Modern War, Issue #28 - Game Edition
Price: $35.00

Objective Havana is an operational level, solitaire simulation of the planned-but-never-executed US invasion of Cuba in late 1962. The premise of the game is that President John F. Kennedy had ordered the US military to invade the island in order to remove Soviet missiles and nuclear weapons. Historically, the missiles were removed by a combination of American military and diplomatic pressure (known as the Cuban Missile Crisis), but the game looks at the “what if.” The player controls the US forces; the game system controls the opposing Communist reaction. The objective of the game is for the US to capture Cuba at the lowest possible cost in casualties.

Special Edition

October War is a wargame of the 1973 Arab-Israeli War. There are two Theaters of Operation: Sinai and Golan, both portrayed as a point to point system (since most of the major actions were fought over key points or lines of communications). There are two players in the game, one commanding the Israelis, and the other the Arabs, and the game emphasizes critical factors of the conflict, but allows for large units to break down into smaller units, representing organizational flexibility and cohesion. The game is driven by the drawing of event markers which represent major tactical and strategic factors that affected the course of the campaign historically.

US and NVA platoons maneuver through areas of jungle, sawgrass, and clearings. Leaders magnify unit abilities but are vulnerable. The NVA player is bent on maximizing US losses before being overwhelmed by firepower. The US player must stabilize the situation, maximize NVA casualties, and evacuate wounded to prevent their falling into enemy hands.
