Hidden Empires — Ant Colony Game

Hidden Empires has got a pretty unique theme:

Hidden Empires II is a game for 2 to 6 players where each player assumes the role of an ant colony. You will guide your colony as it attempts to grow and thrive in a hostile environment while competing for resources with neighboring colonies. Your colony will employ unique survival strategies based on those of real world ant species. To win the game, you must give your species the best chance of survival by producing more reproductive ants than your opponents.

Japanese Invasion of Malaya Postcard Game

Geoff Bohrer offers a postcard game -- an entire Avalon Hill style game on a postcard -- of the Japanese invasion of Malaya:

The Japanese invasion of Malaya was one of the most perfectly executed military plans in history. Can you, as the British commander, slow the Japanese advance sufficiently to disrupt the timetable for the capture of the East Indies? Or will the Japanese succeed in capturing Singapore in time to establish the Greater East Asian Co-Prosperity Sphere?

This 5x8 inch postcard game includes 18 counters, complete rules which include the asymmetrical abilities of the Japanese and UK forces,and a 5x5 1/2 inch board.

Unternehmung 25 Postcard Wargame

Here's a great concept: an entire hex and counter style board game on a post card:

The second V-Mail Postcard Game, UNTERNEHMUNG 25, chronicles the Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941. The basic game system is similar to the of its predecessor, Malaya. New elements include German mountain troops, Panzer Corps, air support, and the bombing of Belgrade, as well as the effects of mountain and river terrain. Hungarian and Italian troops also make an appearance.

Can you, as the Germans, make a lightning-fast assault and capture Belgrade in time to release units for the upcoming invasion of Russia? As the Yugoslavs, can you derail the German timetable and buy time for the Allies to react? It's all up to you.

18 counters at the Corps and Army level and a full-color map of Yugoslavia- all on a 5x8 inch postcard!
