Description Edit | History

Admiral is an abstract, hex-based strategy game with a rock-paper-scissors mechanism.

The theme hinges around a French/British conflict about the South African colonies shortly before World War I. In reality the conflict was averted by the French need of British support against German aggression, but in Admiral it blooms out with a major naval engagement around southern Africa.

Each player controls three ship fleets, consisting of submarines, destroyers and cruisers. Each fleet has a command ship and a command base. If the command ship is sunk or the base is invaded the entire fleet is destroyed and its ships removed. Each player also controls a battleship which commands the entire fleet, and a corresponding fleet base. Sinking the opponents battleship or invading his fleet base wins the game.

On his turn a player may move one ship from each fleet or forgo moving one fleet in order to move the battleship instead. Ships move along the corners of the hexes, submarines in the hexes. Subs can sink cruisers and battleships, destroyers can sink subs, cruisers can sink destroyers and battleships can sink both cruisers and destroyers.

Admiral plays out similar to chess, a chess with four kings, an action point allowance system and a rock-paper-scissors capture mechanism.

The publisher claims Admiral to be playable by 2-6 players but in reality it is a pure two player game.

3 Amiral Rules in English v. 1.0
Preliminary Version 1.0 This is an inofficial translation, but with the permission of the gamedesigner, Johnny Johansson. Ive tried to keep it as close to the original as possible, even though I might have had worded it a bit diffrent myself. It will make alot more sense if you have the rules-pamphlet since I also translated the captions, but did not include the pictures. Johnny told me they are working on rulestranslations in english, german and possibly russian. He also told me that they are working on a "light" version of the game wich will retail a bit cheaper.
