Never Get Out of the Boat
Vietnam, 1964. The most wrenching US engagement of the Cold War would be far more than GI versus Charlie. It set tribesmen against nationalist, Buddhist against Catholic, Mandarin against Villager, and Northerner against Southerner - even among the Communists. As revolution burned through that ancient civilisation, Washington would apply its armament and its operations research. To get out, the US counterinsurgency would motor deeper and deeper in. In the end, culture and will would overcome technology and maths to end the primacy of industrial might in modern warfare.
Volume IV in the COIN series dives headlong into the momentous and complex battle for South Vietnam. Renowned game designer and modern warfare expert Mark Herman joins series creator Volko Ruhnke to present a unique multi-faction treatment of the Vietnam War. Fire in the Lake takes 1 to 4 players on US Heliborne sweeps of the jungle, Communist infiltration of of the South, Trail interdiction, and air defence of the North, and then into Allied conferences, Saigon politics, graduated escalation, and the media war.
Fire in the Lake features the same card-assisted counterinsurgency (COIN) game system as Andean Abyss, Cuba Libre and A Distant Plain, with a pack of twists that take this Series to a new level. A larger event deck than ever, more solitaire modes, short to full-length scenarios, and random, or period-event options ensure tremendous play variety.
Ride on up the river.
