Sink the Carrier is a co-op game, where each player take control of one Douglas SBD Dauntless, a dive bomber, on board the USS Yorktown carrier during the early days of May 1942 in the Coral Sea. The objective is to find and sink one of the Japanese Air Carriers. The Japanese army wins if players lose a certain number of planes or if the USS Yorktown is sunk.
Each turn you have to choose between different actions, move between sea zones, attack enemy planes, or search for the Japanese carrier. All dice rolls are based on poker hands--the better hand you roll, the more efficient the action is. You can reroll as many times as you want as long as you have enough fuel and time. Time is a precious commodity in the game. You have to beat a certain number of event cards each day before the clockwatch runs out.
You will get trophies when you destroy enemy planes, which help your piloting skills improve. You will prepare for the final Dive Bomb, a risky attack maneuver, for which you only have one bomb. Fail and you will have to come back to the carrier reload. Hit the deck, and the explosion can crack the carrier with just one hit.
