All gift certificates will be redeemable in the Matrix Games Online Store for the winners' choice of available games.  Of course, along with the gift certificates will come bragging rights for the champions and no doubt a series of new challengers!

Battles in Italy brings the award-winning series to three pivotal battles:  Sicily (Operation Husky), Salerno (Operation Avalanche), and the unfortunate Operation Shingle, the invasion at Anzio.  All three campaigns incorporate many new improvements and enhancements to the Decisive Battles series.  Some of these updates include rules for surrender, political units, cooperation between countries, and improved amphibious invasions!

The Decisive Battles Series has won a number of awards, including War Game of the Year from both Computer Gaming World and Gamespy, Editor's Choice from PC Gamer, and The Wargamer's Award for Excellence.  The series features an operational setting with an easy to use interface.  The game is approachable by beginners and masters with AI options to give either type a run for their money and an extended tutorial to help get started.

Ageod announces The English Civil War!
