 Be sure to take a look at POCKET GENERAL: World War II [scroll down to see it ]— Brandon Raasch’s historically-accurate abstract contest where players can pit The Western Allies OR the Russians against the Germans OR the Japanese. A fun, fast contest of skill, daring, initiative... and luck POCKET GENERAL: World War II is a gateway game to encourage non-wargamers to explore further into the wild, wonderful world of cardboard conflict.

 

Designer Brandon Raasch has a nice intro video —

As we prepare to move, we found a small carton containing nine mint copies of Metagaming's G.E.V. 1st Edition board game. We have put them on sale — click on Sale to the left.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 POCKET GENERAL: World War II is simple, and subtle — two players deploy forces to control strategically-vital territory in a series of on-going campaigns. Only 11 units — each with individual fighting characteristics — are sent into combat to present the best combined arms team for the terrain. Skill, daring, initiative — and the fate that accompanies warriors into battle — will decide the outcome.

 

POCKET GENERAL: World War II — 2 players, playing time 20 to 30 minutes —  $20.00

For Those of you whose addresses are outside the USA, as of today, the postage for Korsun Pocket 2 is US$50.00 to Canada and US$75.00 elsewhere.
