On pre-order from MMP, this is a rewrite of the Napoleonic Brigade System (NBS), itself a reworking of the popular Civil War Brigade System. The hallmark of both game series is a written orders mechanic that recreates battlefield chaos and confusion--units don't always (in fact, rarely) do what you want them to do when you want/need them to do it.

While it's not a marquee battle, NBS looks like it's really hit its stride with this iteration of the rules. The game needs a couple of hundred more orders. If you're interested in Napoleonics, check it out and consider placing an order. The price is right too (~$32 IIRC).

I'm a fan of Vance von Borries North Africa campaigns and I'm really looking forward to this one getting updated with the L2 graphics treatment. This game will cover the North African campaign in WWII from the British offensive against the Italians in late 1940 up to the battle of El Alamein.

This is what the designer said about this new edition:

"L2 is going to reprint the game in a more or less like Bitter Woods deluxe edition. Now that Rommel's War is on the pre-pub order page, let me remind everyone that is is a substantially new game. It builds on the old with new stuff, new analysis, better play, and better graphics, much like what we have seen with the continuing saga of the Bitter Woods game.

Rommel's War is a game covering a major campaign of WW II, starting with the Italian offensive into Egypt in September 1940 and ending with the conclusion of the El Alamein battle at the end of 1942, some 28 game months of campaigning. It includes scenarios such as Crusader, Gazala, and El Alamein and has extensive design notes. The game deals with supply issues, strategic issues, and battle advantages. It features an Inset map of Tobruk to give that fortress its full due attention. There is a lot in this package, I expect you will be very happy with its completeness.

~Vance von Borris"

Click on the pre-orders tab at the L2 Design Group's website: http://www.l2designgroup.com/l2%20Design%20Group.html

to preorder.

11. Board Game: Strike Them a Blow [Average Rating:7.52 Overall Rank:7880]

It seems like Strike Them A Blow has been on pre-order forever. MMP doesn't do much marketing for thier non-ASL items (I don't think they have to market ASL, they put something on pre-order and it automatically gets at least 1,000 orders), so the designers have to shill for the games. The designer of this one hasn't been very visible here or on Consimworld. MMP hasn't put much in the way of graphics on the website, but you can see a few sample counters and part of the map.

This will be the 15th game in the Civil War Brigade series, which in my opinion, is the best system for playing out civil war battles in a boardgame. The battle features a conflict between Grant's (actualy Meade's) Army of the Potomac and Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Grant fell into Lee's trap at the North Anna River, but was able to escape before Lee could "Strike Them A Blow".

See what would have happened if the Confederates had been a little quicker, or if Grant stayed around to give battle instead of moving on to Cold Harbor. Pre-order this one at:

Ok, this isn't one I pre-ordered, but one of my gaming buddies did (much to my relief. I was debating it, this looks so cool). I can't wait for it to get published so we can play it .

When Pax Romana printed I used that as an excuse to replace it with this on my GMT P500 order. The lowered price didn't hurt, either.

I guess if I could only choose one of my pre-orders that I look forward to the most, it would be this one. Most of the games on my list I naturally do want and look forward to playing. But this one would be the one I would want to learn and play first, mainly because I enjoyed Victoria Cross so much.

It's funny, because a year ago if you asked me if I would ever own a Texas Revolution game, I would have said 'probably not' since my interest in the war was never high enough to want to simulate any part of it (my father on the other hand would have said 'hell yes!'). Things sure have changed.

Been waiting for this in theory for a long while as the sequel to Red Barricades. Hopefully the maps can be used together and the campaings linked.

Who knows when this will actually get printed. I expect if we're lucky it'll be 2007.

I've had this preordered for a while. It is the Pacific theater updated version of the classic Avalon Hill game Atlantic Storm.

The latest interview of the Long Island Boardgaming Organization's web magazine, INDEPTH, has an interview with Ben Knight, the game's designer. It can be found at www.libogroup.com/libo.htm -- just follow the link to the April issue of INDEPTH.

I've wanted this one for a while, and I started to want it a lot when I heard a reprint could come out in April 2006.

I'm trying to make peace with the fact that It'll probably not see the light of day soon.
