About this deal

A Captain Sonar egy könnyen tanulható társasjáték, 2 - 8 játékos részére, az átlagos játékidő rövidebb, csak 45 - 60 perc. A játékot az Év Játékának jelölték 2016-ban (BGG), illetve ebben az évben több, összesen 3 másik elismerést és jelölést is kapott. A társast, a könnyebb tanulhatósága ellenére, csak 14 éves kortól ajánljuk kipróbálni. A játékmenet erősen épít a visszatartott információ, a szövetségek, a szerepjátszás, a vonal húzás és a szimuláció mechanizmusokra. Captain sonar is a two-eight-player board game designed by Roberta Fraga and Yohan Lemonnier. It is real battleship warfare where you have to destroy the other team’s submarine. It’s recommended you play with eight players because there are four roles in the game: the captain, radio operator, first mate, and engineer. When all spaces on a gauge are full, the system must be activated before the spaces can be marked again.

The Engineer takes the sheet and shows it to the enemy Engineer to confirm that no lines were drawn outside the white outline. If this is not the case, the team must start over. Again all end decisions lie with the captain, but only a correct MCC (multi-crew cooperation) and proper use of CRM(crew resource management) turn-by-turn mode: The Captains alternate announcing a course, allowing as much time as necessary for all players to complete their tasks.

At the beginning of the game, the Captain draws an "X" on the sea space of his choice to determine the starting position of his submarine. This is not shown to the enemy team.

Biggest challenge was getting the captains on each team to wait for their first mate & engineer to confirm "OK" before announcing the next move Each time the enemy Captain announces a course, the Radio Operator draws it on his transparent sheet (beginning anywhere, since he does not know the enemy's starting location). This system is not used in every scenario. It's function is determined by the scenario, which also indicates whether the gauge is considered to have four or six spaces.

🍪 Privacy & Transparency

Right then I knew that Captain Sonar was something special. Located deep in the heart of game publisher Asmodee’s sprawling booth on the Gen Con vendor floor in Indianapolis, a crowd had been growing around us this whole time. Few other games attracted more excitement, or larger groups, during the convention’s opening days. Before the weekend was over, it had sold out. If you take any damage of any kind, you must announce it. Damages taken cannot be fixed, but some of the systems are self-repairing. This mechanism works perfectly, because as soon as you hear some rumblings from the other team that they are thinking about dropping a mine or shooting a torpedo, you know that they think , at the very least, that they’re close to you. Then it’s a mad rush to figure out where they are or escape! After that, the captains of both teams will shout “Dive”, signaling the start of the game. They will both announce the course of their submarines and draw a route on their maps. This is illustrated in the Alpha Map below. Announcing a course

And that’s when we heard the captain of the enemy team shout from across the table: "Firing torpedo!"That’s really too bad, because there’s something entirely enjoyable about being part of a team, but still getting a solid sense of competition that pure cooperative games don’t give you. Engineers and First Mates, workin’ together

When all four symbols on a circuit are crossed out, they repair themselves; the Engineer erases those breakdowns. A kapitány adja meg az irányt, az első tiszt kezeli a különböző fegyverrendszereket és a tengeralattjáró eszközeit, a mérnök arra ügyel, hogy a rendszerek lehetőleg ne hibásodjanak meg, a lokátoros pedig vadul kagylózza az ellenfél kapitányát, és próbálja meghatározni az ellenfél pozícióját. Bizony, nem csak úgy vaktában lövöldözünk, meg aztán a fegyverrendszernek is rendben kell lennie, a torpedót is be kell tölteni, nem lehet úgy köpködni, mint a meggymagot. To avoid drawing outside of the transparent sheet, try to start in the middle of the sheet at the beginning of the game. Not sure what game to buy next?

The Four Different Roles Aboard

If the route goes outside of the transparent sheet, or if you become lost, erase everything and start over. I've played Captain Sonar a few times and I really enjoyed it. The trouble is just how infrequently I would get exactly 8 people together to play this game. Radio Interceptor: listen to enemy Captain and map it out, primary communication with firstmate. In conjunction with first mate the radio would be able to discover the best estimated location of the enemy. If you’re only interested in receiving the newest games this is the box for you; guaranteeing only the latest games! Buy New Releases Box » The next defensive system is silence. With this system, you can move four spaces without announcing it to the hearing of the other team. You can make it known to your team members by either showing them the map or giving them directions. When this is done, the engineer and the first mate can cross out the symbols on their sheets: the first to repair any breakdowns, and the second to charge the systems.
