By Stealth and Sea is live (Underwater warriors)

Update: By Stealth and Sea: Italian Human Torpedo Attacks in WWII has launched on Kickstarter, and the campaign will run for 21 days. There is only one pledge level that gets you the game but you may choose to add other games by David Thompson to your order as well (Castle Itter, Pavlov's House, For What Remains and their extras).

Send your Italian frogmen on a human torpedo mission during WWII in By Stealth and Sea: the next Kickstarter project by DVG, launching on February 25.


The game is based on the actual historical action of the Decima Flottiglia MAS during the battle of the Mediterranean. Playing either solo or cooperatively with up to two more players, you take control of a unit of three manned torpedoes and send them to attack allied vessels in Gibraltar, Alexandria or Algiers. You may play a single mission or chain your missions in a campaign.

On each turn, you will first check if your torpedoes and equipment are damaged. Then, you use your action points to perform various actions (move, maneuver, attach/detach warhead, dive or surface), the success of which often depends on skill checks (dice rolls). Your goal is to enter the harbour and attack the vessels within but the Royal Navy may detect you and ruin your plans.

It is definitely worth a look. The theme is unusual and the artwork is well made. I am a little hesitant in case the dice rolling is a bit too much but I will check some videos.

Looks interesting (both the theme and gameplay). And Thompson makes good game designs (Pavlov's House and Normandy).
