agazine articles on all the games in the package.

A Collection of Fifteen Avalon Hill Games on a Naval theme (Thirteen games, plus updated versions of Bismarck and Midway). Together, these games cover the complete subject of naval warfare on the strategic and tactical level, from ancient combat between galleys and triremes, through the Golden Age of Sail, World Wars I and II, right up to modern submarine combat.

This product includes every component for these classic wargames, presented as high quality PDF files.

- Midway (1991 Version)

Because these games are now out of print, it is virtually impossible to get spare parts for them anymore. Here, then, I solve this problem by providing complete PDF versions of the games: electronic versions that you can open and read on your computer.

The PDF files are unlocked, so you can print them out as spare parts to replace your worn-out original game parts if you need to. Alternatively, print out the games and play them instead of wearing-out your original game! These electronic copies will not fade or wear out, they're yours to keep for life! Compiled, checked and produced by a veteran player of these superb games, you will now be able to replace missing or damaged components of your original games with ease!

In addition, many of the games come with Avalon Hill General articles published on that game.

Here are more details on the games and extras included in this package:
