    Force on Force
    In this new set of wargaming rules, Osprey (in conjunction with Ambush Alley Games), presents two modern-era wargames: Force on Force and Ambush Alley. Force on Force is a wargame for symmetrical, kinetic engagements between professional forces in the modern era. The rules cover all aspects of modern warfare from the confidence and supply level of troops to air-strikes and off-board artillery and incorporate tailored mechanics that allow the same rule-set to accommodate scenarios set anywhere from the end of World War II to the conflicts on today's news without sacrificing either character or playability. From infantry and armor to artillery and air support, Force on Force presents everything gamers need to recreate post-war warfare between conventional, combined-arms forces. The book also contains Ambush Alley, the incredibly popular modern miniature wargame that allows players to recreate the intense counter-insurgency actions in an urban environment that have become the hallmark of 21st century warfare. The rules mechanics revolve around a universal mechanic that is easy to grasp but supports a high level of detail and rewards sound tactical play. The game's dynamic turn sequence captures the turmoil of the modern city fight and integrated "fog of war" keeps things chaotic and unpredictable! While Ambush Alley shares familiar game mechanics with Force on Force, it is a standalone game, and allows players to recreate a vastly different style of modern conflict. One of the most stream-lined and tactically challenging set of wargames rules ever written, Force on Force is a must-have for anyone interested in modern battlefield leadership or for those who just enjoying pushing toy soldiers around a table.

    Enduring Freedom

    Enduring Freedom
    Afghanistan 2001-2010
    This latest expansion for Force on Force provides players with everything they need to recreate battles in the deserts of modern Afghanistan. Beginning with a detailed background section, the book presents extensive orders of battle for all of the combatants, including the Coalition, Northern Alliance, Taliban and Al-Qaeda. It also presents numerous new scenarios, new mission objectives and guidelines for constructing your own scenarios. This book is an indispensable guide for depicting the complex and intense pressures of combat in Afghanistan on the tabletop.

    Ambush Valley

    Ambush Valley
    Vietnam 1965-1975
    A companion to the Vietnam War, covering the US involvement, as well as the 'Secret War' fought in Laos, and the French conflicts through the 1940s and 50s. This book adds new rules and operational possibilities for players of both Force on Force and Ambush Alley.

    Tomorrow's War (Science Fiction Wargaming Rules)

    Tomorrow's War (Science Fiction Wargaming Rules)
    A miniatures wargame of gritty futuristic combat, Tomorrow's War projects the tactics and technology of today's military conflicts two hundred years into the future. While robot drones, anti-gravity vehicles, and advanced battle-suit technology have changed the face of warfare, the essentials of combined-arms tactics have remained constant. Using the popular Force on Force rules as a basis, Ambush Alley Games has created the most realistic and tactically challenging science fiction wargame on the market. The rulebook includes a detailed 'future history' and a campaign system so that individual battles can be linked into an ongoing storyline.
