Ambush Collection by Victory Games / Avalon Hill - 8 Great Games

Amazing collection of Ambush and Ambush - Battle Hymn, including expansions. Includes Ambush, Move Out, Purple Heart, Silver Star, Battle Hymn, Leather Neck, Open Fire! and Shell Shock

Ambush! was Victory Games solitaire game of combat, adventure, and heroism in World War Two France. Using a ground-breaking development of the programmed paragraph solitaire system, Ambush! gave the player control of an American squad, faced with a variety of missions against an ever-changing, hidden German foe. The variable events, innumerable tactical options, and wealth of unexpected occurrences made Ambush! a solitaire gaming experience unlike any that has gone before. After selecting one of the eight missions provided, the player sends his squad into a mission map to conduct operations called for in the mission. Soldiers move freely, as far as the player wishes, checking for events each time they move...until the sequenced action rounds are triggered by the whine of German bullets!

The 'Move Out!' expansion added four new scenarios along with new weapons, vehicles, and enemies. The scenarios were designed to be more difficult so that your veteran characters who had survived the 8 missions in the base game had more of a challenge. The module contained 60 new Character/Vehicle Cards, 11 new Mission Cartridges and a new Paragraph/Mission Booklet. As far as I know, this PDF module is unavailable anywhere else on the Internet.

The second expansion, 'Purple Heart', added six new scenarios along with new weapons, vehicles, enemies and maps. The scenarios were again designed to be challenging for experienced characters. And, instead of being limited to France in 1944 like the base game, Purple Heart also took you to:

- The Ardennes, December 1944

- South of Caen, July 1944

- The Rhone Valley, 1944

- Western Germany, Spring 1945

Including 60 new Character/Vehicle Cards, 13 new Mission Cartridges, a new Paragraph/Mission Booklet, one new full map and two half-maps as well as 108 new counters, this was the most comprehensive expansion developed for the 'Ambush!' game system.

Silver Star is the third and final expansion for Ambush! It adds six new scenarios along with new weapons, vehicles, enemies and maps. The scenarios take place in Italy, and are designed to be challenging for experienced Ambush! characters.

'Shell Shock' was the standalone, two-player game based on the 'Ambush' game system. Material for this game included on this disc:

All boards from the original game:

- one full map

- four half-maps

- Countersheets

- Mission Booklet and Rules Booklet

- Cards, vehicle displays and charts

- Squad record sheets (Allied and German)

'Battle Hymn' - is a solitaire game of combat, adventure, and heroism in the Pacific during World War II. Using the revolutionary programmed paragraph approach pioneered in the Ambush! game system, Battle Hymn gives you a squad of American Marines and challenges you to fight your way through a variety of Missions against a deceptive and ever-changing Japanese foe.

Unexpected events and innumerable tactical options offer virtually endless solitaire enjoyment, and the easily learned rules start even relatively inexperienced players on their first Mission quickly. Select you squad, arm them, and choose their Mission. Move your men out, advancing them as you wish, until something triggers an Event - until a peaceful walk in the steaming jungle turns out to be a fight for your life!

Open Fire!

Open Fire! was the solitaire game for everyone who ever wondered what World War II armored combat must have been like.
