Greetings fellow gamers from the MidAtlantic; my name is Barry Setser and I’d liked to share with you details about this great title from Compass Games called Brotherhood & Unity. The game is on a subject rarely covered in the gaming world – the Bosnian War in 92-95. The title is a popular slogan used in the days of Tito to create unity in the bewildering hodgepodge of ethnic groups in the country formerly known as Yugoslavia. Former, yes and this game covers the most significant conflict from the post Tito wars.
My interest in the title is two-fold: first, my last military deployment was to Tuzla in 96 as part of the first US peacekeepers in Bosnia. I got to read a bit while I was there about the conflict and see some of the areas first-hand. It is inevitable as a gamer that I’d be drawn to a title about a war I caught the tail end of. Secondly, the title was the same name I’d chosen for a work I’m ever-so-slowly putting on about WW2 Yugoslavia. Got lots of congratulations about my upcoming title; nope, not me, but clearly a designer who knows his stuff. I did speak with Tomislav a few times about his game and he offered to help a bit with my work as it comes into shape. We’re here to talk about his game, so time to break out some chits and let the dice roll! (more…)

Another conflict with which many might be unfamiliar, All Bridges Burning allows players to explore the Finnish Civil War that took place while the rest of Europe was focused on the closing years of WWI and the implosion of Russia. It’s a 3-player COIN-based game from GMT Games.

White Dog Games has published a number of well-regarded games that seem to consistently fly under the radar since they’re not often found on store shelves or at conventions. With a Cold War-era game on a topic that’s long been of interest to me, I was eager to take a look at my first game from White Dog in general, and this specific topic in particular.
