Replay any number of actual or hypothetical encounters, including the full Battle of Jutland (1916). The game system is highly playable but retains a realistic "feel". Even fleet-sized encounters may be easily played using the D&B system.
D&B: North Sea is a new edition of D&B (2015) that incorporates new graphics and components plus some significant changes and additions from earlier editions. The most important change is the introduction of flotation ratings for each ship, affecting how the ship handles damage. A handful of ships have received revised, updated ratings. New optional rules (such as National Characteristics, and advanced fire progressions) bring the game to a new level. Overall, the changes to this edition are sure to please D&B veterans, and gamers new to naval wargaming. D&B: North Sea is a thoroughly revised edition of D&B: Jutland (now out of print). Dreadnoughts & Battlecruisers is a naval wargame that stresses playability and historicity.
