Classic Strategy Games


New life for old classic games is our goal. Many great games have fallen by the way side, only to be picked up again when the 'newer' games let you down. You only wish that these favorite classics has some new twist or were updated just a little. Your wish has been granted! You can always can count on the highest standard of fun when you purchase any of the selections found on our site. Unless noted, all of these variants require ownership of the original game.

Forward March. . . .

One of the reasons the game has managed to stand the test of time is that the original game system was very well designed. None of the changes with the exceptions of the Leader and Partisan Rules have done more than tweak a very solid gaming system. These are of course not official rules, they are designed to help you further enjoy the game. Try out what appeals to you. Players must agree to any new before starting.

    Now you can also add both Tory and Rebel Partisan Leaders to your 1776 game! Included are the rules for 1776 Tory and Rebel Partisan Leaders and Full Color DIE CUT Partisan Leader Counters

    Taken from the Avalon Hill game magazine The General Vol. 12 No. 2

  • Blitzkrieg Module System
    The BLITZKRIEG MODULE SYSTEM revision designed by James F. Dunnigan (who has never played the game) and put into an understandable format by Redmond Simonsen (who has played the game frequently). Mr. Dunnigan's ideas and Mr. Simonsen's organizational talents (not to mention his artistic talents) became so intermingled by the time the project was finished that it would probably be best to say that they both did it. Includes new units for the additional rules of air transport, Naval forces, Invasions, FLAK, Rail Road Transport, Supply, Gorilla units and much more! Forget about splitting hairs and leave it at that. For more on where all this fusion of talent will lead see the last paragraph in the IF LOOKS COULD KILL DEPARTMENT.

  • Victory in the Pacific - British Expansion
    Early in the career of VITP, it was acknowledged that the Japanese have a definite edge in play, and various optional rules have been suggested in an attempt to redress the balance. However, now it was suggested of the reintroduction of an element that was left out of the game specifically because it provides too much of an offensive threat for the Allies late in the game namely, the British East Indies Fleet.

    New Item

    5 NEW games for ANZIO!

  • Air Assault on Crete  Cyprus
    Gen. Student's strategy for the capture of the Suez Canal involved the capture of Cyprus. But it was with the first step that the plan went awry. German losses on Crete in the parachute assault force were considered too high to pursue the plan to its conclusion. Yet the British garrison of Cyprus was correspondingly weak. Had Gen. Student realized this, he might have made the effort for its capture regardless of the decimated state of his parachute division. This game recreates the battle that might have occurred, the battle for Cyprus

  • Fortress Europa
    More emphasis on the air system the part of the game that is the most fun in the first place. German player can now fly CAP over specific targets, which introduces some new tactical and strategic con­siderations to the game. Strafing, ground support, and bridge attacks now require even more planning than before.
    While the role of the air units has been enhanced, the simplicity of the abstract approach has been maintained. German air units are now placed on the AMC and then moved to the map-board. The Allies can then cancel-out as many of these as they wish with Allied airpower. However, the un-canceled German aircraft reduce the effects of Allied air missions in some instances.

  • Turning Point:Stalingrad Expansion Counters
    The controversial expansion kit for Turning Point Stalingrad an unpunched accurate set of 216 reproduction counters (96 3/4" and 120 1/2"). This expansion set generated controversy because the rules for it were printed in the rule book that came with the base game, leading some consumers to claim that part of the game was "left out". In light of all the flack, Avalon Hill never repeated the experiment.

    On June 3, 1982, an Arab gunman critically wounded the Israeli ambassador in London. Regarding the assault as a violation of the reigning cease-fire, the Israelis bombed P.L.O. headquarters in Beirut in retaliation. When the Palestinians responded by shelling Nahariya, the cabinet activated "Little Pines". From the start, it was clear that Arid Sharon intended to execute ''Big Pines" instead. Immediately, Yaron's commandos embarked for a landing north of Sidon, well beyond the 40 km limit. Seven Israeli divisions massed on the northern border, four of them aimed at the Syrians in the Bekaa Valley.

  • ARAB-ISRAELI WARS   IRAQ - Desert Storm
