World War II
It's the heart of wargaming: pushing panzers across a map of hexes.
You can get your real wargame fix right here, with four different game systems from which to choose. Each gives a different
perspective on the conflict, either through
scale or system approach. These are our “real
wargames,” the hex-and-counter simulations
that you know and love.
Win the war in an afternoon, controlling an entire theater.
Western Desert Force
Axis and Allied armies sweep back and forth across the North African desert. A great starting point for new players, this game features beautiful playing pieces, a lovely map and full-color player cards. $44.99.
History's greatest battles unfold as Germany and her allies launch a sneak attack on the Soviet Union. With multiple scenarios (including the 1939 Polish campaign) and game variations, Defiant Russia gives repeated fun. $44.99.
Armies at War
Army-level battles, with units usually representing brigades or regiments (sometimes weak divisions) and a ground scale usually at five miles per hex. These games all use the same game system, with some armor-combat wrinkles in Gazala.
Red God of War
The Soviet Operation Mars. Millions of men clash at Rzhev in the winter of 1942, as the Red Army tries to drive the Germans back from the gates of Moscow. $19.99.
The Allied invasion of Sicily, 1943. German and Italian troops defend the island against invading American and British armies in four scenarios. $19.99.
Germany's final offensive on the Western Front meets stout American opposition. Play is fast and fun, and the price is just right. $9.99.
A fast-playing game of the Afrika Korps' last victory. Features a fantastic desert map (click on the box picture and have a look).$9.99.
The Mechanized Battlefield
Our most detailed game system: units are rated for attack, defense, movement, morale, armor quality and anti-tank ability. Artillery is rated for offensive and defensive fire, and faces ammunition limits. Formations play a major role as do leaders and supply. This is real wargaming.
Island of Death
Axis plans to invade the strategic island of Malta in 1942. $29.99.
An expansion book for Island of Death, with 420 new playing pieces and oodles (yes, oodles) of new scenarios. $39.99.
