Stringbag is a solitaire module in the Battle over Britain game series. It is a strategy card game (you must supply regular deck of playing cards) where the player flies a single Fairey Swordfish torpedo bomber against Italian warships in Taranto harbor, December, 1940. Play is quick, but filled with decisions. See if you can match the British success by playing a series of games. Includes rules, game tables, counter sheet, and Reference Card. An extra scenario pits the Swordfish against another target: the Bismarck, in May 1941. �Stringbag� was the affectionate British nickname for the Swordfish, and you will be all set to recreate the bombers' most famous actions in this module. Designed by Gary Graber. You must own the core rules of Battle over Britain to play this module.
