Paul Rohrbaugh / High-Flying Dice have announced Gauntlet about a relief convoy to Malta

Quote
Gauntlet run!


Gauntlet is a two player game on the epic naval and air battles for the largest Malta relief convoy of World War II (although solitaire play is easy to do). In August the Malta garrison was on the ropes, with critical supplies nearly exhausted. Allied forces were in full retreat towards Egypt following their defeat in the Gazala Campaign. The Axis forces realized the Pedestal Convoy could very well be the battle for "all the marbles" and mobilized tremendous air, submarine and surface fleet assets to contest its passage. The Allied convoy was savaged but enough ships made it through, including the tanker Ohio whose ordeal was a true epic of wartime heroism, to enable Malta to hold out.

Can you do better? Each copy of Gauntlet is composed of the following:

One 11 by 17 inch point-to-point map

One 11 by 17 inch convoy battle board/PAC where air and surface battles are resolved.

One sheet of 140 un-mounted, double sided counters. Pieces are 1/2 inch by one inch for the naval units and 1/2 inch square for air units and game markers.

8 pages of rules and charts

Graphics are by Bruce Yearian. Gauntlet is released sells for $14.95 plus shipping. Mounted counters can be had for an additional $5.00.

Until the website and order form are updated please contact me directly to order your copy of Gauntlet. Let the dice fly high!

It just occurred to me that I'm reading all your posts in an American accent.

Hmmm.

Perhaps you could try using spelling more phonetically reflective of your actual pronunciation?
