U-BOOT: THE BOARD GAME (Ares Games, 1 to 4 players, ages 12 and up, 30-120 minutes; $99.95)

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be trapped in the middle of WWII with a bunch of men in a very small and claustrophobic place that was underwater for most of the time? No? Well until I played U-Boot The Board Game neither had I. But as is the case with well-made simulation board games, I did find out very quickly. And it’s fascinating and terrifying at the same time.
