Brezhnev's War

Brezhnev's War: NATO vs. the Warsaw Pact in Germany, 1980 enables two players to game the first month of a hypothesized communist invasion of Western Europe sometime between the fall of Saigon and the start of the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan.

10/5/2017: South China Sea - Shipping Now!

South China Sea by John Gorkowski

South China Sea

South China Sea provides an integrated political-military simulation of near future contention and conflict around the South China Sea. Players take on the roles of China, the United States, Malaysia, the Philippines, and Vietnam. They simulate current political tensions through card play and structured negotiation keyed to real world events in an effort to "move the needle" to their side. Unfortunately, the cards with the greatest chance of moving that needle, such as Chinese Coast Guard and U.S. Freedom of Navigation Exercise, are also most likely to trigger armed conflict.

9/6/2017: Triumph of the Will: Nazi Germany vs. Imperial Japan, 1948 - Shipping Now!

Triumph of the Will by Ty Bomba

Triumph of the Will

Triumph of the Will: Nazi Germany vs. Imperial Japan, 1948 enables two players to game the entirety of alternative history’s worst nightmare: a triumphant Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan, having won World War II and conquered the planet in 1945, square off against each other – for total domination – three years later. The game’s two area-movement mapsheets join along the equator to show the whole world, including the Arctic and Antarctic. This is designer Ty Bomba’s second take on this topic – the first having been the now famous and infamous classic Tomorrow the World, published in 1989. This is a much more accessible, fast-playing and exciting treatment of that nightmare scenario.
