Global War

"Just fantastic. The best role-playing game I've ever played. Just crazy good!" - Jamey Cribbs

A grand strategic solitaire war game, GLOBAL WAR: World War II Worldwide 1939-1945 lets you fight all of World War II in one three-hour sitting!


Smaller scenarios can be played in less time.

You can fight epic carrier battles in the Pacific while Panzer armies roll across the Eastern Front. You will use wartime leaders like Churchill and Stalin to achieve military goals from Western Europe and Russia to Ethiopia, China, and Southeast Asia. Build fleets of convoys to offset German U-Boats. Support armed partisan resistance. Employ the unique talents of generals like Patton, Montgomery, MacArthur, and Zhukov to defy fascist aggressors. Wage the Battle of Britain in a struggle for control of the skies. Task your scientists to develop the A-Bomb. Conduct bombing missions to batter Axis industrial capacity and morale as Axis offensives in Europe, Africa, China, the Pacific, and Russia challenge your own morale. Land on the beaches at Normandy. Fight epic battles at Stalingrad, Imphal, and Guadalcanal. All to determine the fate of the globe –


-- for this is GLOBAL WAR!

 "The theme and history also shine through.

There’s nothing I love more than a solitaire game that brings history

to life. Global War is filled with historical events, both military

and political, that have a direct and thematic impact on the game.

Combined with the core systems, they all act to simulate World War 2

in a very playable format."


"Global War from Ben Madison and White Dog Games is my new go-to grand

strategic WW2 solitaire wargame. It’s simply best in class."

-- Wayne Hansen
