    Description

    “It is summer in the North Atlantic, 1942. Admiral Dönitz’s German U-boats are prowling the east coast of North America and the mid Atlantic shipping lanes, inflicting heavy losses on the Allied merchant fleet carrying desperately need supplies to Europe.”

    “Each Convoy player has at least one US or British destroyer and two merchants in their charge. On the base of the ship is space for a name, a box for a letter to further identify which destroyers/merchants are under the same player control, hit counters and relevant info about movement and attack.”

    “Each German U-boat player controls at least one U-boat and three ‘Ocean cards.’ U-boats are represented by cards with a U-boat number, hit counters and other info on one side and a blank ‘empty ocean’ on the other. When submerged, the U-boat card is turned over with the blank side up. When on the surface, the card is turned with the U-boat side up. Ocean cards have a number and space for a letter on one side, and empty ocean on the other . . . They are used to introduce uncertainty as to the whereabouts of the submerged U-boats on the playing table.”

    “Objective: The Allies must get their merchant ships past the waiting German U-boat wolf packs and safely deliver their cargo to England.”

    “The Allies win if they are able to get 50% of the merchant ships safely through the wolf pack and on to England; otherwise the victory goes to Germany and the U-boats. A merchant is considered to have reach port once its front edge touches the far edge of the playing table or crosses a similar agreed upon line.”
