This week Julius and I have a quick chat about Bismarck Solitaire, a book game published by Worthington Games in an effort to quickly and efficiently deal with the global shipping crisis created by the pandemic. It's a light wargame in which you play as the famous German warship, the Bismarck and travel the Atlantic Ocean (not the English Channel & North Sea as I thought during the recording) trying to find British Warships and sink them. The fact that I wasn't sure what body of water you are can in give you an idea how light the game is. Well, sail the ocean and find enemies to sink while you plot a coarse on the map. What is really different about this game is that you actually are writing in the book as you play.
