- RULES -
Polar Bear plays under the rules of the IRCWCC, which is a larger 144th
scale warship combat group. Our rules focus on safety above all else.
Secondarily the rules provide for a common building platform and battlefield
which allows people from different parts of the country to play the same game.
Human nature is often to try to push the boundaries of the rules in the name of
innovation and competitive advantage, but in the end the club at large votes on
rule changes year to year to adjust
for incoming technology and loopholes.
the common questions regarding our rules are summarized as such:
ships are 144th scale
the models are roughly scaled in terms of relative
power of the actual ship and assigned battle classes 1-7
the battle class generally determines the number of
units (from 0.5 to 8.0)
each standard battle unit is either a gun with 50 bbs or a pump
the only offensive weapon allowed is a standard
0.177 caliber bb fired by compressed CO2
speed is determined by both the type of length of
the ship, longer boats are faster, shorter boats are slower but generally turn
85% of the side of the ship is penetrable and
covered only by 1/32 inch balsa and the other 15% is left solid for structural
