Saigon 75 is an accessible and swift strategic game, simulating the fratricidal struggle between North and South Vietnam from Summer 1973 to Spring 1975. Everything is contained within a few pages of rules and 1 hour of strategy, with pressure at every moment. The game portrays the differences between North Vietnamese divisions and the Rangers/Marines/Parachutists and other units of the South Vietnamese. Air power and desertion are also featured, with the whole thing being completed by event cards that give the game great replayability. An ingenious mix that provides a game on tenterhooks right up to the last turn! Which side will control Saigon?







Players 1-2.
Play Time 60 min.

Pledges: One copy of the game ($56) or one copy of the game + one A1 playmat ($95).
Languages: English and French.
Rules: here (this is a draft, the rulebooks may sligthly change).

Deliver Expected: May 2020.
Designers: Jean Philippe Barcus and Pascal Toupy.
Artist: Tania Sanchez-Fortun.
Graphic artists: Christophe Sancy, Gwennolé Loreal and Julia Brétéché.

Publisher: Nuts! Publishing.

We have read your feedback about the octagons after we published news no. 3. We like the octagons and think they will go well with the game, but we like to interact with our backers. After a lot of discussion, we have decided to organize a survey in order to decide on the fifth stretch goal.

I appreciate that you're trying hard to offer more enhancing Stretch Goals, but I would really prefer the original Air Support marker on the disc rather than a cut-out airplane shape.

The original is easier to see and would be easier to handle as a game piece. Thanks for reading my input, it's probably a minority view but I'd love to see an option for this piece.

Thank you for your feedback. The quality of the new Air Support marker will be checked (we want to have a good component wich is durable and easy to handle) before the production of the game.

The campaign is over, it was amazing. Thanks to your support the game is funded and we will be able to add new components (stretch goals) to the game box. These 14 days were incredible, it was an extraordinary experience, thank you so much!

We have published an update to share the link to the Late Pledge. Don't worry, for the last stretch goals, we will also add the numbers of new likes (already 150) and the amount of money collected during the Late Pledge (between now and December 10th).
