DAY OF INFAMY: The Attack on Pearl Harbor is a tactical level game simulating the events of December 7, 1941. Designed by Paul Rohrbaugh, the game is for two players (though may be played solitaire easily), and comes with a color map, twenty-five color counters, and full rules.
1775: INVASION OF CANADA is a two-player operational "hexagon" game covering the ill-fated American invasion during the American War of Independence. 1775 was designed by Gary Graber,

MONITOR VS MERRIMACK is a simple tactical level naval simulation depicting the Battle of Hampton Roads in March, 1862 between the two ironclads, USS Monitor and CSS Virginia (or, Merrimack). The game is for two players, and is played on a standard checkerboard,
along with the unit counters and full rules provided.
In addition to the games, the 40-page magazine is filled with articles, reviews, and variants of interest to board wargamers.
