a beer-and-pretzels, two-player game based upon the Axis invasion of Soviet Russia in 1941. Aspects of the rules are fairly innovative and bring a different slant to the campaign. At their core is a simple mechanism to simulate the vital importance of logistics - in particular, the way in which as supply lines lengthen German strategic options reduce - similar to that at the heart of White Dog's "War in the Pacific".

marks the return of not just one, but TWO wargaming classics by Vance von Borries: Drive on Damascus and Bloody Keren, both now published together for the first time in the same package and with the same basic rules set. They have been re-mastered and updated into all-new, super-sized editions. These were well regarded by many as balanced and thoughtful games. They cover fascinating, almost forgotten conflicts that would guide the course of WW II in the Mediterranean Theater. [Forum]
a simulation of the potential for war in Germany, covering events that could have led to World War Three. Players assume the roles of President John F. Kennedy and the NATO powers or Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and the Warsaw Pact general staffs. Confronted with the crisis, players can manage the conflict at a limited level or escalate it to full-out war between the Superpowers. [Forum]
