PBM Dauntless game from 1979-80

Back in 1979-80 I was in a multi-player PBM Dauntless game that was game-mastered Jim McAmis. I saved all the movement reports from the first mission & used the Mac Graphics program Canvas Draw to replay it. I used screenshots of the counters from the Air Force Vassal Module. IIRC we sent our starting positions & GT1 movement plots blind.

This is what the map looked like after the GT2 moves. This is the first move with a new spotting & observation rule. Each player automatically sees any a/c in his 10-12-2 o’clock sectors out to a range of 15 hexes and any- a/c in his 4-6-8 o’clock sectors out to a range of 3 hexes. So only a/c that can be spotted by my a/c (F4U #3&4) are seen on the map. I wasn't a member of AHIKS at the time but I think most of the other players were. I'm wondering if any of the other players are on this board & if they saved any of the mailings from it.

Here's Game turns 3 thru 7. I should add that the pilots were rolled on the Crew Skill Level Table from the Expansion Kit & there were some 20+ kill aces on both sides.

Here's game turns 8 thru 11. That was probably the most memorable AFD game I was ever involved in. Unfortunately I didn't save any of the reports from the 2nd mission which was as one sided in favor of the Japanese players as this one was in favor of the American players. Jim's advice to "watch my tail next mission" was very apropos.

Hi Mike,

Great game report! I enjoyed reading your game report and reliving some of the old games I played with you and the crew there... It was lots of fun! :-) Thanks for posting the reports! :-)
