Napoleon: War of Attrition
Our second game is in progress! “Napoleon: War of Attrition”
Take command over one of the 5 major powers and fight your way through Europe!
You don’t only fight against your enemies, but you must also contend with the attrition in your own army!
There will be a strategic Map of Europe, where Napoleon and his Grande Armée fight their way against the armies of other European Emperors to reach Moscow – or do you want to take over Spain? Battles happen on various tactical maps!
Beware, your troops will suffer from forced marches, from need of supply, from illness; too big divisions may fall apart because of hunger or bad leadership; there are unpassable mountains in your way – it is hard to rule Europe!

Tank on Tank Digital is a board game, many wargamers will know, transferred into a computer game, with 38 different scenarios in 2 modules, and some longer campaigns.
Tank on Tank Digital brings the excitement of Peter Bogdasarian’s Tank on Tank series to the PC. Fight battles and campaigns on both Eastern and Western fronts. Command Panthers and Tigers against T-34s and KV/85s in Russia, or against Shermans and Pershings in Europe. Send armored infantry against anti-tank guns and artillery positions, protect valuable convoys, and lead all-out assaults.
There are rules for improved positions, armored infantry, airstrikes, mounted units, artillery, HQ orders, and more. Units in the game include Shermans, Pershings, Wolverines, T-34s, KV/85s, KV-1s, Tigers, Panthers, Panzer MkIVs, Puma and M-8 scout cars, AT-guns, fixed and mobile artillery, armored infantry, mounted and unmounted infantry.
Experience the tactical flavor of World War II tank battles like never before. Tank on Tank Digital is a light tactical game depicting ground combat in World War II that can be learned in a few minutes. If you’ve been looking for a simple game to try your leadership abilities, or perhaps something light to introduce young commanders and tacticians to war gaming, Tank on Tank Digital is the answer.
Module Westfront with 19 Scenarios and 4 Campaigns (‘Operation Jake’ is a shorter introductory Campaign with 2 Scenarios on a single Map A).
Module Eastfront with 19 Scenarios and 3 Campaigns (Stalingrad consists of 5 Scenarios 18 Turns each on an evolving unique Stalingrad Map).
See some reviews:
„This is a gateway wargame and quite an addictive one I must add. One that can bring new blood to the fold and allow us to share our passion for the genre with others who may be afraid to dip a toe in the waters of conflict simulations.“
A wargamers needful things
„This is a game that is meant to be quick, simple, and fun, and it succeeds in checking all of those boxes.“
„Short and sweet, and I was feeling pretty good about the win.“

HexDraw is an easy to use graphical editor for designing hexagon grid game maps. With HexDraw you create playing maps with up to 200 x 200 hex fields or 67 x 67 inches (170 cm).
HexDraw helps you to easily create different terrain features like roads and hexes in plain colours or textures. (Some textures are included but you may create your own textures).
With your favourite bitmap-painting program you can draw anything you like directly on the hexes such as buildings, cities, space stations …
Your drawing will then have the right size and position.
You may load an image as the background – let the map be see-through and place your artwork on top. This could be an image from Google earth or a historical map. Background images can be resized and rotated so as to fit your hexmap.
You can print your map on multiple pages and play your own design wargame, playtest map, historical Advanced Squad Leader Scenario, etc.
Exporting the final map as a bitmap image for further use in other graphics design programs is also included.
