What better way to spend an afternoon than in a submarine with Captain Sonar?

The radio operator tries to figure out where the opponent's submarine is located.

Captain Sonar is an innovative light-medium game that truly simulates the experience of fighting epic underwater battles as marine soldiers. 2 teams of up to 4 players on each side control state-of-the-art submarines that are trying to locate and destroy each other. What makes the game exhilarating is that it can be played in real-time. 

Players take on the roles of captain, chief mate, engineer or radio operator; each role plays uniquely and are all essential to the team. Gameplay is fast-paced and merciless, while the real-time element puts immense pressure on the captains to make quick but accurate decisions to lead their teams to victory. However, as long as you are organized and communicate well as a team, taking down the enemy sub will definitely be a rewarding experience.

Boardgamers that enjoy both co-op and war games should definitely try commanding a submarine in Captain Sonar!
