Board game featuring a map of Cuba.

The Game of Naval War

This naval warfare game of chance includes pieces shaped like armed cruisers. Players would spin a dial to move their vessels across the board with the objective of landing in Cuba, Puerto Rico, or the Philippines to raise the U.S. flag. The map is distorted to represent South Florida alongside Hong Kong—both ports of departure for U.S. naval forces during the war.
