Little known fact. If you buy S & T 251 Cobra 3rd edition and
S & T 239 Winged Horses you will have all the counters, rules , and OOB to play the Vietnam War from 1965 - 1973.

A playable 1 map game of medium size, with hexes , no damn cards, with easy to read NATO symbols !

Why DG never really advertised this I will never know.

DG doesn't seem as willing to make boxed games out of their successful magazine games as SPI was. I think Red Dragon Rising (is that the name of the Bruce Costello game?) is the first attempt for them ever. I would make Winged Horse number 2.

Lewis you and I both know a medium sized playable hex Vietnam game would kill. It is the war that I grew up dealing with ( I am 43 ) even though I was never there.

Put this in a box!!

Pass the word Lewis!

Totally agree.
This is indeed a jewel. The game scale, the parts, the system...

The supplement that comes with #251 does add a lot, although it takes a bit to figure out what to do with the initial deployment.
The additional rules have to be "cut&pasted" into the small campaign ones, I wish that DG could revise the thing and publish a new ruleset.

Also, it would be awesome if they somehow could add solitaire options (not easy to find players for this game!). I've tried some home made ones to a small extent and they work, but it would be great if they were official.

Bump Bump, WH rulez!

The question should be where. I think they could learn what LPS do with Against the Odd in that some colorful ads cover the previous ATO magazine games. It seems that DG doesn't have such a practice but only on their other boxed games. It also comes into question that if there are too many advertising pages, the grognards would complain!

Lawrence, I think Salim was using the word "advertise" in a figurative sense. As in "why don't they ever tell anybody"?

Thats it exactly. Say hey look what we have ! But they never even posted it on their web site. It was total silence.

How can anyone buy it if no one knows it is being sold.
