THUNDERBOLT-APACHE LEADER (TAL) - IS UP FOR PRE-ORDER!
We are very proud to return this classic game to the world! Like the rugged A-10 Thunderbolt and AH-64 Apache showcased in the game, TAL keeps coming back for more!
We have maintained the original design while adding extra features. TAL builds on the Air Leader game system used in Hornet Leader and Phantom Leader, and then takes it down low into the weeds of the modern battlefield. Hornets and Phantoms get to fly high. Thunderbolts and Apaches fly low. Really low. In TAL you’ll find yourself zooming through canyons and popping over ridge lines to blast unsuspecting enemy tanks, troops, APCs, and more.
You can now take every pilot from Newbie through Ace!
In addition to the aircraft appearing in the original game, we’ve added all the newest weapon systems including the A-10C, AH-64D Longbow, MQ-1 and RQ-1 Predator UAVs. Unlike the original game, you can now select AV-8B Harriers and AH-1 Cobras as part of your squadron!
To support all this mud-moving aviation hardware, we’ve added 55 cards and a second counter sheet!
BLITZKRIEG IN THE WEST - IS UP FOR PRE-ORDER!
Our first monster hex and counter game!
We are very pleased to be working with game designer Joseph Miranda, a legend in the war gaming community.
Blitzkrieg focuses on the German invasion of France in 1940 on the division and regiment scale. Special tactics cards give each player an additional level of strategy options and choices.
The game includes a huge 34” x 22” and 528 counters!
FRONTLINE - GUADALCANAL - IS UP FOR PRE-ORDER!
The second game in the Frontline series takes the war to the Pacific!
Play as either US Marines or Imperial Japanese Infantry in this epic struggle for the vital island of Guadalcanal.
As with Frontline D-Day, you command squads of soldiers and vehicles in a very tactical combat environment. Each card represents one soldier or one vehicle and each fire phase allows you to select from several fire modes that take into account firepower and ammunition usage.
FIELD COMMANDER NAPOLEON
Updated Slideshow of unit counters!
I’ve been rescaling some of the campaigns to add greater unit detail. This will increase the number of counter sheets from 4 to 5. The pre-order price will remain the same.
We will be sending Napoleon to the printer in about a month! If you’ve pre-ordered and would like your name on the box, email the following permission to: dan(at)dvg(dot)com
“I (INSERT YOUR NAME) give permission to DVG to print my name on the Field Commander Napoleon boxes.”
If you have ordered multiple copies, you can send in one name for each copy.
RETAIL STORE OUTREACH
I would like to place our games in more retail stores. In talking with some folks in the industry, it turns out that our games are only in about 1/3 of the stores that carry military/history games. The good news is, when a store carries our games, they sell just as well, or better than, the games published by similar companies.
Here's where we need help. If you local store doesn't carry our games. Please ask them to contact me. I will be happy to send them a demo copy of one of our games for their store.
I've found that once a store owner actually gets to look through one of our games, they are likely to start placing orders.
If the store owner asks, all the major distributors carry our games.
DVG GAME REVIEWS…
Be sure to taste your words, before you spit them out.
If you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride.
Thanks for the update Dan! Looking forward to several of your new games. Any updates you can share on U-Boat Leader?
I am hoping for it to be the game we send to print after Napoleon. A couple dozen more pre-orders would be really handy.
I Think i pass on Blitzkrieg, but Thunderbolt-Apache Leader and Guadalcanal are preordered
Dan - thanks for posting this - it reminded me to place my pre-order for the Modern Naval Battles expansion! Also, thank you for adding the PayPal option, which is my preferred method of on-line payment. Pre-order placed!!!
