Growing up, I played a lot of different tabletop games. Recently, I’ve been yearning to get back into that a bit. I’m already planning on getting an AD&D campaign going (yes, I know…I’ve said it a lot) when xanyboi gets back into town, and I’ve been wanting to find other games that my friends and I used to play as well. One of those games was a relatively simple card game called Modern Naval Battles. The premise was pretty simple. You were dealt some ships, and you drew cards that allowed you to blow up the ships of the other people playing. The game has been off the market for years, though, and whenever I’ve found copies of it on eBay it’s been very expensive.
Well I got a bug up my ass to do some searching for it today, and I made a wonderful discovery. It seems as though the rights to the game reverted back to the creator, who made a few updates to it (namely changing the name to Cold War Naval Battles due to the fact that it’s not so “modern” anymore) and put it out on the web for people to download and play for free. All you have to do is print out the cards on card stock, cut them out, and you’re good to go.
Which is going to be quite a daunting task, considering the number of cards that there are in the set.
Hooray, yet again, for the wonder that is the internet.
