The Korean War is one of those almost forgotten American wars. With nukes a possibility this war was an infantry man's nightmare.

This Geek list is to include any wargames on the 1950-54 conflict.

P.S. the picture below is my father's Korean era picture.

SPI's first entry into the Korean conflict. A simple game but seems to break down when the Chinese enter the game.

Victory Games was manned by prior SPI employees and did not have the time constraints. This made for better wargames of a high quality.

As you can see from the map, this game not only allow you to use nuke, it actually let you do what MacArthur wanted to do -- invade China.

How we praise this as a great battle. It was more of a great mistake.
