ATO Magazine and Turning Point Simulations say a final goodbye to Richard Berg with offers on the games he designed for them. ANY purchase during September gets a FREE copy of "Winds of War" (and what a cool story that game is). While larger purchases get "Winds" and your choice of SIX other RB titles. The promotion lasts through September 30.
Against the Odds Magazine has added a section to their website for selling "parts" of issues. This includes counter sheets, game maps, magazines without games, player aid cards, etc. It's also the place to request (for free!) the 'addenda' strips that came in some issue with extra or replacement counters for previous games. Not every item ever printed is available, but lots are. [Forum]
featured insert game looks at the rise of the "First Caliphate" under Syrian rule and its conflicts with a declining Byzantine empire. The game spans competed territory from Egypt to the Dardanelles. Issue #48 also includes a bonus game, "Balck Friday," looking at a small-but-key battle during the Soviet counterattack outside Stalingrad. [Forum]
Confederate Rails lets 2-5 players operate the historical railways of the Confederate States of America (CSA). Unlike other railroad games, the players have their best and finest rail net when the game begins and struggle against each other (and the travails of war) to ship products and make profits while their railroads are degrading. Designed by Richard Berg, players compete for resources, political influences, increasingly worthless money, and the Yankee army to become the most successful railroad tycoon of a shrinking country.
