Minden Games

      Minden designs are crafted to emphasize historicity and playability.  Designs cover a wide range of subjects, scales, eras, and game systems.  Our games have small footprints, but punch way beyond their size when it comes to wargaming fun.   With lower production costs (you must cut out the thick-card counters, and supply your own dice; games are packaged in zip-top bags), we can pass savings along to you.  

     Whether you enjoy traditional hexagon games, naval miniatures, solitaire designs, abstract political simulations, or all of the above, Minden games have the mix of historical insight, strategy, and high playability that you should expect from a wargame, at the right price.  Click on the covers (below) to find out more details.

    ORDERING VIA PAYPAL:  Click on the drop down menu of the game you want, and select either "US/Canada" or "Outside N.America" as delivery location (overseas prices are slightly higher, reflecting higher postage costs).  During checkout, a flat $3.50 postage fee will be added to your order, no matter your location.  If you are outside North America, be sure to click on the drop-down box and select the "Outside N.America" option when ordering, as overseas prices are higher to offset higher airmail postage charges.  Overseas items may be sent via surface mail, or your order returned unfilled, if this is disregarded.   (If you wish to order by US$ check or money order, send payment to:  Minden Games, P.O. Box 10667, Glendale, AZ, 85318; remember to include the postage charge, your name and address, and list of what you are ordering.)

    Many current and out-of-print titles are available as PDF files.  Check them out by visiting the PDF FORMAT PAGE.

   ORDERING VIA AMAZON:  Many of our newer titles are sold as books on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.  This is an attractive option, especially if you live outside North America.  Click here to visit our Amazon page and find out all the details.
