SS series was a small sized wargames published during dark age of wargames in Japan.

Though the idea introducing new gamers didn't work well, they can bring many retired wargamers back to plays.

Another of first two games.

This was not successful as Rommel's Africa Korps. But, it was playable Japanese battle game covering the most popular one.

Honestly speaking, Napoleonic games were not successful in Japan in those days. So, this was a real challenge for the publisher.

Another smash-hit from this series.

With unusually fewer hexes, the game is strategically deep.

I love this small Midway game.

The problem of most Midway games are both players know what happend in the history. But, the Admirals could not know the enemy force and their objective.
This game let you think how wargames should simulate the history.
