NORTH CAPE is a simulation of surface naval combat during 1939-43, using C in C's unique game system combining the visual appeal of naval ship miniatures with the convenience of a boardgame. Two players, representing the respective commanders, maneuver scale warship replicas and engage in combat to achieve victory for their commands. Eight different historical scenarios provide you a chance to try your skill in a wide variety of tactical situations. Two can also be played solitaire. In addition, a campaign game offers wider scope and endless variety.

Based on the General Quarters miniatures rules.

Excellent "blend" of board game and miniatures. The modified "General Quarters" rules used in the game make play streamlined yet reasonably realistic and very enjoyable, with lots of flavor. The 1/4800 scale C in C miniatures (these are still available from C in C - see link section) are superbly detailed for such a small scale, and look awesome when painted. Easily adaptable to the full "General Quarters" rules for those wanting more detail.
