The Third Reich Battles Aliens in Antarctica!

Christian Sperling's Neuschwabenland is a fast-playing tactical sci-fi extravaganza! German Gebirgsjager troops are specially-trained to survive and thrive in sub-zero temperatures, but nothing could prepare them for the burrowing, acid-spitting Alien Worms, or their two-story tall Tripods! The outnumbered and desperate forces of Nazi Germany's Antarctic colony have an arsenal of grenades, mines, MG-42s and ice-ready SdKfz 251s at their disposal, as well as their secret weapon: the Haunebu, an experimental flying saucer. But will all that be enough to triumph over the endless Alien horde?

Neuschwabenland comes with six unique scenarios played on a single map, along with a Campaign Game that links the scenarios. Play time for each scenario varies from 30 minutes to an hour. The game's beautiful map, crisp rules layout, and gorgeous counters were all created by designer Christian Sperling, resulting in a uniquely cohesive experience. It's a balls-to-the-wall pop-art popcorn thrill-ride you'll want to revisit time and again. It's so cool, it's Antarctic.


  • 88 colorful counters, depicting the cold-blooded Aliens and the cool-under-pressure German Mountain Troops
  • 1 chillin' map (both full size and split for home printers)
  • Easy rules and scenarios, so you can start playing mach schnell

A question for those who have seen the counters and map: how "prevelant" is the N*z* imagery? i've lived in Germany long enough to have absorbed the natives' well-deserved allergy of/disdain for "the _other_ N-word," and don't want to play a game where related labeling and imagery are prominent (outside of a straight WW2-themed game, where having those particular antagonists is kind of the whole point). i.e., if one were to mentally re-label the soldiers as Bulgarian, Cimmerian, Hawaiian, or simply "German", would the counters support that or are they still visually prominently N*z*?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
