(NEW) 2017 Annual - Six Days of War

(NEW) 2017 Annual - Six Days of War

“Israel wants to make it clear to the government of Egypt that it has no aggressive intentions whatsoever against any Arab state at all.”

-- Israel’s Prime Minister Levi Eshkol (May 15th, 1967)

Today, it is hard to fathom the concept of a war—a serious, shooting war with countries committing ALL their resources—starting and coming to a very decisive finish in just six days!

2016 Annual - Confederate Rails

2016 Annual - Confederate Rails

“We have stretched out lines of railroads from the seaboard to the mountains; dug down the hills for them, and filled up the valleys for them, at a ruinous cost.”

-- Alexander H. Stephens (Vice President, CSA)

Can the Confederacy's railroad companies battle Union military advances, their own government's decrees (and neglects), the rapidly inflating and worthless money, plus wear and tear on their irreplaceable equipment, to stave off hunger and defeat among the South's armies?

2015 Annual - Four Roads to Paris

2015 Annual - Four Roads to Paris

“I shall maneuver the French right out of their Maginot line without firing a shot!”

-- Adolf Hitler, 1940

But, why, exactly did France fall? The four designers featured in this issue have drawn some very different and startling conclusions about what really happened....

2014 Annual - Set Europe Ablaze

2014 Annual - Set Europe Ablaze

“Special Operations Executive were amateur, dangerous and bogus.”

-- Head of the SIS, Sir Stewart Menzies

There were turf wars from the start. The SIS did not want SOE disrupting their agents' intelligence-gathering operations by blowing up bridges and factories. Other powerful groups, like Bomber Command, also despised SOE and resented loaning them aircraft for 'unethical' clandestine missions. (Their plan to win the war called for bombing Germany to its knees.) But with Churchill as their guardian angel the SOE survived and fought on for victory....

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

2013 Annual - La Bataille de Vauchamps

“Come. We must repeat the campaign in Italy.”

-- Emperor Napoleon to Berthier, 1814

For the casual reader who looks into the “100 Days” and the Waterloo Campaign, one of the early questions is, “Who (the heck) is Grouchy?” Followed up by wondering why (on earth) Napoleon would give this guy a third of his army and depend on him to keep Blücher’s Prussians far from Wellington....

2012 Annual - Forlorn Hopes

2012 Annual - Forlorn Hopes

“The fruits of victory are tumbling into our mouths too quickly.”

-- Emperor Hirohito

Most Americans can easily name Pearl Harbor as the most successful Japanese attack of the war. But what campaign truly represents the "high tide" of the Japanese Empire?....

2011 Annual - Beyond Waterloo

2011 Annual - Beyond Waterloo

"Damn the fellow, he is a mere pounder after all!"

-- Wellington's opening assessment of Napoleon

Most “Waterloo games” lock players into the circumstances of that famous battle, or if they give some small leeway, they still all suffer from a similar narrow focus. You will have the Armée du Nord face some combination of Blucher and Wellington and everyone just does the best they can. But any reading of the period shows a flurry of activity—key, historical events—which no one has bothered putting into game form. Until now...

2010 Annual - Four Roads To Moscow

2010 Annual - Four Roads To Moscow

“When Barbarossa begins, the world will hold its breath!”

-- Adolf Hitler, 1941

Why did Barbarossa fail? Now, four veteran designers combine in a unique offering from Against the Odds. The ATO Annual edition for 2010 includes four different games, but all on the same topic, Operation Barbarossa. Each designer looks hard at the reasons behind Barbarossa's successes and failures.
