Sandbox Seas: Naval Action Boards Steam Early Access

Boats have fallen out of vogue. Once upon a time, we had a boat in every bathtub and children would flock to boating ponds after school to sail their schooners.

The Flare Path: Longbowsprits

Anything interesting happened in Gameshire during the past seven days? I confess I've been so busy lusting after Naval Action, contemplating Combat-Helo's changing fortunes, and toiling away on 50 Mission Candy Crush (My Operation Little Vittles wargame. Think 50 Mission Crush but with lollipops and gum instead of GP bombs and incendiaries) that I haven't had time to follow this week's news.
