Nuclear War the Card Game Tournament

2pm Saturday May 19th

A comical cataclysmic card game for 2-6 players of all ages. A humorous confrontation between touchy world powers as each player attempts to sway his opponents' populations with diplomacy, propaganda, and finally nuclear weaponry. Little old ladies defect in electric cars and the dread SUPERGERM spreads devastation! Takes about 10 minutes to learn and about 30 minutes to play. Invented by Doug Malewicki in 1965 and published by Flying Buffalo, this game has remained popular for over 50 years.

3-4 rounds, depending on how many players.

Bring a copy of the game (Not the expansions) and you get to go first!

Standard Nuclear War deck. (maybe a few surprises)

Everyone who enters gets a Nuclear War expansion card!

Everyone who wins a game, gets a prize!

Everyone who blows up the world (TRIPLE THE YIELD!!!), gets a prize!

Tournament winner gets a BIG prize!

SPECIAL GUEST JUDGE: the 2016 Gen-Con Nuclear War TCG tournament winner.

WAGRAM - The Right Flank

15mm Napoleonic/ 4-9 Players

On the right was Marshal Davoust, who, marching against the enemy, was either warned, or else met them coming towards him. To Davout's surprise, while he maneuvered to strike Rosenberg's corps, Rosenberg attacked Davout!

Rosenberg's attack had wrong-footed the French. As soon as the skirmishers of the leading battalions had pressed in, the columns came forward. The Austrian infantry marched with enthusiasm, bands playing, and senior officers riding at the front. Davout's artillery greeted them with a hailstorm of projectiles, and battle was joined!

THE RED JEWEL IN THE CROWN

The red planet. Once an unkown crimson dot in the sky, now the frontier
of victorian expansion and adventure. Join us in our mission to
civilize the savage Barsoomians and make Mars a fit place for white men
and women. It won't be easy. Some of these simple savages are green, 8
feet tall, with 4 arms and two heads! There are even renegade whites,
like that traitor John Carter, who fight with them. But untold riches
and new discoveries await the intrepid. Leave behind your humdrum life
and take ship for the Martian Frontier!

Landship.jpg

Duke’s special wargame and figures were commissioned by the Edgar Rice
Burroughs estate for his Warlord of Mars games. There are no others like
it anywhere in the world. Don't miss the custom Barsoomian terrain.

Presented by Duke Seifried
