Yaah! Magazine and Complete Wargame #3

Watermarked PDF

The summer issue of Yaah! is bigger, better, and gamier than ever before, as we make the move from 60 to 72 pages. That's twenty percent more space in which to wax poetic about the games we love, and that enables us to go deeper and broader, with more crunchy detail, more things to play, and a little something for every taste.d1d5781185ebaaef75678cf6c4e680d4?AccessK
We get the party started with an in-depth look at GMT's popular COIN series. COIN fan and BGG stalwart Roger Leroux, of "Roger's Reviews" fame, looks at each of the four titles in turn. He also spoke with series mastermind Volko Ruhnke and A Distant Plain designer Brian Train. They're all of them smart guys, and I think there's nothing better than sitting back and listening to three smart guys yakking. The result is the longest and meatiest interview we've ever run.
A number of historical consims get coverage this time around: the incomparable Ania B. Ziolkowska overcomes an aversion to gaming the First World War when she gets To The Last Man! on the table; vintage hexsides-and-hand-grenadier Brad Smith goes old-school with Victory Games' The Korean War; ye old editor soliloquizes solitaire English Civil War title Cruel Necessity; the tireless Robert Smith, (AKA Smitty) makes his Yaah! debut with a snappy little piece on the Battle of the Atlantic.

But maybe you prefer blasters to bullets? Don't worry, we've gotcha covered-- Matt Foster doesn't just write about Fantasy Flight's super-hit Star Wars: Imperial Assault: he plays jazz with it, he composes a symphony of words that's a genuine pleasure to read. And to continue scratching that itch from a galaxy far, far away, Chuck Turnitsa designed a minicampaign that links one of three possible X-Wing battles with a string of Imperial Assault missions.

But that's not all you'll find in the back-end of our mag. There's also a four-scenario mini-campaign by Tom Russell for Christian Sperling's Nazis-vs.-aliens-in-Antarctica epic Neuschwabenland, published by our sister company, Tiny Battle Publishing, your quarterly dose of Rivet Wars from Nathan Powell, plus some battles from The War-- you know which one I mean! THE WAR!-- as translated into scenarios for Combat Commander, Valor & Victory, and Heroes of Normandie.
The love for Double-ya Double-ya Two continues with this issue's game, and our cover feature-- Mark Stille's Into the Pocket! As the cover proclaims, it's an honest-to-gosh, hex-and-counter, odds-and-CRT, column-shiftin', panzer-pushin' Eastern Front WWII wargame. Can three desperate Panzer divisions punch a hole in the Stalingrad Pocket big enough to save the encircled 6th Army? Or will they be overwhelmed by a seemingly endless supply of Soviet forces? It's good ol' fashioned historical wargaming at its finest, harkening back to the era when gamers were gamers, and the fate of the world hinged on a +2DRM with 3:1 odds!

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.
