Improved Wargame Shopping Experience


Hall of Fame Game Designer John Hill (1945-2015) designed Squad Leader, one of the most complex and thrilling wargames of its time. It is virtually and completely unique among World War II board games focusing on infantry combat in Europe.

Squad Leader is the absolute natural extension of the trends toward realism. All of the pieces of Squad leader represent the regular squads rated for firepower, range and morale as well as weapon and vehicle crews and elite squads.

Today I made changes to the John Hill wargamer tribute site shopping experience.  I created an Amazon aStore for the Across A Deadly Field rulebooks, available both in hard copy and kindle version.  In addition, I also created a second Amazon aStore for John Hill Squad Leader products with over 200 Squad Leader products to choose from. There are two different ways to access each of the online wargaming shops.  You may use the right-hand side widgets to browse either the ADF Amazon Store or the Squad Leader Amazon Store.  You can also access the wargaming shops through the navigation links. It is my aim to make your wargaming shopping experience as simple and straightforward as possible.

You still have the choice of purchasing the ADF rulebooks from either Amazon or Barnes & Noble. I created two separate wargaming shopping pages off the ADF Resources link – one for the ADF Amazon Store and one for ADF Barnes & Noble Store. I hope this makes it easier for wargamers to find the products they want at the right prices.

Thank you to everyone for your support and admiration for the contributions of the late John Hill to the wargaming industry.  My father had a drive and passion to keep the spirit of wargaming alive and kicking.  Although the world of wargaming will never see another brilliant piece of work designed by my father, you can still enjoy his many achievements and works of art.

Keep Wargaming Alive!

    Hi Steph, I really appreciate your putting together these resources to help gamers get their hands on these games. I was just wondering whether Amazon store or Barnes & Noble store would be better for online game shopping from Asia? Or is there no difference at all? Just a bit “paranoid” as online game shopping in Asia can be pretty troublesome sometimes.

    Thanks Steph, keep up the great work!

      Hi Gin:

      Thank you for visiting my website. I actually do not know anything about shopping for games in Asia. I am not sure if there are certain restrictions in other countries? Has Asia had problems working with Amazon aStore and Barns & Noble online stores?

      Have a wonderful day!

    I grew up with these kind of games, but there’s not an easy way to find them here in Sweden, but I haven’t thought of buying wargames online – Didn’t know there was so many different wargames around – Thanks for making this much easier for me. Now to decide whether to shop for Squad Leader or Across A Deadly Field. I have always been a fan of Barnes & Noble, so thank for providing a way to shop online at Barnes & Noble for ADF. 🙂

      Hi Jonas:

      That is precisely one of the reasons why I created this website as well as a platform for acquiring wargames in places where you cannot buy them the traditional way in hobby shops. Plus, many of my father, John Hill, games you cannot get in hobby shops anywhere in the world. The only place to purchase them is through the internet. Thank you for checking out my tribute site to my father. Have a great time shopping. As mentioned in the post, the Amazon Squad Leader aStore has over 200 products all relating to Squad Leader and ASL (Advanced Squad Leader). Have a wonderful week.
