Next War: Vietnam is the fifth game in the Next War Series and returns the action to Asia and the powderkeg surrounding the South China Sea. This time the Chinese don’t intend a limited, punitive expedition; they intend to squash the burgeoning threat from their southern border once and for all and prove, through force of arms, that the South China Sea is theirs. Building on the naval rules showcased in Next War: Taiwan, players will have a chance to fight over the Spratly and Paracel Islands once again, as well as the mountainous jungle of North Vietnam.
Next War: Vietnam allows players to play a combined game with Next War: Taiwan, and with the rules in the latter game, adding on Next War: Korea as well for what would amount to the Pacific Front of World War III.
This is a great game. I give it highest marks.
Land and Billingsley do great work. Currently learning Silver Bayonet, another of their collaborations.
I finally marched into Hanoi after all these years since ’68…….except I did it arm-in-arm with the NVA to throw out the Chinese!!!
