Wilmington, NC, 10 December 2012

Shrapnel Games wants to bring you twenty-two days of Christmas that includes Sherman Tanks, radar screens, wooden ships, and dungeons galore! That's right, our sale runs from December 10th through December 31st!

Every game currently available at Shrapnel Games is on sale, from grand strategy to role-playing to the serious military simulations of ProSim. Buy for yourself or for someone else. Enjoy the very best in independent strategy gaming. Check out just what you can own this holiday season...

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

Air Command 3.0 ($31.95): Proving that not every strategy game has to be one of conquest, Air Command 3.0 is a cunning game of air traffic. Featuring real world airports and all the problems faced by actual air traffic controllers, this is a game playable in quick bites and featuring metric tons of replayability.

ATF: Armored Task Force ($22.95): Bring forth the heavy metal thunder and smite your enemies using 120mm bolts. A ProSIM simulation focusing on land combat around the world. A great survey sim and as with all ProSIM titles features real world maps, realistic results, and full control of how one plays.

Battle Group Commander ($10.95): A microgame featuring all the expansive details you come to expect from a ProSIM product but at a tiny price. Featuring a mini-campaign and multiplayer capabilities, lead the fight against the Russians using your Brits. Fully compatible with other ProSIM titles and a great introduction to their world.

BCT Commander ($14.95): The predecessor to ATF: Armored Task Force and Air Assault Task Force, combined arms warfare at a brigade/regimental level. If you like tanks, and brigades, then BCT Commander is your game.

Bronze ($24.95): Ancient conquest via the path of the Eurogame. Easy to learn, hard to master gameplay wrapped up in a crunchy soft shell of historical goodness, Bronze is the model for a computer game enjoyable from ages 8 until 80. Look for the licensed board game from Spiral Galaxy Games UK in 2012.

The Falklands War: 1982 ($34.95): ProSIM does historical. Not many games have tackled the Falklands War. Focusing on the ground actions this is a perfect example of the flexibility of the ProSIM engine. Instead of commanding platoons of tanks players command platoons of infantry, with fidelity right down to individual bayonet charges.

Raging Tiger: The Second Korean War ($34.95): The next potential war in Korea featuring an exciting mixture of scenarios providing players with numerous challenges. As with other ProSIM products, Raging Tiger is compatible with other ProSIM titles.

Salvo! ($34.95): Crush your enemies on the high seas through the joyous use of iron spheres of destruction. Encompassing the Age of Fighting Sail and featuring three centuries of nautical mayhem, Salvo! does everything from duels to entire fleet engagements. As WinSPWW2 is to tactical WW2 computer wargaming, Salvo! is to naval wargaming.

Scallywag: In the Lair of the Medusa ($21.95): A mixture of dungeon creation kit and dungeon crawling, Scallywag allows gamers to play the Rogue-like single player action RPG or craft their own games using basic Windows applications. The standard game features plenty of nifty ideas, such as the importance of light, and boasts an impressive number of levels. Modding Scallywag is super easy, allowing gamers to change the game in minutes.

Space HoRSE ($22.95): Inspired by the all-time classic, M.U.L.E., this is a non-violent game of space economics playable with up to four players at one computer.

The Star and the Crescent ($34.95): Arab-Israeli conflicts, both historical and hypothetical. Lots of armor action, along with highly detailed close air support and air defense mechanics makes The Star and the Crescent a terrific title for the modern wargamer.

Total Eclipse ($3.95 to $6.95): Total Eclipse is not a single RPG experience, but an open ended RPG system created to allow gamers to experience a rich variety of settings based around a single set of rules. This is pen & paper tabletop gaming at its finest!

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 single session.

winSPWW2 and winSPMBT Enhanced Editions ($34.95 each): Hexes and tanks! This is old school wargaming at its finest, featuring literally thousands of hours of gameplay. Between the two games you’ll be able to play any scenario you can think of from the early 1930s until the 2020s.

World Supremacy ($24.95): This land is my land…that land is my land…in fact, it’s all my land. Experience your manifest destiny at conquering the planet one territory at a time with World Supremacy. Diplomacy and gift giving is replaced with heavy armor and thermonuclear warheads.

Remember, the sale runs through December 31st! If ordering physical products as gifts you should order soon.
