"Hamburger Hill: The Tactics of Futility is a recreation of the bloody assault by three battalions of the U.S. 101st Airborne Division (with some help by the South Vietnamese (ARVN) 1st Division) against two battalions of the North Vietnamese Army's vaunted 29th Infantry Regiment dug in on a hill known as Dong Ap Bai, in the A Shau Valley of what was then South Vietnam."

Scale: 240 meter hexes, variable length turns (5-120 minutes), company/platoon sized units.

Operation Solace is a 'what-if' game based on the preliminary Pentagon plans drawn up for a large raid (2-3 divisions) into the Hanoi area of North Vietnam in 1971. The objective of the operation was to have been the liberation of all the POWs being held in that area and the capture of as many North Vietnamese government officials as possible. These latter were then to be traded for any POWs still held."

Scale: 6 mile hexes, one day turns, units vary from company sized task forces to full divisions.
