47 - Arctic Disaster

"One of the most melancholy naval episodes in the whole of the war."

-- Winston Churchill, British Prime Minister

Arctic Disaster is a simulation of one of the most bitter naval convoy runs of the Second World War: PQ-17. Designer Mark Stille (North Wind Rain, Imperial Sunset, Hungarian Nightmare and Wintergewitter) brings us his fresh insights on why even today this grim naval battle fight continues to raise unanswered questions on the command and responsibility of both sides.

49 - A Gate of Hell

“The defenses of Charleston are like a porcupine hide with the quills turned outside in.”

-- USN Rear Admiral Samuel F. Du Pont

54 - Monty’s D-Day

54 - Monty’s D-Day

Monty’s D-Day was first published in 1985 and well received. Now, four decades later, designer John Prados has smoothed and polished the MDD system, and added solo rules. In the meanwhile, ATO published Bradley's D-Day, his companion game to Monty, as Campaign Study #3. Of course, everyone would like Monty’s D-Day to get a similar upgrade. The wild blue yonder hope would be that the two games could combine.

Now it's happening.
