Daylight Savings 2017
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 20th (!) issue brings the Finnish Navy’s ultimate building plan to your game table by way of Second World War at Sea: Sea of Iron, with 20 new ship pieces.
The Finns relied on large-caliber coast-defense guns to protect their long, rocky coastline with its countless small islands and skerries: over 1,200 kilometers’ worth. To support the powerful but immobile big guns, Finnish strategy called for small, armored coast-defense ships that could slip between the islands and torpedo-armed ships to dart out and sink attacking enemy warships.
That never came to pass: the Finns built two top-heavy armored gunboats which they called “battleships,” but never funded the third member of the class. A handful of motor torpedo boats would be fielded during the Second World War, but plans to build or buy a group of six small destroyers repeatedly failed to win Parliamentary approval.
The Daylight Savings 2017 Golden Journal comes with 20 new laser-cut and mounted playing pieces representing these new ships, plus a couple of new Sea of Iron scenarios for their use. We’re only printing a small number of these this time and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever - we don’t want to keep Journals in stock long-term.
