Storm Over Asia

Storm Over Asia is both a companion game to GMT's A World at War and conditions. Starting in 1935, Japan, China, Britain, and Russia prepare for war, without being sure of just what war is coming. Japan must balance its expansion in china, an impending confrontation with the United States and Russia, and the impact of the Pacific theater in a global war. China, Britain and Russian musy try to resist immediate Japanese expansion, while at the same time laying the ground work for the successful prosecution of war in the Pacific. These short-term and long-term goals will often be in conflict, and misjudgments in either direction may have dire consequences.Storm Over Asia lets the players explore a wide range of options, as compared to A World at War. Japan may concentrate on its naval buildup, prioritize research, or emphasize diplomacy in China and Southeast Asia. It may try to favourably resolve the "China Incident" by crippling China, or seek to avoid the Chinese morass altogether, at the risk of China becoming too strong. Players may therefore explore the implications of an expanded Japanese carrier force, Japanese advanced submarines or heavier Japanese armour, as well as the cost to a Japan of these and other historical alternatives. Chinese and British research and diplomacy will also have important effects of Allied capabilities in A World at War, while Communist China may prove to be a greater obstacle to Japanese ambitions in China than the Nationalist governemnt.Challenging as Storm Over Asia is when played alone, when combined with the European pre-war game Gathering Storm and continued into A World at War, players are guaranteed that no two wars will be alike. Many of the differences will be nuanced and hard to assess, but some will be very significant and will change the course of the war in the Pacific theater. Almost all will be double-edged, with the advantage gained by one side coming at a cost, or giving a compensating advantage to the other side. The untimate possibility is an all-out Russo-Japanese war, with the European Axis fighting a parallel war against the Western Allies and the Nazi-Soviet Pact continuing, and no war between Japan and the United States.Despite the vicissitudes of the random events and warlord draws that occur every turn, as well as other random factors and the annoying strategies of your opponent, when you play Storm Over Asia you may be assured of one thing - you will get a chance to find out how history might have changed had YOU been in command!While the major powers strive to improve their military, economic, political, diplomatic and research situations for the coming war, and try to ensure that that war is the war they want to fight, they must contend not only with their opponents, but with random events which can create opportunities and shatter hopes - sometimes both at once. Just as Storm Over Asia ensures that no two A World at War games are ever alike, even at the start, the random events ensure that every Storm Over Asia game is different.Game contents:Three countersheetsOne 22"x30" mapboard80 Random Event Cards9 Warlord Cards4 Russian Purge CardsRulebookBattle ManualTransition RulebookScenario Cards

1989: Dawn of Freedom

As the year 1989 begins, the Cold War between the United States, the Soviet Union and their allies is drawing to a close. for over forty years the continent of Europe has been divided by an "Iron Curtain" that separates the East from the West.In 1986 Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev launches a new program of reforms with glasnost (openness) and in 1988 perestroika (restructuring), in an attempt to revitalize the Soviet Union. Gorbachev has also announced unilateral arms reductions that are wildly popular in the West. Possibly the long "twilight struggle" between these two international Superpowers is finally coming to an end.However, these Soviet changes are not popular with everyone. For the Communist governments of Eastern Europe the force of Soviet arms had always protected them from the rebellions of their own people. Now the Eastern European Communists are on their own.In 1989: Dawn of Freedom, players will recreate the momentous revolutions of 1989, using a system similar to the award winning boardgame Twlight Struggle by GMT Games.One player is the Communist. He will need to use a wise combination of crackdowns, concessions and reforms to try to hold on to power. The other player is the Democrat. He will try to use the leadership of the intellectuals and the street protests of the students to generate a critical mass of opposition to the regimes in order to launch a revolution. Both players will try to swing the workers to their side. At the start of the game, the Communist player holds power in each country. The Democrat player will attempt to topple the Communist from power through resolution of scoring cards. The longer the Communist retains power in a country, the more points he scores. The player most successful in advancing his cause wins the game.Contents:Two Counter Sheets22x34 inch Mapsheet110 Strategy Cards52 Power CardsHistorical Background BookletRules BookletTwo Player Aid cardsTwo six-sided dice

Aeon's End: Outcasts

There are stories outside of New Gravehold. Far to the south, an old mage has found a new home, and a new way of life without Brama's restrictive rules. But when a spectre from her psst reappears, she will have to venture into the Void itself to find her salvation. Can the light of redemption be found in even the most twisted souls?Aeon's End: Outcasts is a cooperative deck building game where your deck is never shuffled, a variable player order simulates the chaos of battle, and deck management makes all your decisions meaningful. Every game you will face a different nemesis, each with a unique set of abilities requiring a different strategy to be defeated.Aeon's End: Outcasts adds another narrative based expedition, which builds on the existing Aeon's End lore. It also includes all new mages and nemeses, as well as gems, relics, and spells that are compatible with all existing content. Aeon's End: Outcasts is a standalone expansion that can be mixed and matched with the other standalone games.
