I has been suggested that a new category is created here on BGG (WW3/post apocalyptic).

I know we have had lists on this before, but bear with me.

I suppose WW3 means any global conflict after the end of WW2.

Just had a thought, given the reason for the list boardgames only.

Yes I know alternative history and all that, worth remembering it was originally going to be a more traditional NATO Vs Warsaw pact (shame they did not run with that).

The inspiration for Fortress America, which has greatly outsold it.

Late WW3?

Counters represent corps/army level units plus long-range bombers (LRB)and close air support (CAS).

Unlike Fortress America, the double-size map includes Canada (and Canadian armed forces) and Mexico (annexed by the US before Turn 1).

Not to be be confused with the game of the same name based on strategic nuclear warfare between the US and USSR.

Multi-player; plastic miniatures. Is it considered Ameritrash?

Numerous late 20th Century naval engagements -- actual and WW3 -- set in the Mediterranean, the GIUK Gap, and Carribean. Maps track operational movement while a battle board resolves tactical strikes. The game attempts to simulate anti-ship missile attacks on modern combatants, including ECM and ECCM effects.

Counters represent individual ships and submarines from the navies of the US, UK, USSR, France, Israel, Canada, the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, West Germany, Belgium, Italy, Egypt, Brazil, and Venezuela.
