Unlike 'real time' computer games such as World of Warships, players in several of TTH's online games are not all logged in at the same time battling 'head-to-head.' Typically played over several days, Coral Sea and Midway games are played over the internet using email and video conferencing platforms such as Zoom. In alternating turns, players coordinate and email orders to TTH game control, who adjudicates and sends updates back to the players. Looking for a fast play game? Then check out Battle of Trafalgar.
