Past Campaigns

World War II - Coral Sea

This is a two player game set in May of 1942. The Japanese are required to invade Port Moresby within five days. The Allies have to stop them. There have been some classic air versus ship battles in this very interesting campaign. This link gives an overview and a turn by turn description of the campaign. Rules used are our modified Avalon Hill "Midway" game called the " Coral Sea campaign game," "Blue Sky - Red Sun," and "Shipbase."

Vikings - Fighting for pigs and glory

This is a fun campaign that we play when one of the larger games runs short. The four players each control a family of Vikings and their karls. The families squabble about a variety of things, and most games are attempts to steal livestock from the hapless farmers in the area. Howard Whitehouse's "Battle Troll" rules, heavily modified, are the set used for this campaign, with the campaign features regulated by our "Pigs and Glory".
