Sci-fi Props & Gadgets 2
by Daniel K.
Publisher: WyldFurr

Sci-fi Props & Gadgets 2 Nearly half the included items are modern day looking items, from microwaves and fridges to basic furniture (desks, chairs, tables) that look straight out of Ikea. Extremely dissapointing, and results in a very limited selection of usable objects.

Grand Fleet Actions in the Age of Sail
by Julian R.
Publisher: A and A Games
Date Added: 12/07/2020 08:03:12
Grand Fleet Actions in the Age of Sail These are the Napoleonic naval rules that in my opinion can work brilliantly with the miniatures produced by Sails of Glory. The combination of Sails of Glory ships (minus the irritating bases) and GFAAOS is a real winner. Fast play, yet more than enough complexity to make a major naval action engrossing to play. A thumbs-up from me.

Blitzkrieg in the West 1940 Volume I 50 Wargame Scenarios French vs Germans

Blitzkrieg in the West 1940 Volume I 50 Wargame Scenarios French vs Germans I was thrilled to bits to find that someone had developed a comprehensive set of scenarios for the 1940 blitzkrieg battles and I grabbed the Germans vs French and Germans vs Brits straight away. The books are comprehensive and offer good background information, orders of battle and terrain maps. I'm very happy with them.

Blitzkrieg in the West 1940. 10 Wargame Scenarios. The Battles for the Gembloux Gap

Blitzkrieg in the West 1940. 10 Wargame Scenarios. The Battles for the Gembloux Gap I had recently walked the Gembloux battlefields and I was beginning to prepare a couple scenarios for gaming, when I became aware of these. The scenarios are written primarily for the Command Decision ruleset, but will convert easily to any set that share the same platoon/element structure. I converted a couple to Spearhead without difficulty. This is a superb resource for gaming the Gembloux battles. Whilst not a professional production, the scenarios are nice and clearly laid out and also provide a good mix of scenario sizes. The author provides good historical background, detailed well researched Orbats, and an excellent gaming map alongside a contemporary contour map of the battle site. I wish that I had this available to me when I visited the battlesites. The research that has gone into these scenarios is impressive, so much so that I went on to buy the authors full collection of 50 French 1940 scenarios, from which these are a subset. ...

Blitzkrieg in the West 1940 Volume I 50 Wargame Scenarios French vs Germans I was a bit shocked to find that someone has left a two star review rating for this product. I feel this is wholly undeserved. For a long time I have researched, developed and gamed scenarios taken from the battle of France 1940, I have even been able to walk some of the battlefields to get a better understanding of how the battles developed the way they did. I can say without hesitation that, based on my own analysis and experiences, the quality of of the work that has gone into this scenario collection is outstanding. The Orbats are spot on, the scenario mapping is faithful to the actual terrain and the scenarios are well chosen, both in terms of interest and gaming challenge. Whilst the scenarios are written with the Command Decision ruleset in mind (personally I prefer the somewhat simpler Spearhead) there is ample information within each scenario to convert these to other rulesets that use the same basic platoon based element structure. I have no hesitation in giving this collect...

Horizon Wars: Zero Dark
by Anthony G.
Publisher: Precinct Omega Publishing
Date Added: 12/04/2020 23:23:56
Horizon Wars: Zero Dark This is an absolutely amazing sandbox skirmish game. It plays amazing solo and co-op and I can finally play a Star Wars in the style I want to play. You can use about any mini so this ruleset will cover star wars, generic sci-fi, modern and futuristic military operations. Throw in the Nemesis rules from the Nemesis expansion and you can create an amazing solo campaign. Endless possiblities and super fun to play. The hero creation really lets you design your custom team to your style. The mechanism to generate bonus actions that can be used by any hero really gives this game more feeling of team coordination compared to any skirmish game i have played. 5 stars! I cant wait to see where this system goes and what is to come! ...

Lovecraft's Revenge
by Olivier S.
Publisher: Rebel Minis
Date Added: 12/04/2020 02:31:37
Lovecraft's Revenge "Lovecraft's Revenge" is a 79 pages long book by Jay Mackesy, using a version of Ed Teixeira's THW system, a "skirmish game" half-way between a wargame and a gamebook which can be played GM-less. As indicated by its name, this one is set in an environment inspired by the writings of the US horror writer Lovecraft (i.e. mostly New England in the first half of the 20th century). I've often been critical of THW's "one-stat" system, but this time, the author has managed to endow this game with ingredients that turn it into a worthwhile must. The actors of the game are divided between Humans (a dozen professions that you can choose for your character), Animals (ex: cats which can be omens of another encounter...), Creatures (i.e. monsters) and Deities. The system still works with the One-Stat (Rep) which can increase or decrease following your good or bad results in the adventure, but it is counterbalanced by an excellent selection of Attrib...

Fantastic Battles
by Slorm C.
Publisher: NLWright
Date Added: 12/03/2020 07:39:52
Fantastic Battles Nic works his magic again to improve what was already good. In the past the author published the wargame called "Irregular Wars: Conflict at the end's world" focused on the skirmishes between the conquerors and the natives in the exploration period of the XIV and XVII centuries; and it was a good regulation, quick and easy to understand and play. Well now, Mr. Wright has managed to streamline the game and add something that makes it enviable, and that is that now you can create your own units, adding special rules and modifying the profiles. In this way, the regulation becomes a timeless system, which will allow you to use the regulation in any period between the dawn of Humanity, until the first steps of the First World War. With a system of bases that adapts to the armies you already have, since only the front of the base matters, you can play with any army. It uses D6, and it can be played on a table around 90x90cm. You will also find plenty of troop examples so you ...

Adventures with Captain Nemo
by Olivier S.
Publisher: Rebel Minis
Date Added: 12/03/2020 03:11:00
Adventures with Captain Nemo "Adventures with Captain Nemo" is a "skirmish game" by Ed Teixeira, i.e. half-way between a wargame and a gamebook where you can manage your small team against foes, as set by the scenario and the random encounters. There are 15 pages of rules which use the "one Stat" system, i.e. Rep(utation) which can increase or decrease following the outcome of your actions. The adventures take place in one of THW's settings, Lemuria, a lost world located in the Indian Ocean. I was looking forward to explore this island with its teaming jungles and its monsters but all of this ends up as a major disappointment. There is nearly no description of Lemuria and your potential foes are nothing else than a one-stat like each other. The 17 pages of campaign is a railroad of nine missions given to you by Captain Nemo; therefore there is no replayability but, anyway, except perhaps for the two naval battles, the encounters are mere dice-throwing versus Rep 3, 4 or 5 so that...

Four Against the Great Old Ones

Publisher: Ganesha Games
Date Added: 11/29/2020 23:26:40
Four Against the Great Old Ones A lot of excellent content and potential here, but there are production issues and the game can easily beome a die-rolling exercise. * Can't search the formatted version (you get a plain text version without art as well) * No bookmarks or hyperlinks for either version (and this has so much content to refer to you really need it). And there's some special bullet character that isn't showing up properly. * The characters and encounters are very interesting - but they all just end up as a die rolling combat exercise, so this can easily get boring unless you are going to flesh out the narrative extensively and houserule the reactions of the NPCs - or run this with a GM (which would work extremely well). ...

Shipwreck These rules are just great - long in the tooth now, but well suited to cold war period. Harpoon like outcomes in a fraction of the time and charts. The gold standard for modern naval games.
