Dogger Bank scenario from AH's Jutland

This game is old (c1968)and requires a lot of space (more floor game than table to game).  We gave the Dogger Bank scenario a test run on the table.

I took His Majesty's forces while Richard took the Kaiser's.

We didn't get the initial reaction to torpedo attack quiet right.

After this we battered away.  The Germans lost two ships and their supporting destroyers and light cruisers, while the British lost three ships with significant damage on their remaining ships.

The thing that I found interesting is that my favourite Dreadnought game from SPI is just like this game adapted for hexes.  The actual Jutland game has a lot more going for it it in terms of searching out the enemy fleet.  You just need time.
