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."

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.

CJ Hakansson and Michael Gustavsson begin a series looking at their GMT Games' Fast Action Battle: Crusader, and the intriguing why's and how's of the conflict and how to simulate it. In some ways, almost a theoretical exercise. Or, "…as the Germans saw it, there was nothing but the fight itself."

"Don’t be Soft on Surrendered Tribes". Grant Kleinhenz, in The Players' Aid blog, continues his review of Hollandspiele's The Wars of Marcus Aurelius: Rome 170-180CE, a solitaire only game. The game has given Grant quite a learning curve, and he has lots of tips to offer, like avoiding what he considers the worst thing in the game, which is: "…a surrendered Tribe passing their [Oathbreaker] check and reentering the fight! It is very deflating."

Brett Holman summarizes his thoughts on several early 20th Century War Games including War Tactics or Can Britain Be Invaded? by Lowe and Carr. Holman calls the game the most intriguing of the group and supposes the game was a reflection of the anti-German war scare in Britain prior to World War I. The first war game with cardboard counters also features an asymmetrical map unlike most early war games like chess, Aviation and other Stratego type games that featured symmetrical maps.

David Lent, in the Centurion's Review blog, offers a retro review of SPI's Bundeswehr, a mid-70s Soviets-assault-in-Germany microgame. As a microgame enthusiast, David finds an enjoyable game, despite a few shortcomings. And the fun part?

"In Scenario 1 of Gulf Strike (VG, 1983), the Iranians are set to invade the Gulf Council States. With the US presence in the area growing more powerful each turn, Iran has to move very quickly to gain control over and consolidate its hold on the Straits of Hormuz. Time is of the essence and an Iranian player who does not move quickly will almost certainly lose the game."

Variant Rules for original SPI Games: The Battles of Bull Run

Russ Gifford has assembled a remarkable resource for SPI game enthusiasts. One of the web pages lists variants for SPI Games including The Battles of Bull Run. This particular variant, created by Albert A. Nofi, frequent contributor to Strategy & Tactics magazine, sets rules for multiple commander play (up to 4 commanders) for the Union player and up to 2 for the Confederates. This variant simulates the confusion among the Union commanders as all orders must be written and then interpreted by the commanders without any verbal discussion which can easily reduce the superior force advantage for the Union side.
