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.
