This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a non-historical Pacific naval battle using the General Quarters 3rd Edition rules. Not many players turned up, but we took the opportunity to learn a new set of rules and discuss naval topics. In the absence of miniatures, ship counters were borrowed from a board game.
Two IJN DDs were sunk and several ships on each side were damaged. Due to time constraints we did not play to a conclusion. GQ3 seems to be a quick game system suitable for club games as long as you can keep the naval buffs from arguing about the abstractions. Good luck with that.
