I am preparing the necessary game pieces for the Battle off Dover (19/29 May 1652)
I followed Iain Stanford's advice, and based the division of the English and Dutch fleets at Dover, based on the sailing order and organization of both (as best we know it). I have calculated the "CV's" (combat values), and just need to do the digital editing to prepare the "stands" (three ships per piece). In my case, they are not the usual sort of thing, but are "tents" with three ship images per outer side. The backside will have names, CV, and the like.
