Bleeding Kansas Desert Fox Deluxe Lucky Forward: The Lorraine Campaign
Bleeding Kansas is a two-player game portraying the politics and violence in pre-statehood Kansas. The Kansas-Nebraska Act of 1854 gave new territories the right to “popular sovereignty,” allowing residents to choose whether or not to allow slavery. Within months the stream of settlers to Kansas was swelled by parties of sponsored abolitionists and pro-slavers, all more intent on fighting one another than building a new state. Bushwhacks and gun battles punctuated maneuvers by rival legislatures elected through massive fraud. It would not die out entirely until statehood in January 1861. The new state’s senators swung the US Senate irretrievably against the South, ensuring the continuation of secession started by the election of Abraham Lincoln.
Desert Fox Deluxe covers the campaign from the Italian invasion of Egypt in 1940 to the final clearance of Africa in 1943. One player commands the Axis forces, the other the Allies. The Axis seeks to maintain a presence in North Africa while the Allies fight to eliminate it. Six maps cover the battlefields from Algiers to Alexandria at 10 miles to the hex. Each turn represents one month of real time. Combat units are regiments or brigades, with some divisions and specialist battalions.
Lucky Forward: The Lorraine Campaign (6 Sep-13 Dec 1944). This GOSS series game would present Third Army’s Fall 1944 offensive to just before the Germans launch their Ardennes Offensive further north. The battles of Metz, Fort Driant, and the German counteroffensive attempt against Patton using the new German Panzer Brigades would all be here. Smaller scenarios would allow the players to game smaller periods of time in each of the four months making up the campaign. The game would mate to Wacht am Rhein (2012), allowing more options for both simulations. Four maps, 16 counter sheets.
