Description: 

The Grandest Fleet is still considered one of the best turn-based computer strategy games ever.

Why is that? It's not because of the AI, which is fatally flawed.

Perhaps it is considered one of the best because The Grandest Fleet is still the only military strategy game which can be won by building opera houses.

A discussion of the strategy of this game follows; there will necessarily be quite a lot of "how-to-play" and "how-to-win", but the main intention is to point out elements in the game that are unique, unlike other computer strategy games.

When such pages have been created for many games, the collection of such pages will form a valuable resource. If nothing else, a game designer might review elements that have appeared in different games, modify his design, and give us a more enyoyable game because of these pages.
