'65 Squad Level Combat in Vietnam. On Kickstarter!
Tiny Battle Publishing, has released two new titles. Both are in stock and ready to ship.

Into the Trenches: Doughboys is the first release. Designed by John Gorkowski, this series enables players to game historically accurate simulations of tactical operations from the Great War. In the Trenches (ITT) challenges players to move and fight with company-level formations made of separate platoon-sized units during five minute, impulsed-based turns. The historically accurate maps are scaled to 100 yards per hex. This approach recreates WWI command and control problems and inspire historically accurate play without forcing decisions.

Our second Base Set, Into the Trenches: Doughboys, is a grab-bag of great all-new scenarios. First, the green Americans find themselves in a desperate battle with German stormtroopers. Then, the US 327th Tank Battalion rolls into action at Bois de Sonnard. And finally, because you can never have enough tanks, Mark H. Walker gives us an alt-history engagement to round out the set. Click here to get your copy for only $21.99 ($11.99 for the PNP version).

Another brilliant Tom Russell design... Savage's Station is the smallest of the games in the Blood Before Richmond series, and it's all about evaluating risk and pressing your luck. The Confederate Player can bring in extra units, such as the Land Merrimack (a rail mounted naval gun) but at the cost of precious VP. Will he have enough time to press a successful attack, or will the game be called on account of rain?

A modified 2d6 die roll determines which Confederate Divisions activate on a given turn. Divisions that didn't pull their weight historically are less likely to show up than those that did most of the fighting. It's a simple, clever, and elegant way to recreate the difficulties Lee had during the Seven Days.

Flipping a counter over when you take a hit doesn't capture the feel of bloody infantry collisions or the horrifying impact of artillery fire. The unique "stack of steps" system employed in Savage's Station uses Step Counters stacked beneath the ID Counter to account for brutal attrition and devastating wipe-outs.
