Here is a list of the games that will come in the SGS collection. Some are already in beta testing and have a rather advanced status; others are still on their way.
A game with 5 scenarios and 2 campaigns covering most of WW2 desert war in Libya and Egypt between 1941 and 1942. You can play the fabled Desert Fox and its Afrika Korps, with its Italian allies, or the British 8th Army and all the Commonwealth forces that opposed Rommel’s action in this unique theater of operations.
SGS Fall Blau
This covers essentially the German campaign of 1942 on the eastern front, towards Caucasus and the Volga. Players will try to do better than their historical counterparts, capturing and holding Stalingrad or the Caucasus oilfields as the Axis, or repulsing the enemy onslaught and winning the campaign as the Soviets. A specific scenario, at a different scale, will cover the battle of Stalingrad itself.
The only campaign where forces of Imperial Germany fought victoriously till the end. Considered as a sideshow, the campaign in East Africa between 1914 and 1918 cost thousand of lives and deprived the Allies from resources that could have been better used elsewhere. You can lead the German commander Von Lettow’s and his skilled Askaris against an array of Allied troops from the Commonwealth, Belgium and Portugal. Get the ‘African Queen’ feeling when playing this exotic campaign.
Less know than the American war in Vietnam (1965-1975), the French campaigns in Indochina between 1946 and 1954 are mostly known for the final climactic battle – and defeat – at Dien Bien Phu in 1954. Relive every year of this dense colonial and cold war, playing as the French and their local allies or as the Vietminh and its Communist supports. The game covers also an intense non-military activity through card play about diplomacy, cold war conflicts, domestic politics, press and dozens of outside events.
The US-Mexican war of 1846-1848 paved the way to one of the largest territorial expansions of the United States (after the Louisiana Purchase) in the XIXth century. But what if the war had not been that decisive and domestic politics had prevented the favorable conclusion? Relive the conflict between USA and Mexico in this game with many yearly scenarios, campaigns and a wealth of events and cards to illustrate outside non-military interference.
Between 1853 and 1867, China was engulfed in its most horrific – and deadly – civil war, the Taïping Rebellion, that cost the lives of millions of Chinese. In this game, you will play the rebellious troops of the ‘Heavenly Kingdom’ (a.k.a. the Taïping) and their other allies like the Nien bandits, against the Qing dynasty. Foreign powers intervention will play a nuisance role on both sides.
Winter War is the story of the Soviet onslaught on tiny Finland from November 1939 to March 1940, at the beginning of WW2. Can the Finns hold beyond the reasonable and receive the long awaited Allied intervention? Or will the Russian bear crush them and force them to lose their border lands?
SGS Fall Weiss
On September 2, 1939, the Wehrmacht set off for Poland and in six weeks defeated its valiant opponent. It became known as the first Blitzkrieg. Will you be able to do as well at the head of the German forces? And if you play Poland, will you be able to block the advance of the enemy and delay the deadline until very late in the winter, changing the course of the war?
SGS Afrika Korps : Tunisia
This game is the sequel to the very successful SGS – Afrika Korps, and it allows players to continue the war, on the same scale, during the Tunisian campaign in 1943. You can continue to lead the Afrika Korps, or take control of the Allies and see how the newly-raised Americans fight when opposed to Axis veterans.
