Got force hide? I think the game was called U-boat or U688 or something like that. Still remember watching the monochrome monitor which looked like a radar screen, and the speaker making those silly "beep" sound.

good link for naval warfare fans here
Long before the computer games appears, there were board wargames, some popular ones are "Midway", "Bismarck", etc, I think the company name that made them were called Avalon Hill. It was much more exciting to play against a human player on a board than play against a computer..... :cool:
