Biggest (Little) Leipzig Game Ever, for FREE!

Against the Odds Magazine is releasing four new “Pocket Battle” games that each cover one facet of the Battle of Leipzig — the biggest battle of the Napoleonic Wars. Each mapboard (the size of a post card) is a self-contained game all its own (Pictured is “MARSCHALL VORWÄRTS!” from the NW section.), but it’s possible to put all four together for a big (little) rendition of the entire battle. And, through the month of October, a special purchase at ATO will get you all four pocket battles, die-cut counters, and special rules for combining the four, all for FREE! [Learn more]

ATO 2012 Annual Edition: Forlorn Hopes

New from Against the Odds Magazine. Forlorn Hopes is the 2012 annual ATO edition covering the last really successful operation of the Japanese in WWII, a seldom-examined campaign to take the Dutch East Indies (with their vital supplies of oil and rubber). Though the campaign is often viewed as a walk-over, the “ABDA” alliance managed to cobble together a defense which almost made things very difficult…which means the situation is perfect as a “can you do better?” challenge for both sides. Forlorn Hopes integrates air, sea, and land operations with a full color map, large, die-cut counters, the extra large magazine issue filled with articles, and a ‘bonus’ game — Graf Spee, which will not be available separately. Prices starting at $44.95.
