Below is my Top 10 list of games covering submarine actions during WWII. These are games that meet substantially all of the following criteria: (1) submarine command/actions/tactics is major part, if not the focus, of the game (e.g., also includes games the shows interaction between sub warfare and surface ships, raiding, etc.); (2) covering engagements during WWII; (3) addresses the "theme" in an interesting or compelling manner that leaves the player with a better understanding of submarine command, tactics, engagements or actions during WWII (and their various aspects); and (4) fun to play (understanding that this can be very subjective, especially for wargames). This is a list of the BEST! As always, your mileage may vary and some entries may be "controversial." As such, please feel free to comment, debate, or just express your own point of view. Feel free to thumbsup this list (to draw attention and more comments) or any pleasing, interesting or thought provoking entries. If I missed one that you feel is essential or I am "insane for not listing" (trust me, it has been said before), then by all means let the comments fly . . . just be civil. FYI - I am a sucker for comments and discussion and usually thumbsup most if not all of them.

I find that these lists sometimes are helpful for others seeking similar games and the more rich the discussion for more useful the list.

For a complete listing of my Top 10 lists, see--MetaList: Nap's Top 10 Lists.

As always, thanks for reading and participating!
