essen SPIEL ’18 and around the world with tabletop gamers at events like this.

This game is massive and we can’t wait to try it out again when we get back to the studio. Is this a game that has popped up on your radar yet or is this the first time you’re seeing it?

You can also check out our Let’s Play of the game HERE.

by the way me grandfathers brother was german u-boot soldier in WWII – he is MIA since 1945 in the age of 18…somewhere on the ground of the northsea

I do find the subject matter distasteful. Uboots slaughtered civilian ships during World War Two.

it is all about war – isn`t it
intersting point – you have to follow the discussion on the kickstarter campaing

There is a difference between military and civilian targets.

Yes, the ships were carrying supplies to aid the allied war effort, but the crews were civilian.

I suppose it depends which side of the war your ancestors were on. I’d find it less objectionable if it was just sinking warships.

yes you are right – by the way – the biggest civilian ship target in WWII was the german WILHELM GUSTLOFF – sunk on 30.01.1945 after a hit from a russian S13 class u-boot with more than 9000 – nine thousand – german refugee people

I really undertand what you mean and i would have had a problem, when the publisher of this game would be a german company – but these are polish guys..

so in the end everybody had to make his one decision

But this is far away history and let us hope together, that those things will never happen again.

this a very immersive game, it keeps getting bigger, and there was I thinking that a deck rating was all that was needed to master the game.

Such an interesting game this, I recently tried Captain Sonar and while that is fun it is built around easvesdropping on the other team which I think is problematic if one team is not sticking to the rules of confirming orders. This game doesn’t have that issue which is cool.
