A quick history lesson
Before I played By Stealth and Sea,...

I have a lifelong fascination with submarines. I don’t know where it came from, or why it persists, but something about underwater warfare just does it for me. With my recent foray into wargames, it seemed like the perfect time to take the plunge, if you’ll pardon the pun. By Stealth and Sea is a game set in WWII by publisher DVG, and the design partnership of Nicola Saggini and the prolific David Thompson (Undaunted series, Castle ItterPavlov’s House). The box says 1-3 players, but make no mistake, this is a solo game. It’s not the submarine game I was after, but oh boy, is it exciting.

Damn, sounds very interesting. Price is a bit steep, how is the production value? DVG games are usually pretty well made.

You mention some cumberson set-up, but how is the actual game play? Fast and quick or is it a spreadsheet game?

I see that there is a companion book about that unit and designer note. Looks like a lot of effort went into the game.

The production is really nice, and there are multiple boards in the box representing different harbours.

The setup is only a slog if you match all the exact ships up for the sake of authenticity. It's only really the values printed on them that matter. But the game plays along nice and smooth.

Your actions are very easy to do, just choose which you want to attempt. Then the enemy actions are mostly roll a dice for direction for any random movement, attack if they can, etc etc. It's not difficult at all.
