"By far the largest fleet action yet attempted was played in the ward-room of H.M.S. St. George the day before she was paid off, the whole German fleet in Chinese waters being pitted against certain English vessels now on that station. A new feature has been introduced by the indication of visible damages on the pieces, a matter of more importance than might at first sight appear, since each player is thus enabled to form some gauge as to what harm he has done to the enemy, and can make his dispositions accordingly."
