Gulf 1990




Steam

ABOUT THIS CONTENT


Gulf 1990 describes the initial assault of Saddam Hussein's Iraqi troops against Kuwait, and the following options that follow.

Irak may play for time, or else invade immediately after Saudi Arabia.

The Coalition must absolutely repulse the Iraqi onslaught and remove their forces from occupied Kuwait.

- The Coalition must strive to bring as many reinforcements as possible in the minimum of time to hold against and then repulse the Irakian army.

The threat to use chemical weapons is permanent...and dangerous for both sides.

Mexico 1519




Steam

ABOUT THIS CONTENT


In April 1519, Hernán Cortés lands on the Gulf of Mexico coastline at the head of a Spanish expedition from Cuba, where he establishes the city of Villa Rica de Vera Cruz. Local population welcome is warm, as they see him as the envoy of the god Quetzalcóatl (the famous feathered serpent). Emperor Moctezuma had many dreams that forecasted the arrival of the divine envoy, so he is benevolent and fearless, sending ambassadors with gold presents, which only manage to excite the envy of the conquistador.

This is the beginning of the adventure!

This scenario lasts 14 turns, each of 2 months between April 1519 and August 1521. It opposes the Conquistadors led by Cortés to the peoples and warriors of the Aztec Empire. This epic conquest is played both on the map for the strategic and military aspects on the one hand, and through the play of cards (2 drawn each turn per side) for the political, diplomatic and religious aspects on the other hand.

Indeed, the two sides fight for different reasons and on different ways: war of conquest and annihilation for the Spaniards, a religious war aiming at taking prisoners for the Aztecs.

Can the Conquistadors conquer such a powerful empire with so few men?

Release of Gandamak 1842
2 JUN @ 10:08AM   - STRATEGIAE

The May release (ok, we know, it's June and we are late!) is showing up tomorrow, taking the players to the First Anglo-Afghan war, in 1842.

The troops of the British East India Company will attempt to install by force a ruler favorable to their interests in Afghanistan, while the local Afghan Tribes will resist the move.

Will the attempt end in disaster, like historically? Or will YOU, as head of the British expedition, succeed in your mission?

It's now yours to discover in another war in Afghanistan!
