Yaah! Magazine Issue #12
Price: 39.90 €
This issue's complete game is "Macarthur's Defeat", designer Arrigo Velicogna's take on the 1941 Japanese invasion of the island of Luzon. It features a full sheet of 176 counters and a 22 x 17 game map that includes an inset area map of the Bataan peninsula.
Article readers need not fear, however, because the rest of the magazine is devoted to happy, shiny cardboard carnage. Game designer Greg Porter offers his insights on Flying Pig Games' semi-new Armageddon War. John Burtt delivers a couple of in-depth reviews: A look at both Stalingrad: Verdun on the Volga from Last Stand Games and the new edition of The Battle of Rosebud Creek from Legion Games.
It can't really be 2019 without including some coverage of World War I, so Roger Leroux pens a review of Hexasim's Great War Commander, while Nick O'Neill gives us a look at Raiders of the Deep from Compass Games. Norm Lunde moves things back to a more modern setting with his piece covering the BAOR and FRG expansions for GMT's MBT (try typing all of that really fast...), and Matt Foster rounds out the lineup with a look at Hollandspiele's Table Battles.
But hey, we aren't ONLY about hex and counter wargames... RPG much? Yaah! 12 has you covered with articles on two new RPG systems: Brad Smith gives us a quick take on Mark H. Walker's Dark wars RPG, while Eddie Carlson has a review of the Genesys role-playing system from Fantasy Flight Games.
Yaah! 12 is a thick 80 pages of gaming wonderfulness that you can't live without!
