Against the Odds Article Index

This is an index to articles appearing in Against the Odds: A Journal of History and Simulation.

  • Regular columns (On Guards, And the Data Shows, Simulation Corner, etc.) are shown in italics.
  • Feature article is shown in bold
  • Authors who are in the BGG database are linked.
  • If the article topic or coverage is not entirely clear from the printed title and/or subtitle, a brief explanation [in brackets] may be added.
  • Variant cards and addenda counters are added as a separate italicized list at the end of each issue's entry.
  • A weblink to the appropriate ATO page is included after each issue title.

As each issue contains the general "A Whiff of Grapeshot" (editor's intro) and "Order of Appearance" (developer's docket), these are left out of this list.
Main game rules are not noted (as they are assumed to be included) but any additional rulesets are.
The "subscriber-bonus only" items listed were only available for subscribers receiving that issue when it was first released. Anyone ordering that back issue today will not receive those extras in their copy.
Pocket Battle Games that may have been included in a particular issue are not listed.
