Raiders of the Deep: U-boats of the Great War, 1914-18 is a solitaire, tactical level game placing you in command of a German U-boat during WWI (The Great War). Your mission if to destroy as much Allied shipping as possible, while advancing your crew quality, increasing your Commander rank, and attempting to survive until the Armistice and the end of the war. Raiders of the Deep is based on the popular Hunters game system and marks the first dedicated boardgame treatment covering WWI U-boat warfare.

Raiders of the Deep places you in the role of a German U-boat Commander where you will conduct numerous patrols to sink enemy ships. You command one of 19 available German U-boat models which undertook missions. Conducting patrols is the heart of the system as you resolve encounters against individual ships, convoys, Q-ships, and enemy aircraft. The success of each patrol is reflected by the total tonnage of ships sunk, which will result in promotion and crew advancement, and in receipt of the highly coveted Pour le Merite award. Just as in the real U-boat war, the game system involves chance (as was the case historically), but ultimate success rests on the decisions you make during your career.

the story of the first U-boat war is one of the desperate battles above and below the waves, of piracy and atrocities, and of the frustrations caused by the manoeuvrings of politicians and military leaders who failed to understand the realities of this new kind of warfare.

Raiders of the Deep offers players an opportunity to experience the story of that first U-boat campaign. It was a campaign that combined savagery and chivalry in equal measure, reflecting the twilight of an old system of warfare and the dawn of the modern age: and age of Total War.
