Nuts! Publishing is bringing more wargames to the tabletop experience with the reveal of Saigon 75, a new swift strategic game that will be set in the historic context of the summer of 1973 and the fight between North and South Vietnam.

The Forces of North and South Vietnam Fight Each Other

Following the reveal of We Are Coming, Nineveh!, the studio is bringing a brand new title that will focus on the war that continued until 1975 with both sides suffering immense casualties and forever changing the country.

As a wargame, Saigon 75 is precisely what you would expect from the publisher – a tight game that features interesting mechanics, such as desertion and air power, event cards, and great replayability baked into the core gameplay from start to finish. The title is set for two players with play time of 60-120 minutes and suitable for ages 10+.

The game will be played over eight turns during which the North will attack Saigon and the South will defend it. The South wins by holding the defense whereas the North wins by controlling the city at the end of the eighth turn. There is also a solo mode that you can paly against a bot that is driven by cards. The experience is similarly authentic and challenging playing as either side.

Saigon 75 is designed by Jean-Philippe Barcus and Pascal Toupy who have been specializing in the wargaming hobby and have developed and deployed some notable, but still underappreciated title, such as Cedar Mountain 1862 and Vendée 93. For the publisher’s part, Saigon 75 is a great opportunity to continue developing its presence in the genre.
