|The scenario description|
|The rules for shooting and hitting the Zeppelins|
We meet up at our favorite burger place near the club and then we headed to the club and dove straight into the game.The initial set up had was per the map and the US player, me came in on turn 3.
|The German force of two Battleships, two Battlecruisers, and two Zeppelins|
|On the left side of the zeppelins are the Battleships Fredrich Der Grosse and Ostfriesland. To the right are the Battlecruiser Derfflinger and Moltke|
|The USS squadron coming on board, USS NY in the lead followed by USS AZ and in the rear is USS RI|
|The British squadron of Battlecruisers, with HMS Indefatigable and HMS Lion|
We started to maneuver our ships and the British was set to take on the zeppelins that were being protected by the two Battleships as the Battlecruisers broke formation and headed out to slow the American squadron coming on from the NE corner of the board.
|The Germans starting to break up there fleet|
|The target for the Zeppelins|
|The shells started to rain down early and often in this game|
|US Ships under fire for the first time|
|The British did a great job of holding off the Zeppelins and the Battleships|
|Still steaming along heading to the coast|
|Massive flooding damage!|
|Here you can see the British and US Force at the far end of the board, the coast on the left of the picture and the two groups of Germans as they head to the coast|
|Steady as she goes!!!|
|The British also lose control of there steering.|
|Here you can see the British Battlecruiser Indefatigable with 4 rudder damage markers, that was the least of her worries as she was taking massive damage from the German Battleships|

|The Zeppelins are getting close to the coast. The HMS Lion moves in to shoot at the zeppelins|
|The Germans keep coming on!|
|One of the Baby Killers is taken out of action!|
|Only one Zeppelin left to complete the mission!|
|A view from the German side on the American Line of Battle|
|The British grave yard|
|All three of my new markers in use. I should make more.|
At this point we were all tired since it was the first day back to work here after the holidays and it was getting late. We tallied up the damage and it was agreed that the Germans would have lost the two Battlecruisers as they had taken a lot of damage from the American Battleships. It was also agreed that the last German battleship would survive and the Zeppelin would reach her target and make it off the board. The US Squadron was too slow and too far out to stop the battleship and zeppelin from going off board.
We tallied up the points and it ended as an allied victory. I did not look so good for the allies but the point value of the lost Zeppelin and the Battleship and Battlecruisers made it an Allied Victory.
Here is a chart with the starting and ending hull points for each ship in the game.
|Here is the German Data|
|British Data, not so good for the British....|
|Here is the US Data|
Here is the overall starting and end hull points for all the forces involved in the battle.
|You can see here the Germans lost the most Hull points in this battle.|
