Conflict and Chaos: Vietnam 1965

A strategy war game based on the historic US involvement in the Vietnam Conflict from 1965 to 1975.




On 2 March 1965, following an attack on a US Marine Barracks at Pleiku, Operation Flaming Dart, Operation Rolling Thunder and Operation Arc Light commenced. This intense bombing campaign, which ultimately lasted three years, was intended to force North Vietnam to cease its support for the National Front for the Liberation of South Vietnam by threatening to destroy North Vietnam's air defenses and industrial infrastructure and to bolster the morale of the South Vietnamese.

Ultimately the US involvement in Vietnam was ineffective. On 15 January 1973, President Richard Nixon announced the suspension of US offensive action against North Vietnam. The Paris Peace Accords on "Ending the war and restoring peace in Vietnam" were signed on 27 January 1973, officially ending direct US involvement in the Vietnam Conflict.

Take control of the nine major powers involved in one of the most controversial conflicts of all time. Can you change the course of history in a few short hours?

  • Hidden troop deployment
  • Surprise attack
  • Infantry extraction
  • Special reinforcement
  • Multinational forces
  • Political influences

NOTE: PLAYER POWER UNIT TOKENS SOLD SEPARATELY as many people would prefer to use their plastic playing pieces from other games vs cardboard tokens.
