Hey folks, I have been looking for a fast playing war game that I can play solo like HE but with a WWII theme, any ideas?

Cheers

Kevin

Malta Besieged and We Must Tell the Emperor are both WWII games from the same series as HE (the States of Siege series). They're no longer in print though, so you'll need to find them second hand if you want them.

We must tell the Emperor and Malta Besieged are closest to HE in terms
of design and game mechanic (SoS). But DVG's Field Commander Rommel is
also a fairly fast-playing and challenging solo game on a WW2 subject.

How about a game like HE but also for two players? I know you can combine Ottoman Sunset with this but looking also for a competitive ww1 game, thanks.

Be on the lookout for "The World Will Hold Its Breath", which is (sort of) a Europe-wide WWII States of Siege game. Though much more detailed, I am told; the game has been in design/development for years.
