Remember the Maine
The Spanish-American Naval War of 1898
When the American battleship Maine exploded in Havana's harbor, U.S. president William McKinley demanded that Spain withdraw from Cuba and ordered the U.S. Navy to blockade the Caribbean island. Spain declared war two days later, sending an ill-equipped fleet to the Caribbean to back up its four-centuries-old claim.
The fighting lasted less than four months, with Spain suffering a smashing defeat. It would take three-quarters of a century for Spanish democracy and constitutionalism to recover from the "Disaster of '98." The United States, meanwhile, had entered the world stage as a Great Power, completely changing the outlook of Americans both at home and abroad.
Remember the Maine is a complete game in the Great War at Sea game series, based on the Spanish-American naval war in the Caribbean Sea. There are 45 (yes, forty-five!) scenarios covering all the battles and operations that took place, and many that could have taken place. There are also battle scenarios for the actions in the Philippines. Everything you need to play, except dice, is right there in the package: a 34x22-inch map of the central Caribbean basin, a 24 x 24-inch tactical map, 100 "long" double-sized ship pieces and 80 standard-sized pieces, all of them die-cut and silky-smooth.
For a limited time only, Gold Club members can get an upgrade set with rules and scenarios for the second edition.
