I'm back at work on Saturday, but so far I'm just (more or less) doing my normal hours. The work itself will be a little different, but the shifts so far are normal.

I know Tombwalker and Co are  interested.

The only issue I have is I am still working (considered a key worker) and my shifts could change at short notice.

Good tip.

So, questions:

Are we using Roll20? Poll is as yet inconclusive.
Are we doing it this Saturday  or another time? If so, usual time?
Who is DM-ing?

The Allies would soon find themselves scrambling and suffering horrific losses at sea at the hands of these silent hunters.In early 1943, the Allies would not only stem the tide, but turn it in dramatic fashion, thanks to counter measures taken which included convoy tactics, high frequency direction finding ("huff-duff"), radar, active sonar and more. Suddenly, the U-Boat fleet was being decimated, as the Hunter became the Hunted and the Allies gained air superiority above the seas. German U-Boat losses alone tell the story. Through 1941, only 66 U-Boats were lost. During 1942, another 96 U-Boats would be lost. And then, in 1943, no less than 237 U-Boats were sunk or scuttled at sea.The time is 1256 hours, 3 September 1939You are now the Hunter - but also the Hunted. Will you successfully carry out your patrols, advance your crew status, and ultimately be promoted and retire following a successful tour of duty? Or, like so many amongst you, will your final fate rest inside the Iron Coffin?The GameThe Hunters, German U-Boats at War, 1939-43 is a solitaire, tactical level game placing you in command of a German U-Boat during WWII. Your mission is to destroy as much Allied shipping and as many Capital ships as possible, while advancing your crew quality and increasing your commander rank culminating in special decoration - all while attempting to make it home amidst diminishing odds of survival as the war progresses. The Hunters is purposely designed to deliver a brisk yet intensive gaming experience. Those familiar with the venerable 1981 Avalon Hill game title, B-17: Queen of the Skies, will come to enjoy the same type of gaming experience of the German U-Boat War: All major U-Boat models are accounted for with every level of detail including period of service, armaments, crew make-up damage capacity, and more. Conducting patrols is the heart of the system as you resolve encounters against individual ships, convoys, or even enemy aircraft. Situations you face and decisions you make suddenly come in quick succession:How will you engage a convoy once spotted?Do you close the initial target range at increased risk of detection for a more lethal attack?If Your engagement is at night, will you conduct a surface attack?Will you try to follow a convoy or ship to engage in additional rounds of combat?What evasive manoeuvres do you undertake?Every decision you make during the German U-Boat War determines if you and your crew come home as heroes, failures - or not at all.Contents:One 1/2 inch full colour, 2-sided counter sheet (140 counters)Rules booklet with Designer NotesFour Player Aid Cards, 2-sidedU-Boat Patrol Log SheetFour U-Boat Display Mats, 2-sidedU-Boat Combat MatThree 6-sided and two 10-sided diceOne d20 dieEight Kommandant cards (new for 3rd Printing).Two Patrol maps (new for 3rd Printing)

The Hunted: Twilight of the U-Boats 1943-45

The Hunted12 German U-Boat types represented12 Patrol Assignments including anti-invasion patrol300 named shipping targets, including 20 Capital shipsSpecial missions for Abwehr Agent Delivery, Supply Delivery, Replenish, and MinelayingCombat encounters with individual ships, ships with escort, convoys, enemy submarines, and aircraftDaytime and Night Engagement including Wolfpack patrolsU-Boat Damage includes flooding, hull, torpedo doors, periscope, fuel tanks, crew injury (by crew type), engines, hydrophones, flak gun(s), deck gun, batteries, radioCrew Advancement, Commander Promotion including decorations up to The Knight's Cross and new awards including the Wound Badge, U-Boat Front Clasp, German Cross in Gold, and U-Boat War BadgeMulti-player and Tournament Rule options (including Wolfpack Tournament)Manoeuvres, Patrol Abort, Variable Escort Quality, Resupply at Sea, Gibraltar Passage, Reassignment to Newer U-Boat, Torpedo Duds, BOLD decoys, "Alberich" Anti-sonar coating, Schnorkel, NAXOS radar detector, Random Historical Events, and much more!The SituationThe Hunted is a solitaire tactical level game placing you in command of a German U-Boat during WWII. This is the long-anticipated companion game to the award-winning, multiple-print edition release The Hunters, and picks up the action where The Hunters left off. You command one of many U-Boat models available starting in 1943 and look to successfully complete U-boat operations until the end of the war. Fans of The Hunters will enjoy having the capability to easily combine both games to span all of WWII and experience the career of a U-boat commander from 1939 until 1945.While your mission is to destroy as much Allied shipping and as many Capital ships as possible, players will find it extremely challenging to "go the distance" and survive the entire war. The second half of the war has not been sugar coated; the brutal aspects facing U-boat commanders in the final phases of the war make surviving your attack difficult at best. True to history, your challenge is to achieve what only a few could achieve - to make it to the conclusion, as happened historically.As U-Boat commander, you will be confronting may decisions during your patrol. To begin with, eleven German U-Boat models are profiled and available for you to choose from. Patrol zones reflect the period during the war at sea and will shift as the war progresses. All stages of the U-boat campaign are represented; missions become increasingly more difficult as your adversary makes advances in anti-submarine warfare.Conducting patrols are the heart of the system as you will Be resolving encounters against individual ships, convoys, enemy submarines, and aircraft. Situations you face and Decision you make suddenly come in quick succession:The GameThe major German U-Boat models, twelve in all, are represented and accurately profiled for the patrols you will undertake during the latter stages of the war:Patrol Assignments include:ArcticAtlanticAustraliaBrazilian CoastBritish IslesCaribbeanIndian OceanInvasion (Atlantic)MediterraneanNorth AmericaNorwayWest African CoastThe game delivers a historical narrative as 300+ ship targets are uniquely identified (including tonnage) with their historical counterparts that were sunk during the war, including freighters, tankers, and American ships.German technological advances abound in the second half of the war. Decoys, Schnorkels, homing torpedoes, FaT ladder search pattern torpedoes, and the Type XXI "Electroboot" have all given hope to the U-Boat crews. But balanced against these are Allied ASW advances - Hedgehog, Squid, Fido, and an ever-increasing air presence.You were The Hunter, but now you are The Hunted. Can you bring your boat home in an environment where every decision may be your last?Contents:Two full-colour counter sheets (174 x 1/2-inch counters and 48 x 1/4-inch wide counters)One Rules Booklet with Designer's NotesFive Player Aid Cards, 2-sidedOne Patrol Log Sheet pad, 2-sidedSeven U-boat Display Mats, 2-sidedThree Patrol mapsEight Kommandant cardsOne U-Boat Combat MatThree 6-sided, one 20-sided, and two 10-sided dice
