The War Engine is the ultimate
wargame construction kit. With it you can easily construct any number of war,
strategy, or conflict based games by simply defining the rules, and units
involved. To show off how versatile this engine is we are including 7 full games
to highlight the systems strengths. These are:

* Armies of Armageddon: The classic
sci-fi, squad based game that started it all. Lead your men into battle in the
far future.

* Tour of Duty ’44: Hot squad based
combat set in the struggle to reclaim Europe from Hitler’s forces. Follow your
band of soldiers as they land on the beaches until they reach their objective of
St Lo in France.

* The Northern Realm Saga: Fantasy
wargaming at it’s best. Follow your men as they weave their way through this
epic tale.

* Global Conflict: Total War: An
operational wargame that puts you in command of military forces in WWII.

* Paintball!: This one has to be
seen to be believed. All of the fun of paintball with none of the cleanup.

* TRL: A desperate war is being
fought in the near future in the nuclear wastelands of the former American
States. Lead your mechanized forces to victory in this time of need.

* Warspace: Space Combat finds it’s
way to The War Engine. The battle is joined when large fleets of starships clash
in this look at futuristic naval combat.

Richard Arnesen, Director of Covert
Operations for Shrapnel Games, said, "Michael Cooney and Boku have outdone
themselves with this package. Not only do you get the ultimate wargame
construction kit, but included with it you get 7 complete games, each that is
entirely unique. This is one not to be missed!"

The War Engine is October 22nd. The War Engine retails for $39.95 and can be
