Rules…

America's Olde West: 28mm Skirmish Actions & Gunfights – 1836 to 1890

America's Olde West: 28mm Skirmish Actions & Gunfights – 1836 to 1890 Time to saddle up, pardner, and hit the trail to action in the Olde West, from the Comanche Wars (1836) to Wounded Knee (1890). This skirmish ruleset, an offshoot of the WWII Skirmish Action rules, certainly covers the traditional Wild West (post-ACW to 1880s), but the Indian Wars ranged over a far wider period and so does America's Olde West. Initiative is by faction (gang, squad, war party, posse, etc.), which usually numbers between four and ten, and each figure gets one action – Move, Shoot, Take Cover, and so on. Then each figure dices against its quality number for a second action… But, certain factions receive a second action without needing a roll. That offers subtle differences between factions.

All the popular weapons, such as Winchester '73 and Colt Peacemaker, are included in the weapon charts. Firing is a quick six-sided attacker die versus six-sided defender die, with the difference determining the result. Includes six pages of army lists: cowboys, U.S. cavalry, native Americans, gunfighters, outlaws, and factions, scenarios, and quick reference cards. Plays well on small kitchen tables. $29.00 USD

Strategy & Tactics #311: Pacific Submarine

Strategy & Tactics #311: Pacific Submarine In this solitaire game, you, the player, represent the skipper of a U.S. submarine. Your task is to conduct patrols against the Japanese by supporting the U.S. fleets in combat, ambushing Japanese warships, carrying out covert operations in Japanese territory, and sinking merchant ships and tankers. You can conduct one of several individual patrols, or fight the whole campaign, with a goal of promotion to Captain-if you survive. Patrols are assigned by a die roll against a possible set of missions, but the set changes through the course of the war. In each, you move your boat across the situation map, that covers a quarter of the map, at 375 miles per hex, to the chosen island, ports, or shipping route. Some of the counters represent Japanese naval forces and installations, which you either seek or avoid depending on your mission. Each action covers one to three hexes and may result in enemy contact. Components: One 22 x 34-inch map, 280 counters, and magazine. $40.00 USD
