... and on the eighth day S. Craig Taylor created WS&IM. I once went so far as trying to obtain the rights to this gem (still have the nice letter I recieved from Mr. Taylor as I sought the the location of the Grail) to keep it alive. I've played it with the counters, with miniatures, and using the original Ship O'the Line rules ... bliss. The pacing of a si-move wargame might have been (shoot--probably WAS) created just to showcase the near-perfect flow of a hard-fought WS&IM engagement.

WSIM was one of the first wargames I bought back in the late 70's. I play it regularly and have even adapted the rules for use with miniatures.

Probably a bit dated and overpassed by computer simulations. However, a brilliant design for its time. Outstanding

I love this game. I usually only play the basic rules. It's great fun to maneuver with the wind to the right spot and let loose with a whole broadside. Most plain-looking board and pieces I've ever seen, but somehow it works. But miniatures would make it even better.

Great game with so many scenarios and possibilities. A salesman in a game store told me when I was 13 that this was the game to get. And he was right.

Great game. Scenarios well balanced, but the point based fleet building rules are good too.

I have played this game regularly since it first came out, and also bought and painted miniatures to keep the interest going. The hex rules yield a too-liberal definition of a rake, but otherwise very good. It teaches the relative benefits of the "weather gauge" and "lee gauge" with little pain to the players. An excellent tool for understanding why Age of Sail battles were fought the way they were.

One of the great games of combat in the age of sail - I'm not sure it's every been done better - Four of us from my gaming group played in one of the early Origins tournaments in Baltimore and we all finished in the top 8. Lots of fun.

This was on my original Top Five in high school. Love the mechanic of simultaneous orders and seeing what happens. Nothing better than a rake! I showed this to my youngest, who likes Pirates of the Spanish Main, and the little chits scared her off. She doesn't like any game with tiny cardboard counters, apparently.

Fanatastic game. Whilst perhaps the game mechanics can be a little wearisome the playing is brilliant and the strategic thought of how to move your ship, against the wind etc to get into a fighting position - brilliant.
