Air Assault Task Force ($34.95): Modern day real-time simulation
of airmobile operations spanning four decades of modern warfare,
highlighting three pivotal battles.

The Falklands War: 1982 ($34.95): ProSIM does historical. Not
many games have tackled the Falklands War. Focusing on the ground

M.U.L.E., this is a non-violent game of space economics playable

single set of rules. This is pen & paper tabletop gaming at its
War Plan Pacific ($33.95): It’s six P.M. and you just got
home from work. You could veg out and watch some TV or you could
refight the entire war in the Pacific and still be in bed before
Dave’s Top Ten list. Impossible, you say? War Plan Pacific is
the grand strategy title you’ve been waiting for,
historically accurate and yet playable with broad strokes in a
winSPWW2 and winSPMBT Enhanced Editions ($34.95 each): Hexes and
tanks! This is old school wargaming at its finest, featuring
