Henry V Four more battles in one box (Agincourt, Patay, Formigny, Castillon) from the Hundred Years War, starting with Henry V at Agincourt and onto Joan of Arc. Medium complexity with a high suitability for solitaire play. Price: £11.95 each.
Rebels and Redcoats (Volumes 1 and 2) Set in the American War of Independence. There are two sets (either stands alone). Volume I covers Bunker Hill, Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth. Volume II covers another eight battles in the Saratoga and Southern Campaigns. Complexity: Low. Price: £23.95 for each volume.
Thirty Years War Four battles in one box (Lutzen, Nordlingen, Rocroi & White Mountain). All share the same basic rules, with a few special rules for each scenario. Of all the "quadrigames" series this one works best. Hardcore wargamers call this level of game "one brain cell" games, but they have a scope and playability you don't get from games with more detail, depth and historical accuracy. Complexity: Low. Price: £28.75.
of the North A more complex
treatment of the Thirty Years War period, this time with Breitenfeld and Lutzen (again) with
bigger maps and at least twice as many counters. At this level you're dealing
with combined arms of musketeers and pikemen with distinct rules for fire and
shock action. Complexity: High. Price:
Blood & Iron Blood and Iron follows the period of 1848 and 1871 and Bismarck's unification of Germany. Four separate scenarios are covered: 1859 Franco Austrian war, 1864 German Danish war, 1866 Seven Weeks' war and the 1870 Franco Prussian war. Complexity is medium, and the game isn't particularly well suited to solitaire play. Playing time 1-6 hours. Price: £23.50.
are part of a series of wargames, all produced by Avalon Hill and carrying the
stamp of the Smithsonian Institution (the American national museum - though it's
actually rather more than just a museum) so they're stuffed with well-presented
and educational background information as well as being sensible and playable
games. The titles we stock are D-Day and Guadalcanal (naval campaign). Some include rules for solitaire play, and all
include basic rules and a range of optional rules to build up a more complex
game if you prefer. Complexity: Low.
Price: £19.95 D-Day, £27.95 Guadalcanal.
