This leaflet covers sea battle tafl, an elegant modern variant depicting a battle at sea. A valuable cargo ship is protected by a small fleet of escorts, when a larger pirate fleet attacks. The cargo ship, which is difficult to capture but may not give battle itself, must escape from the area before the pirates seize it.
The elegance of this game comes from the simplicity of its rules, which are relatively free from exceptions and special cases. The only special case is the cargo ship itself, which has different capture rules to the other ships. The game is also well balanced, and is therefore suitable for tournament play.
