The latest issue of Paper Wars magazine includes Case Geld, a hypothetical Axis invasion of the US

The whole thing comes in an envelope, with the maps & counters outside the magazine.
Now, it is a magazine, and not just a game, so it’s nice to see articles from the main designers over at Compass Games.
The counters are very well-cut. The magazine was delivered flat and I still had counters falling out of the sprue in their bag.
Counter detail, with their usual colors.
The rules look exactly like any other rulebook that’s not in a magazine. It’s a clean, easy-to-read presentation. No idea about the writing, or course, since we’re just opening it.
The map is, quite frankly, pretty boring, but that’s because at this scale, there’s only so much terrain that affects entire armies and army groups. Still, it’s attractive and functional, and…
… there’s a lot of charts on the margins. A lot.
It’ll be interesting to see how it plays, so we’ll let you know.
