Since the creator of this classic solitaire wargame passed away not long ago, I figured that I better purchase the latest version (plus expansions) while I could. Dunno if there will be any more made once the stock is gone; rumor has it his widow is filling orders for what is left.

Just pulled it out of the shrink ~~>

Had lost my old copy back somewhere back in the late '90s. Didn't realize there was a new print run a few years ago, with an updated look and some small changes/additions. 8-)

It's an interesting and unusual solitaire game that mixes map plotting of your missions, squad & equipment selection, and a book that can only be compared to "choose your own adventure" paragraph-jumping decisions & events for small unit missions in enemy territory. The author was reportedly a Ranger, so .. yeah. ;)

This vid on it was in my YouTube recommended list, and tipped me off that it was still temporarily in print.

Dunno how many of you collect/read/play tabletop RPGs, but Bundle of Holding (DriveThruRPG's bundle sale site) has a
sale on Deadlands Reloaded bundles, which also includes the requisite Savage Worlds Deluxe RPG rules. The olde "Weird West" setting. :ugeek:

Starts at ~$21 for both sets of PDFs, including Marshal's Guide which is essential.

..along with an extra optional Deadlands bundle offer containing more background setting fluff:

Dungeon World Bundle Of Holding sale!

Superb tabletop RPG. Highly recommend reading it in regards to running a narrative sandbox campaign, and GM'ing in general. Even if you don't use this ruleset, which is pretty light & flexible, but you'll probably want to because the DW book is a very inspirational read. :ugeek:

First bundle only $5.95 and includes the great Perilous Wilds supplement among others.
