As Steve describes: There is no change to the cards. All I've done is download the images that contain 2 to 3 cards each, cropped each image so that I had 36 unique cards then resized them and aligned in a 3x3 grid for easy printing. I also created a 3x3 gird for the backs and added some bleed for any printing offset. I did this because I wanted my cards look like really cards. To do this I'll print the finished 3x3 front and back pages onto a single sheet of card stock, laminate the sheet, cut out the 9 cards and corner them. I've attached a photo of the finished cards. A quicker method is to just print the downloaded images onto paper, cut them out and insert the front and back into a sleeve, but I prefer real cards to sleeved ones. However, even if someone was just going to sleeve the cards, my 3x3 layout is easier to use than the individual images. That was all that I wished to offer other gamers by having the file on BGG: a file is that already formatted for creating their own cards easily.

WDG is re-releasing Hermann Luttmann's A Spoiled Victory: Dunkirk 1940. The game has thicker Action cards than the earlier release. It is available in boxed, folio (poly-bag) and PnP formats.
A Spoiled Victory is a solitaire game that recreates the tense situation in late May and early June 1940 when Allied forces were almost driven into the sea. Players face the decision-making challenges faced by Allied commanders to extricate trapped soldiers from certain destruction. Player Actions must be allocated each turn for defense of the perimeter, creation of Evacuee units and moving Evacuee units from the beaches to the safety of England. You obviously cannot save everyone, so you must pick who will stay and fight so that those who do escape can fight another day.
"Entertaining. Unpredictable. Never the same twice. A challenge. And fun."
- The Boardgaming Life
"...another fine Hermann Luttmann design...A SPOILED VICTORY is a solid, nail-biting solitaire WW II game..."
- Jeff McAleer, The Gaming Gang

We have changed the color of the numbers in the little hexagons in the brown boxes from orange to black to make them easier to read. The map has also been lightened a tad to make it easier to see the details in the map paintings.

"So one rainy Saturday morning I decided to print this thing out and give it a play. And boy am I glad that I did!...This is a fantastic little solo game...If you’re a fan of Napoleonics and grand strategy games which focus as much on the politics as the actual fighting, then you should try this game out. If you’re new to wargames but are interested in history, this might also be a game for you since the rules are fairly straightforward and well written. If you’re looking for detailed tactical manoeuvring of your armies as they march across Europe, perhaps you’re better off looking elsewhere. But consider that at the end of the day, N tells a great story and is a great experience overall." - Christian van Someren

We have received final cover art from artist Mike Mirfin for the Little Bighorn game. We are awaiting eight additional counters representing four companies of the 2nd Cavalry from artist Jose Faura. Four companies of the 2nd were offered to Custer to take along with him on his final campaign. But, of course, he refused them. Now the player will have the opportunity to see what effect they might have had in "The Lost Battalion" scenario of the game. In addition to the 2nd Cavalry battalion, the player will have two Gatling gun units at his command for a little more firepower should he want it.

WDG is pleased to announce the publication of Steve Pole's War in the Pacific 1941`-1945. The game allows players to replay the conflict between the Empire of Japan and the Allies in the Pacific Theater of World War II. WIP is a campaign game on a grand strategic scale. Random event cards reflect the major political and technological changes/events which occurred during the War; depots are used to stress the crucial importance of logistics; and there is a mechanic that generally effects simultaneous movement (campaigning). The heart of WIP is the use of Resource Points which players spend to conduct their campaigns. The Japanese player starts with more RPs and it is his challenge to use them effectively in the first months and years of the war before the immense resources of the Allies kick in and begin to be felt.
Game components include the following:
- 12-page Rule Book
- Extended Example of Play Booklet
- Player Reference Sheets
- 22” x 17” Hexagonal Map of the Pacific Theater
- 208 Unit Counters and Game Markers
- 40 Random Event Cards
- Two Six-sided Dice (2D6): One Red, One White
