Great War at Sea:
Prizes of War
Different courses of the Great War might well have seen warships of the Marine Nationale or Imperial Russian Navy serving under British or German colors: taken as booty by a victorious Germany (the actual fate of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet), seized by Britain to prevent their falling into enemy hands following the defeat of an ally, sold in the face of more pressing priorities on land or a different ending to hostilities. Transferred to the North Sea arena across which the war’s two principal naval antagonists faced each other, the more modern of these ships could well have played critical roles in determining whether Britannia or Germania would ultimately hold Neptune’s Trident.
Prizes of War is a supplement for the Great War at Sea series that allows players to examine this question of alternate history. French and Russian ships from our Jutland and Mediterranean games are allocated to the Royal Navy and Kaiserliche Marine, and included in a series of 10 battle and 11 operational scenarios set in and around the North Sea.
Prizes of War includes 80 silky-smooth, die-cut-and-mounted playing pieces. Playing all the scenarios in this supplement requires the included pieces plus maps and pieces from our Jutland game (and no others!).
