    Have you played Silent Hunter Commanders Edition Eric?

    Nice game, playing as Axis of Allied boats through the war.

    Never heard of it, Neil? I just tried finding it on BGG, but to no avail.

    It's a computer game. Edition 4 is pacific and 3 is Atlantic I think.

    Well that starts the day off.
    Here is another Nautical brew. That should sort out the Subduction question.

    Very amusing Dave.
    I'm starting to get interested in the settings for some of these adds.
    Is that actually St. Austell in the background of the Admiral's Ale.
    I wonder for which Admiral it was earmarked?

    My Ale for today. I know it's a bit out of period, but I could not resist it, and besides it is from one of my favorite Breweries.
