Using a system similar to Ancient Art of War, it, too, plays well as a game, but not as a serious study. In fact, optimal tactics herein encourage use of single ships to defeat enemy fleets as opposed to fleet actions.

My single major complaint is that Broderbund has not seen fit to cater to the growing number of IBM and compatible systems that are equipped with hard disks. In fact, hard disk systems are at a disadvantage, as they are usually limited to a single floppy disk drive. To be fair, however, the game requires few disk swaps, even with a single drive system. AAWS is a great game system that will give you many hours of action. I thoroughly recommend that you add it to your collection.
