THE DOOMSDAY PROJECT: Episode Two, The Battle for the Balkans (Wargame)
The Doomsday Project is a subseries of wars that never happened. It uses the Operational Scale System (OSS) for games on the Persian Gulf, the Balkans, the far north, the Far East, the strategic naval war, and total nuclear war. All the games will feature rules that allow you to play some, part, or all of the great war that never happened. Low counter density and a concentration on conceptual complexity is the focus of this series.
This is the fourth game in the OSS system; and the second game in the Doomsday series. This game will cover the battle for the southern front of Europe. The map stretches from Northern Italy to the Bosporus and all the nations that could have fought in this area will be represented in the game. Sophisticated political rules make their appearance. Players will have to contend with heads of state and their positives and negatives. Rules to retrofit these rules into the Germany game (the first in the series) are included.
* Complexity: 7 out of 10
* Solitaire Suitability: 8 out of 10
* Time Scale: 1 day per turn
