Slingshot 336

Spotlight Article Graphic

"...the idiosyncracies of Slingshot are the idiosyncracies of the membership...". Prufrock explains his satisfaction that Slingshot, the journal of the Society of Ancients, just keeps on chugging. Despite the onslaught of a number of recent trends, "…Slingshot still holds true to its original amateur, collective ideals. Now into its 336th edition, long may that continue!"

Battle for Russia - Game Turn Restrictions Summary

I'm finally getting to play this game, and am looking forward to it. There are a decent amount of "special rules" and restrictions that apply to either the Axis or Soviet player, depending on which turn it is. Rather than flipping back and forth in the rule book, I made a quick & dirty cheat sheet for myself which I have been using, and thought I'd share it. If anyone sees anything that's incorrect, please let me know via email at mark at grognard dot com. (updated 4/11/2020 to include rules for ignoring Rivers - Axis only on Turn 1; both sides on Turn 2)

French "Low Density" Blues in Ici c'est la France!

Brief strategy article written by Mark D. that explains the concept of "Troop Density" and examines how that level can have a big impact on French and FLN play in the early stages of the game. Ici c'est la France! was designed by Kim Kanger and published by Legion Wargames in 2009. Outstanding game!
