Joe Orlowski who was editor of Little Wars Magazine (Published by TSR along with the Dragon back in the good old days) agreed to print a Tom Wham game that was not silly. The year was 1977, and this was Baselisk Game #2. (#1 was Snit Smashing).
The Game is a three player struggle for China during and after World War II. The players are Communist, Nationalist, and Japanese. It's actually pretty simple and fun to play..
