Hot of the presses, here's every game featured in this issue that will ship shortly from RBM.

I've just received a preview of the newest issue of C3i, my favorite magazine, and it is packed with value! Editor Rodger B. MacGowan does a tremendous job.

My only complaint is that it doesn't come out four times each year!

It's still available for order, but if the last few C3i issues are any indication, they don't print a whole lot of extras. Remember, by preordering you save $8.
http://www.gmtgames.com/p-424-c3i-magazine-issue-26.aspx

This issue includes a complete game by Frank Chadwick, Objective Kiev.

Besides the countersheet that we've come to expect, there are inserts included with this issue for eight different games! Wait, you want more, an additional countersheet for 1914!

I love the countersheets. I love the scenarios. I love all the inserts. I can't wait to read all the articles. Why wasn't there a great magazine like this when I was a kid?

If you'd like to read more about C3i, check out the official website! www.c3iopscenter.com

GMT's game in which no one can hear you scream, expect that other people at the table and also those sitting nearby, is expanded with new optional rules and improved with a new log sheet.

This month's cover story is the recent release from GMT, first in the COIN series. I haven't played it yet, but my buddy Rick just told me it is great. Included in this issue is an introduction to the game, solitaire variants, and a look ahead at the COIN series. There's also an insert card for the new non-player rally variant.

The game's designer, Michael Resch, revisits this excellent wargame on its fifth anniversary with a new scenario which considers "what if" the Russians had not left their tails unexposed for Hindenburg and Ludendorff to kick. A second scenario explores an alternate plan for Austro-Hungary. There are articles giving historical background for the scenarios as well as an insert card and an entire counter sheet, 140 counters.

A complete bonus game insert designed by Frank Chadwick! Graphics by RBM!

When the Germans launched Operation Barbarossa on 22 June 1941, they faced both their greatest expanse of territory to capture and the greatest concentration of Soviet armor south of the Pripet marsh in Ukraine. Army Group South launched its multi-national forces (including Rumanians, Hungarians and Italians) with their principal target defined – Objective: Kiev.

The three SPQR scenarios, the Great Battles of Magna Graecia by Dan Fournie, also tie into the Barbarian module. There is both an article and an insert card.

There are also three counters providing minor edits to counters from the module.
