Quarterdeck International Newsletter #1

So, we are up and running and to a quite large degree to the efforts of Derek Harris from upstate. It is also good, to me, that much of our game components (primarily rules & charts) are produced right here in Vicksburg.

I am sure you want to know what is coming down the pike in the very near future. We will hopefully have the newsletter service running soon as well!

 1.    In September we can expect 278TH SQUADRON: The Same 4 Cats. It is the first Solitaire game I have published and is from Marco Campari. Italian torpedo bombers in the MED. Joint publication in China, Japan and English speaking nations.

2.    CUSTOZA featuring the 1848 and 1866 battles in Italy against the Austrians. This is a fun game from Europa Simulazioni. WITH English rules.

3.    Also coming from Italy is OBBEDISCO! 1866 The Bezzecca Campaign. This, also in English, is from ACIES EDIZIONI and is on Garibaldi’s campaign in the Alps.

4.    CARICAT! Into Glory Ride is also from ACIES EDIZIONI and is on two battles featuring cavalry – Pastrengo (1848) and Montebello (1859).

5.    St-Lô ( originally from West End Games) – the classic Joe Balkoski design redone with modern graphic quality and with a mild face-lift. Corrected order-of-battle and some minor rule changes. NOT corrections but improvements.

6.    Also coming is Sergio Schiavi’s FROM SALERNO TO ROME. The 1943 campaign includes Taranto and the British landing there. From the designer of RADETZKY’S MARCH. (Two pictures are featured below)

 Speaking of RADETZKY’S MARCH, it is almost sold out so if you think you want a copy, get it NOW. The new TOGO maps with the missing two bottom rows is sold out but I still have older versions missing those two rows available at $5.00. For a larger playing area they work out just fine IMO.

 Storage for our games has been improved and future projects are in the works. Stay in touch for the latest!

Sincerely,

Jack Greene

Maiden Voyage

I want to add some thoughts this July 2. Of course this was John Adams wrote about would be the “Glorious 2nd of July” but was off by 2 days. I am pleased that all current orders have been shipped and also pleased to announce that MIDWAY from Bonsai Games has sold out. The last four copies are bound to Italy!

Derek has been helpful setting up links to our friends whose help has been GREATLY appreciated. We will be linking some VASSAL game here as well. AND a newsletter is in the offing . . .

We are proud to announce our new website is ready to set sail! For years we have lacked a central means to communicate news on games we have designed/imported, rules erratas and above all an online store of our own that will allow us to sell direct to customers and pass the savings along too!

We are still getting everything settled on our end but please take a second to explore the site and book mark this news page as it will be constantly updated with new games, designer interviews and more exclusive content!

Thank you for your support!
