Strategy & Tactics - 162 - Clontarf and Saipan - Two Invasion Games Clontarf/Saipan

Description: Clontarf depicts a long forgotten but interesting subject: a clash between the invading Viking and the Irish forces under Brian Boro. Little is known on this battle and the designer has admittedly researched as best he could. However, the game is of original design and is quite bloody in its combat table, well in keeping with the era. There is a nicely produced map and counters, depicting the area of the battle, with counters in the traditional green for you know who and blue for the Vikings and their allies. The game is based on kill or be killed, with little room for maneuver... and would suit most medieval wargamers to a tee.

Saipan is a solitaire wargame using a rules system based on that featured in Red Beach One (Tarawa) published in S&T 142.
