Mission: Destroy the Bomb-Making Factory
It is 2007. You are part of a two-squad special missions team organized by the 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines. The battalion’s S-2 (intelligence officer) has intel of a bomb-making factory operating out of the Jaheeb, an isolated village in the Al-Anbar Province, Iraq.
Your team is called upon to strike at the factory. Your goals are to capture prisoners for enhanced interrogation; search for documents, cell phones, computers, etc. concerning the terrorists’ contacts and activities, and destroy the facility.
In this online game, players will only see a ground-level picture through a cell phone. They don’t know where the enemy is, and every corner is a test of courage. Continue reading

Our Navy Seals in Somalia
One of the more ambitious terrain tables we’ve built is a 4-foot-by-4-foot sea port in an Arabic setting. Featured at Historicon 2012, the table features 17 buildings, a 2-foot-long tramp steamer, and some very detailed terrain pieces.
A scenario that offers some realistic but tough play involves a raid by Navy Seals on Al-Qaeda terrorists, who intend to use the steamship to transport a “dirty bomb” to a U.S. port. Continue reading
