Labor Day 2015
Several times a year, when we feel like it, the Golden Journal brings Gold Club members a set of extras for their Avalanche Press games. Our twelfth issue has its focus on naval games, with some other stuff, too.
This Journal's a little different: it's based on a die-cut sheet of pieces we did for the Gold Club in its earliest days, before we had print-on-demand capability. It has 70 of the one-inch-long pieces we typically use for the naval game series. Just
over half of them (36) are the U.S.
Navy “four stack” destroyers from Strike
Fleet and Bismarck, plus the out-of-print Leyte Gulf and Midway (they were still in print when we made the pieces).
It’s a nice addition to each game —
while these were older vessels, in most of
those games (the first three anyway) they
were still used as fleet destroyers and it
would have been nice to give them big counters
all along. Now you have them.
has the eight destroyers of the Freccia class, which appeared in the out-of-print Bomb Alley on “small” pieces and the Italian Affondatore,
Content piece on Vittorio Cuniberti’s
battleship design. She's since appeared in Triple Alliance along with three sisters.
William Sariego’s fine tandem of pieces
on the French submarine Surcouf, we
have the big white elephant in both Second
World War at Sea and Great
War at Sea formats, so she can be
used with Bismarck or U.S. Navy
Much like the Freccia class, several
British A-class destroyers have been given
short shrift in some games. These
particular victims suffered in Eastern
Fleet and Bomb Alley. Japanese
destroyers got the same treatment —
most of these are older ones from Strike
South and Eastern Fleet, from the Kamikaze class plus class
members that appeared in Leyte Gulf,
even though they had been reduced to escort
roles by then. Two seaplane carriers that
were disrespected in Midway get full-sized
