Designer of Caporetto: The Italian Front 1917–18 in Strategy & Tactics Magazine #337 from Decision Games
Sleepwalkers: Imperial Rivalries and the Great War is a diplomacy simulation. Up to five players represent the major European powers Germany, France, Great Britain, Austria-Hungary and Russia in the period from around 1900 to 1918. Struggling for prestige, they impose protective tariffs, arm themselves, expand and form alliances. Historical events such as the Dreyfus Affair, the Boer War, the Berlin-Baghdad Railway, the Russo-Japanese War and the "Black Hand" increase tensions. Crises are inevitable and force every government to choose between mediation and mobilization.
Against the Odds Magazine is now shipping their latest XL sized "Annual," presents the 1917 Battle of Arras, which is better known to history as "Bloody April." With roots to designs like "Chennault's First Fight" and "Forlorn Hopes," designer Paul Rohrbaugh focuses on air operations but provides context with their impact on the ground war. The Cruelest Month will give you a full selection of aerial operations, including balloon busting, ground attack, bombing, and the all-important photo-recon and artillery observation missions, plus the fighter dogfights that center around protecting or stopping all the others.
