Captain’s Sea is a low-to-moderate complexity game for two players who take the roles as captains of the original American frigates (Chesapeake, Congress, Constellation, Constitution, President, and United States) or their opponents from the British or French navies during the turn of the 19th Century.

Preorder Price (List Price): $48 ($69)

Designer: Mark McLaughlin and Fred Schachter

Details: For 2 players (variants for 3-4 plus team play also)

No stacks of armies, no hexes, no overly-lengthy rules to learn - Hitler’s Reich takes five minutes to set up and two hours (or less!) to play. Players fight over Europe, across the North Atlantic and Mediterranean and into Russia.

Preorder Price (List Price): $55 ($79)

Designer: William Terdoslavich and Scott Muldoon

Details: For 2-5 players

Cataclysm: A Second World War is a quick-playing game about politics and war in the 1930s and 40s, designed for two to five players. The three primary ideologies of the time contend to impose their vision of order on the world. The Fascists (Germany, Italy, and Japan) seek to overthrow the status quo, which favors the Democracies (France, the United Kingdom, and the United States), while the Communists (the Soviet Union) look for opportunities to storm the global stage.

You have become a master of the super speedway, having tamed Saint Adriana. You have traded paint at the Velodrome. Verghn’s Grove is old hat. It’s time to become a full-season driver and step up to new challenges, including the very narrow short track, the sweeping turns of the quad-oval, or the fast mile. More road courses are included as well to test your mettle in more directions than left.

Gallipoli 1915: Churchill's Greatest Gamble realistically covers the first three days of the campaign, a time of wild maneuver, of decisive attacks parried by the timely arrival of reinforcements, and the onset of trench warfare. Speed – but not reckless haste – is the key to success.

Details: For 2-4 players

During the Crisis of the Third Century, the Roman Empire nearly collapsed in the face of calamitous internal and external strife, including continuous civil war and barbarian invasions from all directions. Beginning with the assassination of Emperor Alexander Severus, a period of 50 years saw nearly as many different men seize imperial power over all or part of the Empire, until the reforms of Diocletian in 284 AD ushered in an era of peace.

Preorder Price (List Price): $38 ($55)

Details: For 2 players

The Dark Sands takes the game system from Ted S. Raicer’s sold-out and critically acclaimed The Dark Valley: The East Front Campaign to the legendary battles of North Africa in WWII. From the most successful British armored operation of the war, Operation Compass, to the climactic battle two years later at El Alamein, The Dark Sands breaks new ground in portraying the campaigns of the British 8th Army and Rommel’s Afrika Korps.

It is Spring 1940, and both the British and the Germans have plans to invade neutral Norway. The British still have the French on their side, while the German Kriegsmarine will never be larger. Who will strike first? Norway 1940 is a ziplock expansion for PQ-17.

Current Preorders: 457 (+10) P500 since May 2014

Preorder Price (List Price): $35 ($50)

Designer: Hermann Luttmann

Details: For 1-4 players

On the afternoon of July 2nd, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg, Union General Daniel Sickles, commanding III Corps of the Army of the Potomac, made a decision that historians have vehemently debated to this day. He elected to advance his entire corps forward to what he deemed to be “that higher ground” around the Peach Orchard crossroads on Emmitsburg Road. By doing so, Sickles’ judgment set in motion events that would directly lead to some of the most iconic engagements of the American Civil War – the Peach Orchard, the Wheatfield, Devil’s Den, the Slaughter Pen and, of course, Little Round Top.

Current Preorders: 458 (-2) P500 since August 2012

Preorder Price (List Price): $44 ($65)

Designer: Michael Gustavsson & Rick Young

Details: For 2 players.

Michael Gustavsson teams up with Fast Action Battles (FAB) series designer Rick Young to jointly bring you volume III in the FAB game series. These two designers take you to the Golan Heights on October 6, 1973, where during the holiday of Yom Kippur, the silence on the Heights was disrupted by the thunder of tanks, guns, and aircraft when a Syrian assault was launched. The Syrian operation, code-named as Badr, was aimed to retake the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, which the Syrians lost in the 1967 Six-day war.

Preorder Price (List Price): $42 ($60)

Designer: Carl Paradis

Details: For 2 players

In No Retreat 3, players command the Allied (French and British) or German forces, operating them in accordance to one of several historical plans (represented by Plan cards). Manoeuvring forces over hexes that are approximately 30 kilometers across, over turns that represent 4 days of real time each, the vaunted No Retreat series card-assisted game systems are there to create on-map puzzles around each hex, unit and battle as the tense engagements rage back-and-forth and nothing is entirely predictable.

The Eagle of Lille expansion to Bloody April (Air War over Arras France 1917) expands the air war to follow the career of Immelmann and some of the other early aces such as Oswald Boelcke and Lanoe Hawker. Seven new scenarios cover the period from August 1915 to early 1917 while including tables which randomize taskings and add replayability to the scenarios.

Comments: I called it - made the cut for May. Of course, it was a safe bet.

The ink was hardly dry on the documents following the partition of British India in 1947 before war broke out between India and Pakistan. Since the partition, four major wars and numerous smaller conflicts have been waged over much of the same ground. In 1947, 1965, 1971, and 1999 India and Pakistan fought in the mountains of Kashmir and on the plains of the Punjab region to the south. Today, both sides are armed with thousands of armored vehicles, hundreds of advanced aircraft, and dozens of nuclear weapons. With tensions high and both sides heavily armed, another conflict may be just a matter of time.

Preorder Price (List Price): $45 ($65)

Designer: Carl Paradis

Details: For 2 players

This game will be using a mix of all the previous No Retreat! game concepts/systems, including some from the solitaire module, to depict this long and gruelling campaign with the minimum of fuss and the fastest possible play time. Each turn will represent one or two months (depending on the weather), but not every Turn will see major action! So during Frontline lulls very little combat, if any, will take place but for frontline attrition, so these turns will pass in a speedy manner.

Comments: Carl made an interesting comment last month:

Everything done but the examples of play (these should be wrapped-up by next week).

Counters, maps (now 3 maps), event cards printed (in China), the rest of the components will be done in the USA.

Sadly, the pre-orders numbers were modest, so not many copies were printed. IMHO it'll probably go out of print quite fast, order your copy before it's too late, not many Italian Front games were ever made besides the Avalon Hill classic.

I own these below, and that's probably it.

Anzio (1969)

Italian Campaign: Sicily to the Alps (1973)

The Italian Campaign: Med War (1993) - You needed three other S&T issues to play it.

Now the wait is almost over, more than 20 years later! meeple

They struck with the ferocity of a thunderstorm on the open prairie. Once they were a relatively feeble tribe, dwelling in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. Until, that is, they came into possession of horses. And so it was that seemingly out of nowhere, they emerged as an unstoppable force, the greatest light cavalry ever seen in the western hemisphere. They called themselves Numunuu, “the people.” Their Ute cousins called them Kumantsi, “someone who wants to fight me all the time.” The Spanish called them, “Comanche.”

Designer: Hermann Luttmann

Details: For 1-4 players

On the morning of August 16th, 1870 at the Gravelotte crossroads outside the fortress of Metz, Napoleon III, Emperor of the French Second Empire, turned over command of the Army of the Rhine to a reluctant Marshal Francois Achille Bazaine. The Army of the Rhine, the last intact field army and already the last hope for France during the two-week old Franco-Prussian War, was gathered around the protection of the Metz fortress complex. The Prussian I and II Armies were sweeping forward, hot on the heels of the retiring French.
