Bismarck Solitaire board game is based on the very popular bestselling Bismarck Solitaire Bookgame.
The board game uses the same great game system as the bookgame but has the traditional board game tactile components. It has wooden game pieces to represent the ships and a large doubled sided hard mounted game board for the search board and game actions. One side of the game board is for the Bismarck hunt and the other side is used for the Battle of Denmark Strait.
Another smaller game board is used to track ships status and wooden cubes are used to track ship status and other game functions. Missions and the British actions and events in response to those missions are on individual Mission Charts. A custom easel is included that holds the Mission Chart upright facing the player.
You have 18 missions of varying objectives and difficultly. Each mission can be played multiple times to best the Royal Navy. Some missions require you to find convoys, others expect you to sink a few British warships, while some just hope your ships can survive the sortie.
The game comes with a double sided game board with enhanced graphics. One side of the board is the North Atlantic at a strategic level with its convoys and all the British warships involved in protecting them from the Bismarck. The other side of the game board is of the Denmark Strait where the Bismarck needs to breakout into the Atlantic and British ships are there to stop them before the make the open seas.
