Introduction

The Microgame Design Group is a publisher of challenging and innovation conflict simulation games. In business since 1998, the MDG has produced many games and launched the careers of many aspiring designers.

Gone are the days of desktop publishing (DTP) efforts; instead, games come with mounted, die-cut counters, larger playing areas (in 11x17 sections), and players' aids printed on cardstock.

The Battle of Armageddon

An agreement has been signed with Compass Games to produce The Battle of Armageddon. Consult their webpage for developments.

The Battle of Armageddon is a 2 to 6 player game depicting the final battle as described in the Bible. The game brings together the forces of the World into the ultimate battle for control of the Earth. The 17 x 33" game map represents the battleground, stretching from Egypt to Iran. The 216 5/8" counters (die-cut and back-printed) represent the armies of Israel, the Arabs, Magog (Russia), the Revived Roman Empire (Europe), USA and the Kings of the East (China).


The Microgame Design Group is pleased to announce the release of two new titles.

NATO 1961 (Kerry Anderson): a simulation of the potential for war in Germany, covering events that could have led to World War Three. Players assume the roles of President John F. Kennedy and the NATO powers or Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev and the Warsaw Pact general staffs. Confronted with the crisis, players can manage the conflict at a limited level or escalate it to full-out war between the Superpowers.

Solar Marine (Kerry Anderson): a science fiction game simulating ground combat in the future. Players are given troops armed with various weapons that may be developed in the future and fight on the various landscapes in the Solar System.

    In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the First World War, the Microgram Design Group has a series of games covering significant British battles on the Western Front (that have not been adequately covered).

    The Battle of Armageddon - End of the World Sale

    The price for The Battle of Armageddon (2015 edition) has been reduced to encourage sales while the exchange rate is low and before any postage increases. This End of the World Sale will continue while quantities last.

    The Battle of Armageddon is a 2 to 6 player game depicting the final battle as described in the Bible. The game brings together the forces of the World into the ultimate battle for control of the Earth. The 17 x 33" game map represents the battleground, stretching from Egypt to Iran. The 216 5/8" counters (die-cut and back-printed) represent the armies of Israel, the Arabs, Magog (Russia), the Revived Roman Empire (Europe), USA and the Kings of the East (China).

    The 2015 edition comes with a box, mounted map boards, four custom-made battle dice, 256 die-cut counter and 144 die-cut 2.5" x 3.5" cards.


    Postage

    A brief note about postage and pricing. The Microgame Design Group includes postage in the price of all games. With that said, postage costs from Canada can be high. If the weight crosses 200 grams, the postage cost doubles. Additional components or a second sheet of counters (e.g. Cuban Missile Crisis and Ypres 1914 have two sheets) significantly increases the price of a game. It is our goal to keep the costs low; hence, most of our games are light to keep them affordable for you.
