Canadian Wargamers Journal (1985-1996)
Country of Origin:
Rare ASL article or scenario
The Canadian Wargamers Journal was a relatively low production quality ‘zine devoted to wargames, featuring variants, strategy articles, and similar items. Although amateurish, it really served as Canada’s de facto wargaming magazine for a decade (it was published from 1985-1996).
Its ASL content was very slight (CWJ was much more interested in World in Flames than ASL) and of poor quality. During its run, it published a total of three scenarios.
|Vol. 3, No. 1 (Issue 13), October/November 1988||The Back Door. Canadians vs. Germans, Sicily, July 1943.|
|Vol. 4, No. 4 (Issue 22) April/May 1990||The Black Devils. Canadians/Americans (First Special Service Force) vs. Germans, Italy.|
|Vol. 5, No. 2 (Issue 26), 1991. Reprinted in Best of CWG Vol. 3.||Battle of Carpiquet. This is a monster scenario ostensibly representing the Canadian vs. German battle of Carpiquet in Normandy in July 1944. It features 9 boards and probably was never actually playtested (to give you an idea of the scale of this 20-turn scenario, the Germans get 11 modules of artillery). Squad types in the Canadian OB include 4-6-8 and 4-6-7 squads! Only the most obsessive of collectors will bother with this one.|
