Description

BATTLE OF THE RIVER PLATE is Vol. 8 of Minden's BATTLEGAME book series. It is a tactical level (individual ships) level simulation, containing the rules and components simulating the historic Battle of the River Plate fought in December, 1939, between the German pocket battleship Graf Spee, and three Royal Navy cruisers. This is a stand-alone game; all rules, game tables, and scenarios needed are provided. Scale warship counters (authentically rated in various categories for firepower, armor, and speed) are provided within the pages of the book; these may be scanned and printed, or you may use your own scale model naval miniatures. This is an introductory-level game, using the Battleship Captain 3rd ed. rules system, designed to focus on playability and historicity. In addition to the warships involved at the River Plate, 16 other full-rated ship counters are provided from Germany, Britain, and France--including Bismarck, Hood, Dunkerque, Prince of Wales, Prinz Eugen--so you may create additional scenarios.
