Combat Commander OP - By Bryan Collars
This issue of C3i finds the Combat Commander series venturing off to the deep jungles of the Pacific. The two new scenarios included in this issue are the first additions to the stand alone Combat Commander Pacific game.
Scenario 113 – Taking the Knoll by Kai Jensen and Bryan Collars. This scenario is set in the closing stages of the New Guinea campaign and pits Australians against weary Japanese left on New Guinea.
Scenario 114 – First Joust with Galahad by Volko Ruhnke. This scenario moves the action to Northern Burma and features US deep-penetration forces against aggressive and resourceful Japanese.

By Volko Ruhnke (Designer) and Joel Toppen (Developer)

We now take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of the game’s development in an insightful article by the game’s developer. New players will appreciate the developer’s tips. Novices and veteran players alike will enjoy experimenting with two NEW Optional Rules for the game – including two new game pieces.

Also included in this issue is Volko Ruhnke’s “Jihadist Activities Refined” which is designed to improve Labyrinth’s already incredible solitaire system. Two NEW and UPDATED solitaire flow charts will be included in this issue’s inserts.

But that’s not all. This issue also includes an action-packed Game Report. Designer and developer go head-to-head in a tense game that was decided on the final die roll of the final card-play of the game. Catch the white-knuckle excitement and game-produced narrative that reads as though it was ripped from yesterday’s headlines.

For the People – Defending the Union or 22 steps to Big Boy Bliss
By Mark Herman and Herr Dr (David Dockter)

This analysis article sets out some important strategic principles that aim at improving Union play in the middlegame (1862) when the Union is most vulnerable to Confederate (CSA) invasions. It will be assumed that the CSA is going to pursue an aggressive Eastern theater strategy as developed and refined by the top World Boardgaming Championship (WBC) tournament players as epitomized by James Pei, WBC champion.

New Commands & Colors Ancients Imperial Rome Scenarios
By Richard Borg & Kevin Duke

The Battle of Adrianople, 378, is one of the more decisive battles of the late empire, sometimes mistakenly called the “beginning of the end of the Empire.”

While its effects are well known, its details are surprisingly vague. We can be confident that the battle started before the Romans had their army entirely ready, due to an impatient subordinate commander, but reports vary on whether this happened on the right or the left flank! Perhaps the details are murky because so many of the Roman leaders died, including the emperor himself. What we do know is that the Romans blundered their way into the fight.

We therefore present two Commands & Colors: Ancients interpretations of this Epic historical battle for your gaming pleasure.
