U-BOOT The Board Game

Created by PHALANX

UBOOT The Board Game is a real-time tabletop game of WW2 submarine warfare. An underwater cooperative war thriller that allows 1 to 4 players to assume the roles of the Captain, the First Officer, the Navigator, and the Chief Engineer on board of a type VIIC U-boat. The game is enhanced by a companion app, allowing for an unprecedented level of realism, as well as a challenging enemy A.I. which will push your skills to the limit. The action unfolds both on the strategic and the tactical scale, always demanding teamwork, efficient crew management, and quick situation assessment.

Destroyer: The U-Boat Hunter and New Campaign
13 days ago – Wed, Jun 24, 2020 at 02:02:35 PM


It's been over a year since the premiere of U-Boot: The Board Game, and Iron Wolf Studio has decided on a new, ambitious project. Currently, they are developing Destroyer: U-Boat Hunter which is a 100% digital PC game. All fans of the innovative board game about the Battle of the Atlantic will find themselves immersed in the theme and once again will be able to experience an amazing underwater adventure.

We also have more plans for U-Boot and we are not leaving it behind. We are currently looking into translating our app into Greek, and we are also discussing the game’s future in order to see how it can evolve and how we can keep making it better.

We are currently also working on Polish translation of rulebook 1.2

Campaign for a new war game: Domination

In addition, it is worth mentioning another game that tells the story of World War II. However, it is not limited to the cold waters of the Atlantic, but reaches the four corners of the world and encompasses the entire conflict, which can be played in 90 minutes. 

The game will allow players to fight on land, in the seas and oceans, and in the air. Not only the iron will to fight will be needed to win, but also team play and clever development of technology.

Moreover! U-Boots are hidden in the stretch goals! Don't miss another history lesson and pure pleasure!
