An area movement, strategic simulation of the Pacific Theater of Operations in World War II with an operational feel.
Oceans of Fire is an area movement, strategic simulation of the Pacific Theater of Operations in World War II with an operational feel. Players command the Japanese, American, and British Commonwealth naval, air, and ground forces that fought in the Pacific and Southeast Asia. The Netherlands forces that fought in the Dutch East Indies and the Chinese forces that fought in Burma are also included. The map runs from India to the west coast of the United States and from the Aleutians to Australia. The game features five scenarios designed for two to three players, while also suitable for solitaire or team play.
This quick-playing, four-game box set explores brigade command on four historical battlegrounds of the American Civil War.
Brothers at War: 1862 is a quick-playing, tactical wargame exploring civil war brigade command. Units are regiments, batteries and companies of skirmishers. This is a quadrigame or set of four games, each featuring a full-size, 22×34″ game map and covering battles from 1862: Antietam, South Mountain, Mill Springs, and Bloody Valverde. Distinctions are made between formed and unformed infantry, deployed and limbered artillery, mounted and dismounted cavalry. Unit facing is not an element of play. Instead, unit deployment in adjacent hexes can trigger pass-through fire, which simulates flanking fire, or fire on compressed lines (both dangerous situations for civil war units).

Death in the Trenches is a strategic-level World War I game covering the entire war, in all theaters, on an army level with divisional formations handled on an off-map display that minimizes map clutter. Designed with the narrative gamer in mind, its more than 500 random events draw you into the global nightmare of 1914-1918. This Charles S. Roberts Award-winning World War One classic is back, in an impressive, brand new, redesigned Second Edition from Compass Games.
Test of Faith: The Arab-Israeli War of 1973is a new game in the Operational Scale Series (OSS) using the new added rules from the Doomsday Project to show this war in a way that has not been seen before. Highly playable but with an emphasis on command and equipment, OSS uses an impulse system to create a test and challenging game to play, but also with new research, plenty of historical narrative.
Case Geldis an alternative history wargame intended to investigate the strategic parameters that would have been in place in mid-1945 if, starting in late-May 1940, all contingency factors (luck and decision-making) had gone optimally for the Axis and badly for the Allies. Case Geld includes rules, two map sheets, and a sheet containing 228 die-cut counters.
