Battle for Germany Deluxe Edition Bleeding Kansas
Hitler's Third Reich was clearly beaten in early December 1944 as Anglo-American and Soviet armies reached Germany's borders to the east and west. The only questions remaining were how long it would take to finish the job, and how many more would die in the process. Hitler gambled his last reserves in an offensive through the Ardennes, hoping to split the Anglo-Americans and force them to the negotiating table. It failed, and a month later the final Allied offensives began. The overwhelmed German army gave ground grudgingly and even launched local counteroffensives but could not stop the tide as the Allies picked up speed. Allied leaders strove to finish the war, all the while looking toward the shape of postwar Europe. The race was on for the final prize: Berlin.

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.

Cobra: The Normandy Campaign D-Day Quad
From D-Day to the break-out, Cobra allows you to play out the Allied invasion of Normandy and the break-out from the peninsula in one complete game. One player or team commands the Allies, the other the Germans. Victory depends on the Allied breakout and relative casualties. Command regiments, brigades, divisions, corps headquarters and special units. Valuable motorized and mechanized units gain additional movement and can overrun enemy units while moving. Combat rewards careful planning; getting headquarters and supplies to the right place at the right time enhances your combat power.
The D-Day Quad uses the Fire & Movement system, designed to highlight the ability of motorized units to mass quickly for breakthrough and exploitation. Support fire, representing weapons ranging from mortars through cannon and light ground attack aircraft to heavy bombers, provides the extra punch to overwhelm a defense or shatter an attack. Winning the battle is a matter of maneuver, firepower, and asset management.
