I refer you to my previous post for the player briefings. As usual both fleets sailed in dangerous clumps until my repeated warnings about collisions and torpedoes eased the ships apart a bit. Above is the French fleet. Scary eh?
The Eyetie battleships looked pretty intimidating!
The Italians opened fire first - and some early hits were scored.
As usual my firing arrows were these conveniently shaped post-it notes.
In the hectic exchange of fire which ensued, Vittorio Veneto suffered a minor hit (seen above) amounting to 1.5% of her total points. The other Italian ships were untouched.
The French turned for home and made smoke (most of it voluntary...). Strasbourg lost 14% and a complete turret (half of her main battery), Dunkerque 11% and La Galissonnier (seen below) 5%.
So - a game which occupied six players for a little over an hour using only seven toys!
