In 1964, historian Lt. Col. Joseph B. Mitchell published a compact book, Twenty Decisive Battles of the World, an expansion of Sir Edward Creasy's most famous work from a hundred years past, updating it into the 20th Century.

Turning Point Simulations (TPS), a division of LPS Inc, examines these 20 battles with a new series of boxed wargames. These games emphasize accessibility and playability, and come with hard-mounted maps and mounted, die-cut counters. Each battle is presented in a design of low complexity, but high challenge, from some of the industry's top designers.

And be sure to check out our sister publication Against the Odds!

While TPS games focus on the decisive battles across time, Against the Odds magazine investigates all of military history from a broad perspective. The economic, political, religious and social aspects of warfare are examined in concert with events on the battlefield.

Beyond Midway

You Must Own Our Battle of Midway Game from TPS in Order to Use This Refit Kit.

As with most games, capturing the actual history behind the events of Midway took priority over including some fascinating “might have beens.” Now you can explore how much more (or less) both sides could have brought to bear. The Beyond Midway Refit Pack consists of two elements - Essentials, and Nice to Haves


This Refit Pack starts off with a redone 12 page rulesbook for The Battle of Midway with all the addenda to date baked in. It also includes the latest version (3rd printing) of the two sides' Deployment displays. These are also available as free downloads off the Midway game page here on the website. The last essential is a small stick of addenda counters for the base Midway game. This too can be freely had by simply asking for them using our Parts page here.

Nice to Haves

In this category the Midway Refit Pack includes a redone, larger map for the A Defiant Stand mini-game with integrated rules printed on the map (originally included in the base The Battle of Midway game), and a sheet of scenarios and variants (plus new counters) for the base Midway game.

A Defiant Stand is a stand-alone game on the (possible) ground battle at Midway Island, which makes for a nice addition to our naval oriented Midway game. While the battle never took place, it's a little known fact that one of President FDR's sons was among the grim defenders stationed at Midway. It would have been quite the propaganda event had the battle gone either way.

The Independence Day variant rules and counters introduce might-have-beens with additional carriers and forces on both sides!

The Beyond Midway Refit Pack includes:

Midway Rulesbook (2nd printing): One 12 page updated rulesbook
Charts and Displays (3rd printing): Two updated Deployment displays
Independence Day Variant Scenario: 1 page
Map: One full color, 11” x 17” redone A Defiant Stand mapboard with integrated rules
Pieces: 45 new full color, large 5/8" die-cut counters and 8 addenda counters
