Confronting Chaos: a New Concept for Information Advantage

Spotlight Article Graphic

"...although American teams lose wargames all the time, this is, in fact, a very big deal." Chris Dougherty explains his concerns about how three decades of Pentagon war planning have "…assumed U.S. forces could achieve information dominance in a great-power conflict, akin to what the American military attained during the 1991 Gulf War. That assumption is fatally flawed."

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)

Warfighter WWII - Game Review

"It may come as a bit of a shock for those unfamiliar with the series, that all of the action in "Warfighter WWII" takes place across a simple tableau of cards. At first this may seem a bit odd, leaving you to wonder how this can be considered a tactical game. Can you have true tactical play across a row of cards? Believe it or not, it works quite well..."
