No Peace Beyond the Line is the first major expansion for the Blood and Plunder miniatures game.
two-player Card Driven Game (CDG) portraying the 1860 secession crisis that led to the bombardment of Fort Sumter and the American Civil War. Fort Sumter is a small footprint game (11x17” mounted map) that takes approximately 25-40 minutes to play. The game pits a Unionist versus a Secessionist player. Each player uses the area control mechanic pioneered in my We The People design and immortalized in Twilight Struggle to place, move, and remove political capital. The location of political capital determines who controls each of the four crisis dimensions (Political, Secession, Public Opinion, and Armaments). After three rounds of play, the game culminates in a Final Crisis confrontation to determine the winner. [Forum]

This Kickstarter is part of the launch of the 4th edition of Streets of Stalingrad. Archival documents and images that became available in Russia and Germany over the past twenty-plus years enabled us to expand and improve the orders-of-battle, maps, and graphics of the original design. This additional research effort was the work of Russell Schulke who is the SOS-4 lead graphic artist. Russ is also a contributor to noted author Jason D. Mark's series of Stalingrad books. These two playtest kit scenarios, The Grain Elevator and Race to the Volga, are offered in this Kickstarter to help publicize the launch of the Streets of Stalingrad. [Forum]

featuring the insert game, Commandos: Europe, which puts you in charge of a team of commandos operating in Europe (and North Africa) during WWII. Your duty is to lead your men on a variety of randomly generated missions (representing orders direct from high command), choose weapons and equipment that are best suited for the mission, decide on how to posture your team, plan your approach, and a method of extraction. However, it is not quite that simple; you must choose weapons and equipment that will be the most efficient utilization of very limited resources; your goal is to disrupt the enemy’s freedom of action in your area of operations with a minimal “footprint” and minimal cost.

Two-Four players take the reins of Roman dynasties, gathering and wielding influence among the senate, military, and people of Rome to ensure that their legacies are remembered by history instead of being lost to the mists of time. Starting from control of one province and a few low-value cards, you are challenged to establish your base of power during this fragile period of Roman history. You must build your armies, take control of valuable provinces, develop your support, and defend yourself against barbarian incursions, inopportune events, and the machinations of your political opponents.

recreates the events that took place in the besieged city of Breslau between 15th February and 6th May 1945. Players take on the role of Commanders of the Red Army or fortress' garrison. They determine the directions of assaults and dispose of available resources. You can check whether the Russians could take the city earlier than they did historically or whether the Germans could organize the defense more effectively. It is up to you whether you will use your advantages appropriately. [Forum]
an operational-level game for two players exploring the 1862 Virginia Campaign. Each hex represents a span of five miles, and each turn is a day. The counter density is low, just a handful of units per side — and the rules are simple, but nuanced. The focus is squarely on the operational level, and the ability of your subordinates to carry out your orders — to march a given distance in a day, to avoid battle, or to coordinate their attacks — is not entirely within your control.

covers Operation Fredericus, May 12-25, 1943. This game module is an add-on to John Theissen’s Baiting the Bear. With Springing the Trap, there are two games that are now playable.

Please note that ownership of Baiting the Bear is required to play the Springing the Trap expansion. [Forum]
covers the Battle of Teruel, December 1937-January 1938. One of the most direct threats to Republican survival in late 1937 was the salient to the south of Madrid. Any further Nationalist gains in that sector could cut-off the capital’s link to the rest of Republican-controlled Spain. With little to lose and much to win, General Enrique Lister’s 11th Division was placed in the vanguard of the Republican counter-attack. Their goal was to take the key defensive position of La Muela de Teruel—Teruel’s Tooth. [Forum]
includes two quick-playing, four turn scenarios depicting the German attempt to drive the Americans from the German border at the Battle of Arracourt, 1944. The first scenario pits two inexperienced German panzer brigades against a confident and veteran Combat Command A. The second scenario pits the experienced German 11th Panzer Division against Combat Command A and the newly arrived Combat Command B, now hampered by restricted fuel supplies. In each scenario both players will be challenged to determine whether it is better to simply attack, or spend valuable time attempting to maneuver in continually changing weather conditions before attacking. Fast, furious, and chess-like, this is a game for players who love concentrated action! [Forum]
The third game in the Shields & Swords II series tackles two unusual engagements -- Battle at Lake Peipus, 1242 and Battle of Karuse, 1270. In both battles, the "invincible" Livonian Order, an autonomous branch of the Teutonic Knights, met their enemies atop a frozen body of water, and in both cases, they suffered a humiliating defeat.
