Flying Pig Games: Won’t Be Long Now
Won’t be Long Now
Hi Guys,
Here are some production pics for Crowbar: The Assault on Pointe du Hoc and the Stalingradexpansion to Old School Tactical.. So far we are on schedule for a June 10th-ish completion. At least that is what the printer says. I still need to look at first production copies, and then arrange shipment. After that we wait on the ship to arrive, parcel out the goods and get them to you. Thanks for your patience. Both games are still on preorder, if you are interested in a discounted price.
Refight the First Day of Gettysburg
Introducing The Devil’s to Pay from Tiny Battle Publishing
The Devils to Pay!, which is Tiny Battle’s first BOXED game, depicts not only the events of the first day at Gettysburg, but also what could have happened. Two players will each command either the Confederate forces of Lt. Gen A.P. Hill and Lt. Gen. Richard Ewell or the Union forces of Maj. Gen. John Reynolds and Maj. Gen. Oliver Howard. This Hermann Luttmann design is played on a gorgeous map of the battle area designed and drawn by Rick Barber, with each hex equaling 250 yards. Units are multi-counter brigades, with each Strength Point representing about 100 men, and these brigades are organized in groups of regiments as they were deployed at the battle. The system is a new version of the Blind Swords system, with this implementation emphasizing ease-of-play and accessibility while maintaining the popular spirit of “historical chaos” represented by the other games in the Blind Swords family. This system utilizes a unique chit-pull mechanic that will keep players on their toes and engaged throughout the entire game. Preorder now.
Old School Tactical -Pacific Theater
Old School Tactical (OST) Vol III brings the popular OST system to the Pacific Theater of World War II. Fight in the jungles against both the Imperial Japanese Army and Naval (Marine) units.
Unlike other OST soldiers, the determined Japanese have no Gut Check number, preferring death to dishonor. The Japanese also come with the new tank-killer units and, of course, rules for the famous Banzai attack. The Americans answer with canister rounds for their Stuart tank, the legendary Marine firepower and discipline, and plenty of armor and artillery support.

The game ships with 16 scenarios, including Alligator Creek (Henderson Field),Edson’s Ridge (Guadalcanal),In the Coconut Grove (Bougainville), First Clash (Guadalcanal), and more. New units include  Chi-Ha and Ha-Go tanks, Japanese Sappers, Type 99 LMG, Type 92 HMG, Type 89 Mortar, and more. On the American side there are LVTs, flamethrower tanks, Marine rifle units, Army rifle units, 37mm ATG (yeah, it fires canister), to name just a few. It’s all the quick-playing fun of Old School Tactical, set in the tense Pacific theater of operations. Coming to Kickstarter soon.

Rifles in the Pacific
Rifles in the Pacific (RITP) is the second of Gottardo Zancani’s solitaire RIFLES series (Rifles in the Ardennes). Rifles in the Pacific recreates the sweaty-palms action that characterized the Pacific Theater in World War II in a unique single-player format. We have replaced the hex-maps typical of World War II games with three beautiful, yet abstracted maps, representing the Pacific Theater and allowing for endless battlefield customization.

A simple solitaire system recreates small firefights (five to ten units per side) over a bevy of scenarios, including beach assaults, riverbank defense, random jungle patrols, raids on AA Gun emplacements and radio stations, and a campaign linking the missions together. Blind chit draws and die rolls, combined with artfully crafted charts create an impressive “artificial intelligence,” imbuing the game with true fog of war.

A fast paced and exciting solitaire World War II game, Rifles in the Pacific offers electrifying tactical challenges in a tiny package.Order yours here.
