The year is 2048 and the task is to hunt your opponents sub down in this innovative real-time game. In Captain Sonar your mission is simple - seek and destroy the enemy submarine!
Players split into two teams and each player takes on the role of a submarine officer. Depending on player numbers each team can have a captain, a chief mate, an engineer and a radio operator.
Each officer has their own part to play and each role is equally as important as the next. Sitting across the table from your opposing team you will quickly discover that communication is the key to success. The team that works best together will most likely be successful in blowing the other sub clear out of the water!
In Captain Sonar all members of a team take their actions simultaneously while trying to track what the other team are up to. When a sub is ready to launch their attack, the action pauses for a moment to see whether it was a hit or a miss. Teams have a variety of torpedoes, mines and drones at their disposal.
Two and three players games are played using a turn-by-turn alternative rather than simultaneous action play. Multiple maps are included in the game with varying levels of difficulty.
Captain Sonar is an excellent hidden movement team game.

For me, it sits directly in the sweet spot between a casual experience that can be enjoyed by anyone and a very hardcore, serious game with expert level connotations. - Read more at Big Boss Battle
