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]

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]

78-page issue with the insert game, Steamroller, by Hermann Luttmann. This is a highly playable, tense, operational look at 1914's pivotal Tannenberg campaign. Command either the German 8th Army or the Russian 1st and 2nd Armies in the battle that decided the early course of the Great War on the Eastern Front. The game is the latest iteration of the system used in Hermann's earlier Race to the Sea 1914, (as well as Dead Reckoning) with corps, divisions, and brigades traipsing around the wilderlands of East Prussia and northeastern Poland.

This game is set in a timeframe of the near future in which the Iranians may have developed some kind of military nuclear capability. The game's scenario can also be taken as a model of a possible Iranian reply to a US and/or Israeli precision aerial campaign targeted against their nuclear development facilities. Furthermore, though entirely playable on its own, Isis War can also be played as an expansion and update of my earlier design, Oil War: Iran Strikes (Modern War #2). [Forum]

OSS recently had a bit of flooding in our warehouse and, although damage was minimal, we did lose several copies of CounterFact issue 6 magazine.

While supplies last, we will toss in a copy free of charge for any website order that exceeds 50 bucks (in product, sorry shipping cost doesn't count)!
