Jutland (1967) Discontinued 1971, Revised 1974
Freelance design revised by Avalon Hill
Designed by James Dunnigan
JUTLAND was the first commercial boardgame to borrow heavily from miniatures. It did not use a mapboard, using range and movement gauges to play on any flat surface in much the same manner miniatures maneuver model ships. The game was reintroduced in 1974 when Randy Reed made minor changes to the rulebook and provided three short scenarios.
The Boardgamer - another great magazine resource for gamers - has some featured Jutland articles. They are as follows:

In 1906 a crisis in Morocco came close to precipitating WWI 8 years early.
