Cataclysm: A Second World War Part One

Here is an exclusive look at Cataclysm  from the Big Board with detail explanations and play notes from Scott and William the designers. This is Part One of Two.

The P500 page also has four example videos with game play! The designers expect to post the full rule-book as it stands in the next few weeks so we can get a handle on how she plays first hand. Cataclysm has 111 orders to go to break the 500 barrier and is gaining attention in various circles. From the videos and this report it is an interesting mid weight title that takes a fresh look at the complexities of the European conflict and attempts to distill them down to their essence.

The guys have been kind enough to write this session play for us so lets see what the fuss is all about!

Example of Play: Crisis in the West scenario

Scott will play the Fascists, controlling Germany and Italy. Bill will play the Democracies, controlling France and the United Kingdom. The scenario takes place in Europe only, so Japan is not in the game. To limit the scope of this introductory scenario, the United States and Soviet Union are similarly out of play.

The scenario begins in 1937 with all four powers having already begun rearmament. Germany has reoccupied the Rhineland, and a civil war has broken out in Spain.

Let’s begin.

Owned and Played Thumbnails:


I thought this might be an interesting way to see which of my games I own are played. To see which of the currently owned games I have that I have played and remain to be played.

They are listed alphabetically.

Green check marks indicate a play at some point in the life cycle of ownership.
owned played 2015 played_ownedAn interesting view, it highlights to me that I have a good handful of titles I have not played that I really don’t care to; i.e. Dead of Winter, Soviet Dawn, Empires in Arms as well as some GDW games that just need to be gone, some SPI oldies that really ought to find a new home.

Something tells me a minor shelf clearing is due!

Interesting of the 94 games I have previously owned only 11 of them (red circle) have found their way back into my collection. 3 are speculative, and a few are re acquisitions because I’m a dummy.Prev owned
