Seekrieg – First Battle of Guadalcanal

This weekend the local HMGS-South group played a WWII naval game using the Seekrieg 5 rules. The scenario was based on the First Battle of Guadalcanal, with reductions in the number of ships to accommodate the players available.

The game started with no models on the table. The GM determined visibility and provided sighting reports as needed. Rain squalls appeared at random on the east edge of the table and moved west during play.

The results after about 4 hours of play were:
CL Atlanta Destroyed.
Cushing (DD) and a Japanese DD crippled.
Two tiers (20%) damage on Kirishima (BC) from torpedo damage.
About 2 tiers (20%) damage on the lead Japanese DD and the Nagara (CL).
Torpedoes in the water would have threatened the San Fransico as we ended the game.
Victory conditions:
CL Atlanta (1 VP), Cushing (0.125 VP)=1.125 VP for the Japanese.
Crippled Japanese DD (0.125 VP), damage to Kirishima (0.1 VP), damage to the lead Japanese DD (0.03 VP), damage to the Nagara (0.05) = 0.295 VP for the US.
Tactical Victory for the Japanese.
