Yaah! Magazine is back with eighty splendiferous full-color pages dedicated to the games you love. With issue number six, editor Tom Russell and his merry band of writers have put together a number of features on an eclectic variety of titles, each illustrated with handsome photographs, and anchored by stylish, one-of-a-kind layout by our esteemed art director Guillaume Ries.
And not to toot our own horn too much, but we'd like to think we're the best-written gaming mag going. Stylish prose and keen insight results in reading that gives you plenty to think about while being a pleasure to read. More than rules summaries or mere reviews, each article relates the experience of playing the game, from sweaty-palmed tension to squeals and peels of surprise and delight. And nowhere is that sheer, splendid quality more on display than in our sixth issue, which is brimming with a number of great articles.
In this issue's game. Designer Arrigo Velicogna's Lion of Malaya finds a motley assortment of Indians, Australians, and Brits trying to hold Singapore and Malaya against the Imperial Japanese war machine. Clever fatigue rules simulate the mounting exhaustion and dread. Nuanced air rules-- that's right, baby!, Air rules!-- and the assignment of tank and anti-tank assets deftly emphasizes their importance in modern warfare.
'65... in-flipping-credible! We've trampled through our solitaire stretch goal of $21,000, burst through the ANZAC stretch of $27,000, and are bearing down on HUGE city map. Thank you all, but it's not over! There's still time to pledge, click here. A squad-level, tactical game, ’65 recounts the early battles of the Vietnam War, from Ia Drang to Operation Starlight, and most everything between.
The large (1" to 1.375") and beautiful counters represent squads, Leaders, Heroes, Snipers, M-48 and Pt-76 tanks, and more. As these units’ commander you will move and fight over several geomorphic game boards as you try to best your opponent in one of eight, nail-biting historical scenarios. Click here for more info.
Night of Man is a card-driven, tactical board game.
