Hot LZ.  Vietnam. Players will pilot one chopper over the jungles of Vietnam.  Their mission is to fly ammo and water to a beleaguered platoon and fly out the wounded. Cooperative game in that all players will fly the helicopters and the judge will play the Viet Cong.  20mm scale.  Up to 7 players can play.


4) Rules: Osprey’s; On The Seven Seas – Scale: 28-35mm
The fabled treasure of Captain Flint has long been talked about, but the talk now includes a rumor of where (no it isn’t Treasure Island).
Many years ago a ship was wrecked off an unnamed island. The ship’s name was never known, just one of many lost during a storm.
But the rats survived and are remembered, the island is now widely known as Rat Island.
Those that have landed on Rat Island, and survived, talk of giant rats, natives equally vicious and other horrors.
