Thunder in the East is a two-player (although it is easily played solitaire as most wargames are, and it is great for small teams) strategic-level WWII East Front wargame from legendary game designer Frank Chadwick. It has grown from its humble origins in the classic introductory wargame Battle for Moscow to become a Big Game where the focus is on the gameplay and not rulebook exceptions and minutiae. [Forum]

Smith with a strong narrative around the pilot as you look to increase your prestige, earn skills, and rise in rank through promotion and receive awards. [Forum]
this game offers a new look at the bloodiest campaign of WW2, with the most detailed and accurate map ever offered. SOLO play is the core of this remarkable game with 4 modes of play: Solitaire, 2 player co-op, 1 vs. 1 and 2 vs. 1. Precision cut, colorful wooden blocks let you apply your tanks and assault troops against the enemy, while full sized cards offer both sides new abilities and regulate game time. Average game time is 40-60 minutes! VentoNuovo Games has 3 successful kickstarters already – and all shipped ahead of schedule! This is their most ambitious game yet. [Forum]
third game in the Eagles of France series, following Waterloo 1815 and Austerlitz 1805. The focus is on morale, attrition and commitment of formation (division & corps) at the right time, rather than tactical chrome. The detailed order of battle and the scale of the game allow players to really see the action and the game system provides a quick but realistic resolution. [Forum]
Final call for this game as Kickstarter ends soon! Who Should Get Medieval? Anyone who likes 90 minutes of battle, backstabbing, plagues, and Mongol hordes. Medieval is for 3 to 5 players with stretch goals that extend the action to 2-player and 6-player games, and solitaire too. [Forum]
