As promised, this week we see the new British armored cruisers in action against the German battle cruiser SMS Goeben., and the light cruiser Breslau. Spike and I played this game in about twenty minutes, using Bob Cordery's Memoir of Battle at Sea, with the addition of a new ship class, the Battle cruiser.
BATTLE CRUISER Move 4 hexes, Gun Range 10, Floatation 12, critical 4 points
The first turn saw the two German ships move on board from the west, trying to get off the east edge without suffering serious damage (critical point or less). Intercepting from the southeast were the British armored cruisers, HMS Warrior, Black Prince, Defense and Duke of Edinburgh. Turn number two saw Goeben range in on the lead British ship.
