#5 w/Shadows In The Weald

Description

Yaah! Magazine is a new kind of periodical. An independent digest that covers all types of war and strategy games, regardless of their publisher.

Also fun is the game and accompanying historical article that you’ll find in every issue. Not huge, these are strategy and war games that are playable on a 11” x 17” map with no more than a sheet of counters and eight pages of rules, something that you can play and enjoy in a single sitting.

To start with, there’s a whole lot of Double-Ya Double-Ya Two for the grognards in our audience. Wendell Albright, no stranger to WW2 grand strategy games, looks at two of the biggest things to hit tables in 2015: GMT’s Churchill and Compass/ADG’s Blitz! The latter of course is the long-awaited “short” version of World in Flames, and Wendell, who has 20+ years experience playing the parent game (and wrote about it in our second ish) is sure to have some keen insights. Roger Leroux gives us a nice look at Combat Commander in celebration of its tenth birthday.

There’s also a scenario for that modern classic, one of five entries in our First Annual Scenario Design Contest. Other entries include two scenarios for ASL, and one each for Heroes of Normandie and Up Front. All five scenarios tackle the heroic and desperate defense of Noville by Team Desobry in December of ’44. To tie it together, historian and Friend of the Magazine Sean Chick gives us some insight into the German side of the equation with a short but informative overview of the decline of the Second Panzer. Additional, non-contest, scenarios include a new scenario for John Gorkowski's In The Trenches, designed by, wait for it, John Gorkowski, and an intriguing set of campaign rules for C&C Ancients by Chuck Turnitsa.

Feeling a little too “groggy” after all of that? No worries! We also cater to the more fantastical side of things, and in a big way. Three of 2015’s most exciting fantasy games go under our microscope. Your humble editor chronicles the end of the world in the Vikings-and-monsters-in-ragnarok game Blood Rage; Matt Foster tangles with the Great Old Ones in the supernatural HoN expansion Shadows Over Normandie; John Burtt battles a dread necromancer in Victory Point Games’s Darkest Night.
