"Come on you chaps, who's coming for a swim?"

— P.O. Ernest Francis, HMS Queen Mary

Grand Fleets™ is a miniatures game of naval warfare during the age of the battleship. From the ironclads of the late 1800s to the super-dreadnoughts of World War II, players can take command of the ships that altered the course of history.

Great pains have been taken to accommodate a wide range of preferences: hexes or no hexes; any miniatures scale; simultaneous or sequential play — the choices are up to you!

In addition to the basic rules for surface actions between 1890 and 1940, Grand Fleetsincludes advanced rules for things like time of day, smokescreens, crew quality, and destroyer flotillas. Best of all, you'll never have to wait for "official" publication of your favorite ships: comprehensive, step-by-step guidelines are provided to generate data cards for any vessel that put to sea during the battleship era.

So, raise the battle ensign, sound general quarters, and damn the torpedoes — your destiny awaits!

Also, check out the King & Kaiser scenario book.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
