“May you live in the most interesting of times.”-Old Akodo curse

 

In a forgotten corner of the Empire of Rokugan lies the small Naishou province. Unremarkable in virtually every way for as long as anyone can remember, the provincial governor of Naishou died under mysterious circumstances some time ago, and since then, things in the province have gotten interesting. Intrigue and treachery have become the order of the day, and even the most honorable of samurai find themselves placed in impossible positions, both by the plots of enemies hidden in the shadows as well as by the machinations of their own allies.

 

Secrets of the Empire: Naishou Province provides both Game Masters and players with new tools to enjoy the world of Rokugan with a level of detail that has never been attempted before. One entire province of the Empire has been completely detailed, although room has been left for individual groups to fill in the blanks with their own ideas and creations.

 

In this book you will find:

  • A map of the Naishou Province, taken from the records of the Imperial Cartographers of the Emperor!
  • All the information on Toshi no Naishou, the provincial capital and the center of its most intense and unforgiving intrigue!
  • The Lion Elite Spearmen School, a time-honored tradition of warfare previously only seen in other incarnations of the Legend of the Five Rings brand!

Tide of IronTide of Iron: Stalingrad Expansion

$79.99 SRP

“Nowhere else was there such bloody hand-to-hand combat. Nowhere else were bayonets and hand grenades used so widely as in Stalingrad…Our soldiers had only one idea. Stalin had ordered us not to retreat.”

–Vasily Chuikov, commander of the Soviet 62nd Army, Battle of Stalingrad

The Battle for Stalingrad commenced on September 13, 1942. Joseph Stalin ordered the Soviet 62nd Army to defend at all costs; Adolf Hitler believed one final assault by the 6th Army would overcome the  Soviet forces. Desperate fighting in the ruins was characterized by merciless close combat and no regard for civilian casualties. The heavy losses of personnel and equipment inflicted on the German army makes Stalingrad one of the strategically decisive battles of World War II.

The Stalingrad expansion adds on to Tide of Iron by allowing players to recreate the vicious house-to-house fighting between the Soviet and German armies in the city of Stalingrad. Players can also engage in tank duels in the streets and alleys of the city as well as launch surprise attacks from the sewers beneath.

Stalingrad includes a full set of Soviet infantry, the German StuG III E and Panzer III, the  Soviet T-34/76, and introducing the T-70 light tank.

This expansion includes:

-12 urban terrain  maps

-8 new scenarios (including 4 linked campaign scenarios)

-Strategy cards that let you

experience the brutal street fighting of the Battle of Stalingrad

 

Fight through the ashes of the ravaged city to claim Stalingrad as your own!

Hearts and mindsHearts and Minds: Vietnam 1965-1975

$75.00 SR

 

Hearts and Minds: Vietnam 1965-1975 is a card-driven game covering the American buildup of troops and arms in Southeast Asia as to our decision to begin troop withdrawal: 1965-1975. The game is quick (3-6 hours) and clean (map using area movement). Hearts and Minds uses most major events of the period, including proposed events such as the Macnamara Line which was never actually built. Although nominally a combat game, the mechanisms actually revolve around both sides occupying South Vietnamese provinces for propaganda purposes. The heart of the game is political influence. There is little doubt that the Allied player will eventually withdraw his American boys from the quagmire, but the question is, how quickly and in what numbers?

 

Set includes: 80 cards, tokens, larger mounted 22 x 34” game board, 2 sheets of large 7/8″ counters, playbook and rules.
