Conduct Convoy Disruptions

Each enemy warship (except for aircraft carriers) and carrierbased
air unit in the sea zone might cause the loss of 1 or more
IPCs from your income for the turn. The owners of enemy
battleships, cruisers, and/or destroyers rolls one die for each
such unit, and the owners of enemy submarines and/or air units
roll two dice for each such unit.
RE: Sub transport with 2 inf dropping on island, island defended by 1 sub
If the defender scrambles, the defending sub is obligated to surface and fight?
Transport Chosen Last
a) 3 German U-boats attack UK destroyer and transport in SZ109
b) UK Elects to scramble (because there is a destroyer present)
c) Germany Rolls 3 dice, gets 1 hit, UK looses destroyer
d) UK Rolls defense 4 at 4 and 1 at 2 (note: (4 at 4) 3 from UK 1 from Scotland) UK gets 2 Hits, Germany loses 2 U-boats
What remains for next round of combat
UK transport with 2 fighters
Can the lone U-boat kill the transport?
RE: Dice Towers
When i was researching dice tower construction i stumbled across examples of cheap and easy dice towers. One was even made out of an i-phone case. For sure a good road to go down if material is not readily on hand. Most people drink milk and would have a milk carton.
Just for interest sake, I thought i would share a couple Dice tower reviews;
I had to line the baffles with a sticker sponge material from the dollar store. The dice passing through the tower made considerable noise. My better half ever shut the door to the basement lol. I can’t wait to post a few pics of them in action.
