Does a game exist on the what if scenario if Kennedy ordered the invasion that nearly happened?

Missile Crisis was probably the first published game on the subject.

A rather unique book on the topic: October 1962: the "Missile" Crisis as seen from Cuba by Tomas Diez Acosta



Propaganda from the Castro regime but still useful.

Well, there was an invasion. Kennedy just did not follow-through with the air support.

Just to be clear, the vintage Attack Wargaming Association title depicts a hypothetical invasion of Cuba in 1962. Missile Crisis depicts that period, not the Bay of Pigs in 1961.

Microgame Design Group did a DTP design on the Cuban Missile Crisis which gave the USA player the option to invade if he wanted to.

And it's a pretty good game, too.

https://www.hamiltonbook.com/when-angels-wept-a-what-if-hist... good book that covers the History before the planned invasion and it's fictional outcome

Cuban Missile Crisis is the Microgame Design Group game, with a very clever card-based political game that runs up the tension before the invasion.

Cuban Missile Crisis: 1962 is some kind of Axis and Allies system game.

The Attack Wargaming game is pretty dire. Avoid.

Decision Games, those Cold War hawks, will blurp out Objective Havana in Modern War magazine #28 (spring 2017). Solitaire and point-to-point movement following Joe Miranda's system; this must be the sixth or seventh game using it.

Only one game on the Bay of Pigs, the invasion before the invasion: Bay of Pigs. Old and hard to find.
