This is a unique game, and comes with an oversized book written by Jon Sutherland and Simon Farrell. The game is a simulation of the struggle between the navies and armies of Great Britain and Spain the summer of 1588. Spain wins by occupying London after defeating any English troops in the town. England wins when Spain has no armies left that can reach London and attack. Of course the easiest way for England to achieve this end is to defeat the Spanish Armada.
