District Commander: Binh Dinh out now!

District Commander Binh Dinh is out today from Hollandspiele!

https://hollandspiele.com/products/district-commander-binh-dinh

The second volume is District Commander Binh Dinh, set in the jungles of Vietnam circa 1969. This is a period of transition that sees Government forces shifting their focus from pitched battles to providing population security and pacification. Mr. Train gives each player very different tools – here, we have rules for Agent Orange, the Phoenix Program, and the Ho Chi Minh Trail, among others – with which to pursue a sometimes shifting set of operational goals in a highly-customizable sandbox.

Hollandspiele + Second Chance Games = $ales$ !!

Even since Hollandspiele got started, they have had a rising tide of interest from customers in the UK and Europe – interest that was promptly deflated by their  production costs (print-on-demand) and postage (which could sometimes be higher than the cost of the item) and probability of exorbitant customs and duties once the item reached foreign shores.

The print-and-play version solution was always there, and it’s the same price to everyone on the planet. But there are lots of people out there who value their time more highly, and their crafting skills less generously.

So today Hollandspiele announced its partnership with Second Chance Games in the UK, as their retailer Across the Water.

Prices range, and I am not sure how much shipping would be, though certainly it would be more reasonable than sending from California. But as an illustration, Scheldt Campaign and Ukrainian Crisis/Little War are 49 pounds each.

So this means:

  • Chile ’73: $25.00   $18.75
  • Red Horde 1920: $34.00   $25.50
  • War Plan Crimson: $30.00   $22.50

The PDF versions of these games, available form Wargame Vault, are also marked down, so they are around $10-12 each.

Now, I tootle my own horn here a lot but I’d also like to draw another Tiny Battle game to your attention: Battle for Ramadi by Jay Ward. This is a small game, no bigger than most of the TBP folio games (83 counters, 11×17″ map), on the battle to retake this Iraqi city from ISIS forces at the end of December 2015. It’s designed to be played solitaire, and it’s a good quick simple game on the high points and considerations of kinetic urban combat. I saw an early version of this on Jay’s website ( Off to CSW Expo 2016… meanwhile, Ramadi.) and I’m glad to see that he has had it published. And now it’s also 25% off; $19.50 marked down from $26.00!
