GWaS: The Mediterranean (Ultimate Edition)
In one of the First World War’s best-known naval escapades, the German battle cruiser Goeben eluded her British and French pursuers in August 1914, escaping to Turkey and helping to widen the war into entirely new theaters. That would only be the first of many naval operations on the Mediterranean Sea and the adjoining Adriatic and Black Seas with naval action continuing well after the official end of the war.
Mediterranean Ultimate Edition is a completely new edition of our old Great War at Sea: Mediterranean game. It covers all of the naval action in the Mediterranean, not only during the Great War, but also from the wars that preceded it (Balkan Wars, Italo-Turkish War) and followed it (Russian Civil War, Greco-Turkish War).
Mediterranean Ultimate Edition includes 280 “long” playing pieces representing major warships, and 280 square ones representing smaller warships, aircraft and fleets. There are two operational maps, covering the entire Mediterranean Basin from Batum on the eastern end of the Black Sea out past Gibraltar into the Atlantic Ocean on the western edge.
The ships and planes of all the participants are present: Austria-Hungary, Britain, France, Italy, Greece, Ottoman Turkey, Romania, Bulgaria, Germany, Japan, Spain, Imperial Russia, White Russia and Red Russia.
There are over 100 scenarios included, organized in our popular “story arc” format that places them in historical context, with campaign games to tie them together for players wishing a more in-depth experience.
