Blackhorse (Tiny Battle Publishing)The latest wargame from Tiny Battle Publishing is arriving next month. Blackhorse, designed by Arrigo Velicogna, is a modern era simulation tackling the United States and Soviet Union clashing in the Fulda Gap during 1989. The game is for one or two players, ages 14+, plays in around two hours per scenario, and will carry an MSRP of $55.00 when it arrives in December.

About the game:

Summer 1989: The Iron Curtain is not coming down. Tensions are high. Will war return to Europe?…. Blackhorse is a grand tactical game of furious mechanized command in the summer of 1989. Units are companies and platoons… Hexes are 1000 meters across. Turns are three hours each, using an innovative system emphasizing friction and the importance of command and control. Blackhorse puts the player in the shoes of the commanding generals of the Soviet 79th Guards Tank Division and an array of U.S. units drawn from the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment and the 3rd Armored Division. The Cold War has become damn hot. Will you be up to the task of winning this small piece of it?

This game includes:

  • a colorful and accurate 17″ x 22″ map depicting the area of the Fulda Gap.
  • 2 sheets of brutally attractive counters.
  • 4 x highly useful Player Aid Cards.
  • 1 x well-balanced D10.
  • A box to keep it all safe.
  • Blackhorse is a 2-player game, but it may easily be played solitaire with one player playing both sides.
  • Takes about 114 minutes to play a scenario.
