Block by Block - Modern War #48 (VASSAL) Paratrooper: Palembang & Primosole Bridge - World at War #72 (VASSAL) Spring Awakening - World at War #73 (VASSAL)
Block by Block is a two-player conflict simulation of the 1968 Battle of Huế. Players must balance the military difficulties imposed by the challenges of constrained urban warfare and unique terrain of the Huế Citadel, with the overriding considerations of each side’s respective political goals. Paratrooper is a two player game system simulating airborne operations from World War II to Korea. Each game in the system will include one or more scenarios, representing different airborne operations. This first game includes two scenarios. The first is Palembang: The Air Assault on Sumatra, February 1942, the Japanese airborne operation that attempted to gain control of the Dutch East India oilfields. In the second, Primosole Bridge: The Clash of Airborne, Sicily July 1943, the British 1st Airborne Brigade clash with the German 1st Fallschirmjaeger Division. Units represent airborne (parachute, glider) and ground forces at the company and platoon level. Spring Awakening is a two player wargame of Operation Fruhlingserwachen, the final major German offensive of World War II. The German plan was to launch a two-pronged attack to secure a defensive zone for the Lake Balaton oilfields in northern Hungary. The offensive failed in the face of Soviet resistance, and the ensuing Red Army offensive swept into Vienna. While historically, the situation was dismal for the Third Reich, the objective is for players to do better than their historical counterparts.

Rangers: Lead The Way - Strategy & Tactics #323 (VASSAL) Fight The Fall - Strategy & Tactics #324 (VASSAL) Italian-Ottoman War - Strategy & Tactics #325 (VASSAL)
Rangers: Lead The Way is a solitaire simulation of the US Army Ranger assault on the Pointe du Hoc on D-Day. The game challenges the player to do better than the actual Ranger attack up the cliffs that historic morning and additionally allows the player to fight the battle using the planned, rather than the actual, forces and landing beaches. The scenarios cover action through 0300 June 7, a span of almost 24 hours. Fight The Fall: Faesulae A.D. 405 & Tricamerum A.D. 533 is a two-player wargame system that simulates the battles that occurred during the era AD 376 to 560, roughly the time from when the Goths crossed the Danube to the Byzantine reconquest of the west. Italian-Ottoman War 1911-1912 is a two-player wargame using a variation on the system used in Windhoek (S&T #313) simulating the Italian invasion of the territories that became Libya in 1911 and the subsequent campaign that ended in the following year. The campaign saw the Italians seize the coastal towns, but the Ottomans, supported by local Arab and Bedouin tribes, fell back into the interior. The war came to an end via Italian naval attacks in the Aegean and elsewhere, with the Ottomans finally ceding Libya to Rome. This laid the foundation for the establishment of an Italian colony and had an obvious effect on the campaign in North Africa during World War II.

Mukden 1905 - Strategy & Tactics #326 (VASSAL) Suwalki Gap - Strategy & Tactics #327 (VASSAL) Vicksburg - Strategy & Tactics #328 (VASSAL)
Mukden 1905 is a two-player simulation (easily adapted for solitaire play) of the climactic struggle of the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-05. Both players have the opportunity to attack and defend, but the main burden of the offensive is on the Japanese player. Suwałki Gap is a two-player wargame based on hypothetical Russian attack on the Baltic States and Poland taking place sometime between 2023 and 2025. The sides and capabilities in this game are based on current procurement, recruitment, and basing plans to the extent of publicly available information. This game in particular examines the concept of the “Suwałki Gap,” a 65km section of the Polish-Lithuanian border between Belarus and Kaliningrad, and the potential of a Russian encirclement of the Baltic States by attacking over this route. Vicksburg: The Assault On Stockade Redan (May 19th & 22nd 1863) is a two-player tactical wargame simulating the two Union assaults upon the Stockade Redan defensive position situated at the northeastern corner of the Vicksburg perimeter. The Union player must assault and capture the imposing Stockade Redan earthworks that overlook Graveyard Road leading into Vicksburg (unquestionably the most defensible position encompassing the city). The Confederate player must defend the Redan against the two historical assaults that attempted to take it (both failed with heavy casualties to the Union).

Objective Munich - Modern War #49 (VASSAL) Putin Moves East - Modern War #50 (VASSAL) Objective Frankfurt - Modern War #51 (VASSAL)
Objective Munich is a two-player alternative history wargame intended to investigate the operational parameters that would have been in place during the first four days of fighting in that border area of West Germany had the Soviet Union decided to try to attack sometime in the early 1980s. It was during that timeframe the Warsaw Pact achieved a possible decisive “correlation of forces” between their militaries and those of the West. Putin Moves East is an operational-strategic level two player wargame covering a struggle for control between the Russian led Eurasian Union and a Coalition of opposing states, led by the People's Republic of China, to gain control of the Far East. Among other things, the game presumes a breakdown in Russian Chinese relations leading to open belligerency. Units represent operational task forces of corps or reinforced size; special forces; airpower; and cyberwar. Additionally, paramilitary forces play a significant role in the game rules. Objective Frankfurt is a two-player alternative history wargame intended to investigate the operational parameters that would have been in place during the first four days of fighting in that border area of West Germany had the Soviet Union decided to try to attack sometime in the early 1980s. It was during that time frame the Warsaw Pact achieved a possible decisive “correlation of forces” between their militaries and those of the West.

The Azeri launched an ethnic cleansing campaign. Faced with annihilation, the Armenians resisted and fought back.
