COMMAND #40:Buena Vista & Moscow Burning (2) games

COMMAND #40:Buena Vista & Moscow Burning (2) games
by Pfost, Richard


Buena Vista is a simulation of the 23 February 1847 battle between Zachary Taylor's American Army of Occupation and Santa Anna's Army of North Mexico. Santa Anna hoped to defeat Taylor's force before returning south to stop Winfield Scott's invasion of central Mexico. this game only covers the second day of the battle (the decisive period of this conflict). The colorful map shows six types of terrain found around Buena Vista Hacienda as it existed in 1847.124 counters, of which 16 are double-sized, one 22'x34' mapsheet, 7 pages of rules. This game is of low complexity and can be played by two people in about 3 hours.

Moscow Burning is a 'what if' game simulating the first 30 days fighting that could occur in the Russian ethnic heartland if that nation's current experiment with capitalism and 'democracy' fails.
Though the game does allow for the accidental or terrorist detonation of individual nuclear weapons, it does not simulate the possiblity of a new Russian Civil War escalating into any kind of strategic nuclear exchange. The game system contains no ZOC, replacement or supply rules. Hex control and unit loyalties are the primary components to winning. Militia, regular Russian army and Ministry of the Interior units start the game without having any particular identification, indicative of the confusion and fluidity inherent in the opening phases of the conflict, while the Elite units are more crucial to determining the course of any new civil war in Russia and bear the specific I.D.s of their real-world counterparts. A player can bid with VPs to change the loyalties of elite units. Militia is converted by occupation of a city through advance after combat.
