If you're a fan of Conflict of Heroes, from Academy Games, and live in the Schenectady, NY area you'll be keen to make your way to the tournament taking place next weekend at the Proctors Theatre and Convention Center.
Our friends at GMT Games have a lot cooking this year and to learn about plenty of the developments at the company you’ll want to check out the full March 31st update but here’s what Gene Billingsley has revealed as the latest schedule of production and when to expect the latest titles, including Thunder Alley […]
It’s interesting to see how far the States of Siege line of games has come in a relatively short period of time. The first game in the line, Darin A. Leviloff’s Israeli Independence, was a quick hitter sort of solitaire game; a couple pages of rules, crank a play out in around fifteen minutes, Bang! Zoom! Dust yourself off from an Arab thrashing and set it all up to play again. Quite a few of the SoS releases which followed were a bit of the same formula even though some [...]
One title I spoke with AJ Paratore about at GTS 2014, which I think will be of interest to to a lot of our wargaming audience is Hull Breach. Originally released through Not-So-Broken Game Studios, and now carried by Greenbrier Games, the title is a SF card game where players build their fleets to battle […]
If you caught my interview with AJ Paratore and Theresa Garcia, of Greenbrier Games, you heard both discussing an upcoming Kickstarter for what sounds like an interesting title: Heavy Steam. The title will focus on Victorian steampunk mechs battling it out across your table top. A key mechanic seems to be pre-plotting your actions so […]
No one can ever claim Victory Point Games only tackles well known subjects as their latest title in the States of Siege line takes on the pre-Columbian civilizations which arose before the birth of Christ. In Mound Builders, a solitaire game, you’ll look to amass a huge empire throughout North America before the Spanish arrive […]
In honor of the upcoming 70th anniversary of the Allied landings on Omaha, Utah, Juno, Sword, and Gold beaches (as well as marking ten years of their WWII game) Days of Wonder announced a special addition to their Memoir ’44 series. With D-Day Landings, players will receive six huge maps in a new Extended Breakthrough […]
Overall if you’re looking for a solid, nail biting solitaire WWII game (especially based on an event which hasn’t been gamed to death – I’m looking at you Battle of the Bulge!) you’ll surely want to get your hands on A Spoiled Victory.
On this edition I see what you’ll find in Cruel Necessity, from Victory Point Games, designed by my pal John Welch. The solitaire title allows the player to fight any of the three English Civil Wars or tie them all together in a grand campaign. Stay tuned as I’ll have a full review shortly!
Taking a peek to see what you’ll find inside the box of Victory Point Games‘ Cuba: The Splendid Little War. The two player game pits the Spanish against Cuban rebels during the third Cuban revolution of 1895-98.
This time around it’s a look inside the box of A Spoiled Victory, released by White Dog Games, designed by Paul Fish and my buddy Hermann Luttmann. The solitaire game puts the player in the role of Allied commander as they look to evacuate their forces from the beaches of Dunkirk in 1940. Stay tuned […]

Hapsburg Eclipse is available in a boxed edition right now for $25.99. From Victory Point Games: In Hapsburg Eclipse, from designer Darin A. Leviloff, you control the leadership of the Austro-Hungarian […]
This time it’s a look at The Dark Valley, Ted S. Racier’s design set on the Eastern Front during WWII. The GMT title is described as a “players game” where scenarios can be completed in just a few hours.
The immensely popular Load ‘n Load series is moving from the table top to PC screens with the release of Lock ‘n Load: Heroes of Stalingrad courtesy of Matrix Games. The WWII era game is chock full of scenarios and is playable by one or two players. You can grab the download edition right now for […]
Personally, I’ve enjoyed The Hunters, German U-Boats at War 1939-43. It’s certainly not a perfect design, even with the updated rules, but it provides a solid experience which can be completed in about two to three hours; less if you encounter a stretch of extremely bad rolls.
The latest design from Nathan Hansen is out from Victory Point Games and this time around it’s the bit oddly themed Dawgs of War. I mention the title seems oddly themed because you’d think dog fighting dogs (aerial dog fighting not Michael Vick dog fighting, thank you very much) would be more suited to a […]
