World War Woes: A Review of ‘Quartermaster General’

I first heard about Quartermaster General when I initially met Ian Brody and Eddie Rodriguez at the GAMA Trade Show earlier this year. The title they were displaying was Project Neptune but Brody was also very excited about an upcoming World War Two release Griggling Games didn’t have on hand, Quartermaster General.

Shield Walls, Phalanxes, and the Rise of Western Warfare: A Review of ‘Hoplite’

Hoplite is a solid entry into the world of wargaming the ancient Persian/Hellenic eraand is surely worthy of consideration by anyone interested in the period. There's plenty of meat to chew on with Berg and Herman's design and once you've finished a scenario you'll feel like you've been leading armies across the battlefields of the 4th and 5th century BCE.

The Historical Game Company Launches

A new wargaming company has arrived on the scene and promises plenty of serious simulation action. The Historical Game Company is currently offering three new titles (with a slew of other on the way) including Stalingrad Solitaire, Juarista!: The French Intervention In Mexico, and Fields of Battle Volume One: The Great Northern War. Rumor has it my pal Hermann Luttman is even working on a Franco-Prussian War title which will utilize the Fields of Battle system which we’ll soon see.

Also on the horizon is The War for America: The American Revolutionary War Worldwide.

Fleet Actions in Space: A Review of ‘Hull Breach – Loyalty & Vigilance’

Gamers who like fast paced science fiction action should get a kick out of Hull Breach. Since there's a bit of deck design involved, CCG players should dig the title as well. Hull Breach is fun but it's missing a little something extra which would push the game past just deploying ships and battling it out.

Has Catalyst Game Labs ‘Leviathans’ Crashed and Burned?

While Catalyst Game Labs has had plenty of success with titles like Shadowrun and Battletech, their steampunk, airborne battleship game Leviathans has been plagued with one problem after another. Originally delayed over a year after it’s initial indicated release date, the small print run did sell out but convoluted rules, long play time, soft mini detail, a lack of new miniatures arriving in a timely manner, and a rather high buy in to get started have led to flagging interest as far as continued support for Leviathans.

Now an update on the Leviathan’s website paints a less than rosy picture about the future of the system. While teaming up with Green Brier Games [...]

With the Pearl of the Antilles in the Balance: A Review of ‘Cuba – The Splendid Little War’

While some may not appreciate so much of C:TSLW left to the whims of chance, I like the design because each time you play the experience is sure to be different; a plan of action which leads to victory in one game may turn out to be completely ineffective the next. C:TSLW also provides a good historical feel without resorting to the usual design trappings which normally leaves a predetermined, plotted taste in one’s mouth.
