Pocket battle Games, so far....

Spotlight Article Graphic

Looking for small games "...complicated enough not to be able to figure out the ultimate 'win all the time' game plan strategy within a few plays..."? Angry Bunny offers some thoughts on the pocket battle games offered by LPS and High Flying Dice Games over the years. Small perhaps, yet, in the view of designer Paul Rohrbaugh, "…it is harder to design these pocket games to be as true to history and fun, than it is to design a larger game."

A well done Video Review on the Obscure Subject of the German Intervention in the Finnish CIvil War

A few months after Finland made its Declaration of Independence from Russian rule in December of 1917, a civil war broke out between Finnish Reds and Whites. The paramilitary Red Guards formed by the worker class took control of Helsinki on the 27th of January 1918. The Senate fled from Helsinki and declared the White guards as their official troops. U & P Games produced this very interesting video review of Helsinki 1918 , a wargame on this battle This review is on the "longer side" as it's design is very rich and consists of a regular tactical game and a counter-insurgency sub-game.

Dreadnoughts in Flames - Naval Rules for Fatal Alliances (PDF)

Dreadnoughts in Flames (DiF) is a set of house rules used to magnify and better model the role of the navies in WWI when using the rules for Fatal Alliances III (FA) (Compass Games) which is itself a modification of World in Flames (ADG). It is a Print and Play expansion that requires FA and also a Vassal Module which is an expansion of the FA III module.

Design Note: Essentially, the rules use every naval ship active in WWI that is larger than a Gun boat. Destroyers and other light ships are represented as flotillas as are Mine Layers. Mine Sweepers and Escorts are abstracted with the Destroyer Flotillas. Smaller ships like Gun Boats, Sloops, Corvettes and boats are abstracted in Port Defense rules and Foreign Stations. Some coastal defense ships are added but as yet I have not added Monitors, Auxiliaries and the like. Use FA units counters for Subs, Seaplane Tenders and carriers. There are >700 new units in the expansion. There are no new rules but nine (9) optional rules. Shared by Mark Hodgkinson.
