Tarawa - Japanese and US Forces in the Pacific Theatre 1942/43
by Alex B.
Publisher: Red Octopus Entertainment
Date Added: 07/08/2020 19:08:26
Tarawa - Japanese and US Forces in the Pacific Theatre 1942/43 Not particularly good, though some effort has been made to make sense of the battle. In the first place, there are numerous typos. Which are somewhat forgivable given that English is apparently not the author's first language. However, the book is promoted as if it contains scenarios and information for fighting the battle, or perhaps fighting a campaign based upon the Betio portion of the Tarawa Campaign. The problem is that none of this actually appears in any useful capacity. There is one generic scenario, not specific to Tarawa. There are no Orders of Battle. Army lists use the "Flames of War" format, right down to the rating of units per morale as "Trained/Veteran/Conscript," or "Confident/Reluctant/Elite." The units given aren't specific to Tarawa, either, though the authors do name units that were on Betio or Maki and used similar organizations. Most of the Japanese armored vehicles discussed (the Ka-Mi, the So-Ki, the Type 89) have no...

Space Vermin From Beyond!

Space Vermin From Beyond! It's a good game for the price. Easy to assemble, fun to play. Some rules are a bit vague, but the game is more about a narrative than a deep strategic planning, so that's not a deal braker. I wish there were more scenarios though.

BATTLESPACE: ULTRA MODERN SOLO SKIRMISH GAME
by Martin S.
Publisher: Table Salt Gaming Designs

BATTLESPACE: ULTRA MODERN SOLO SKIRMISH GAME This was fun, easy to pick up game. The low cost and low model count really reduce the barrier to entry that some games have. The SITREP deck was relentless and made the game challenging. I know I'm having fun when I yelling at my minis to get their head in the game! The games seem to go between 45-60 minutes so it's pretty easy to get a game in after dinner without being up all night. The format of the game seems to lend itself to customization so you could add gear or create new enemies fairly easily. While the game comes with 5 missions and a bonus mission you can very easily create your scenarios as well. Overall a very enjoyable experience....

Knyghte Pyke and Sworde

Publisher: Nordic Weasel Games

Knyghte Pyke and Sworde Medieval mass skirmish! That’s what it says on the cover! If you are looking for an eloquent multiplayer rule set that enables fun skirmish situations from earlier eras of warfare then this rule system will suit you wonderfully. The mechanics are easy, but not too simple. Based on d6 rolling higher than a target number. The basic rules get out of the way of the fun, and are simple enough to learn fast. However there is enough intricacy to keep it fresh, without becoming dive into hardcore simulation. A basic game can easily be played with a handful of foot or mounted figures (typically 3 or 6 of each type per unit), and a couple of lone figures to represent individuals that are a cut above the rank and file. Worry not though, the rules can handle much larger scenarios and figure counts the only thing that will be affected is the game duration. You will find that there is nuance to the different types of unit classes that make for interesting strategic and tactical options. ...

Stars and Steel - main rules
by ben w.
Publisher: Assault Publishing Studio
Date Added: 06/30/2020 20:00:32
Stars and Steel - main rules The 16 page-pdf looks professional, clean, and engaging even though it is in black-and-white. There are plenty of clear tables, and there is enough stylish indulgences to break up the writing. I particularly like the triple bars on the top and bottom of each page, interrupted only by the page number at the bottom and three stars at the top. There is some impressive black-and-white imagery of space battles within, but there is also a comical image of two astronauts making hull repairs on page 10 that just doesn’t work for me; I like my games serious (minus the occasional WAAAGH), and that image inserts a little too much slapstick into my readthrough. Content-wise, the rules are well thought out, though rigidly explained. It took me a couple rereads to understand the Modifier Points, and I didn’t fully understand their insistence that Battleships would be represented by BB, Cruisers by CC, and Destroyers by DD. Also, it is only near the end of the document that they explain that there...

SARAJEVO 28th June 1914
by ashley m.
Publisher: Lumaca Games
Date Added: 06/29/2020 19:07:57
SARAJEVO 28th June 1914 I bought this game as I like how Marco designs his games. He is a prolific small game designer with several big games to his credits. One thing I have noticed is how inexpensive Lumaca Games are. One can collect pretty much every thing. In this game, one plays the Serb assassins who murdered Archduke Ferdinand and his wife 106 years ago in Sarajevo (June 28th 1914). Sort of morbid, but honestly, what wargame isn't? And honestly, how in the heck did Marco come up with game? There are no counters, but a game map that one prints out. Using 2D6 that the gamer supplies, one follows the short "turn sequence" until either the Archduke's automobile (a 1910 Gräf & Stift Double Phaeton touring car btw) exits at the end of the game or he is assassinated. Of course, luck followed Gavrilo Princip that day as his two wild shots killed the Archduke and his wife. As mentioned above, no counters are provided and not needed as the only moving piece is the car and can be repres...

Narrow Seas

Narrow Seas Yesterday we had our first Test Game We are really impressed by the rules. The game keeps every player in constant action. The card activation system for movement and gunnery often leads to rising tension around the table. some Questions arose 1. how are dummys moved? do they get an extra activation card or are they moved with their real counterpart 2. sighting is constantly checked...at the beginnig of the gunnery phase all ships with a target in sight put their card in the stack. But what if a ship fires and could now be sighted by boats which till now didnt had a LOS? Will those additional cards be added to the stack? 3. Do you get a max of 1 Suppresion or does suppression adds up for the advantage test?...

BLASTER: Volume 1

BLASTER: Volume 1 I'm really impressed with the quality of the book (softcover version). The artwork, presentation and content are superb. If you own and play all of these games, this is amazing value for money. Even if you only play 1 or 2 of them, the additional material provided (in particular for Last Days) is really strong. I only play 2 of these games but reading this has prompted me to consider one of the others (I won't say which or I'd have the creators of the remaining games sending me hate mail!). Really excited to see the next volume and where the imaginations of these guys takes us next....

Fighting Wings, Third Edition Game Rules and Play Aids Bundle This is an exceptional game that should **not be missing** from the collection of every air wargame enthusiast! **I didn't give it 5/5 because this manual lacks Aircraft Data Cards**. Hopefully they will be released soon.

BLASTER: Volume 1 Great way to get a glimpse on every author's minds, and good value to the games here presented. Even if you only play one of the games, you have a stand alone option with the Mars racing and has valuable stuff that you can adapt to games not presented here. If you don't play some of the games here presented... you'll be tempted. Graphics and layout are attractive and helpful and I'm looking forward to the next installment. My only criticism has to do a little with my expectations... no cyborg cowboys inside, only the cover, so it felt a little disconnected. I would love to get a printer friendly version too, love the full color pages and black borders on the pages, but they won't print OK at my home printer and I usually prefer to read on paper without having to wait 4+ weeks for a PoD version delivered to my country....

F-0024 - ghouls

Date Added: 06/20/2020 04:50:25
F-0024 - ghouls These figures are brilliant. I saw the full preview and really liked the style of the art, the Ghouls are big and intimidating. Some of the first fantasy undead that are actually scary. If you are using Ghouls, grab these! All of Antohammers stuf seems to be a low price and you get a lot for your money. The art is realistic but clear, clean and colourful, it can be seen well from across the table. I was going to buy this set on its own but then I found its in a bundle (which only seems to show up at Wargames Vault) and got that. The skeletons in that are fantastic as well and it's cracking value. If you're running Barrowmaze or a similar undead themed adventure you'll find these ideal....
