Last Chance to Pledge!

Drive on Stalingrad (deluxe edition)
This is a two-player, medium complexity, strategic-level simulation of two offensives: Operation Blue, the German attempt to seize Stalingrad and the Caucasus area of the Soviet Union in the summer of 1942; and Operation Uranus, the Soviet counter-offensive in late 1942. This new edition upgrades components with a new enlarged map on two mounted map boards, larger counters, along with new player aid cards and markers for enhanced play. Now is your chance to refight a critical campaign of World War II.

Coral Sea (deluxe edition)
A one-player (solitaire) wargame of the decisive aero-naval battle that took place between the USN and the IJN in May 1942. The Coral Sea design is based on the system used in World at War #2’s Solomons Campaign; however, there are significant differences owing to the different scale of the Coral Sea operation and the rules required for a solitaire design. The game system controls IJN forces via naval and air doctrine tables which initiate a range of strategies. The player controls various Allied forces, collectively called the USN, through an operational system based on US military staff organization which provides a wide range of actions that can be conducted on the game map. The player can react to various threats and launch counterattacks to exploit opportunities as they occur.
