Frontline General: Italian Campaign Introduction Information Page

The system covers Land, Air, and Sea wargaming mostly at the Operational level as a board game, but also allows detailed Combat Resolution at the Tactical Level using 3rd Party Miniatures (15mm Recommended) or the included Unit Markers. The same basic combat system is used at each game scale. In this way, the Campaign may be used to 'drive' more detailed tabletop miniatures battles for decisive engagements. Draco Ideas editorial.

Phantom Leader: Deluxe Edition (Vietnam Air War Solitaire Strategy Game) Gato Leader. Solo Memoir '44. As much as I love the two Command and Colours games I own - Memoir '44 and Battle Cry - they are not easy to play solo, as they rely on each player having a hand of cards.

Solo Memoir '44

Note that when I say solo here I do not mean the 'I take one side and let a system run the other'. I mean just playing the game through, taking both sides and making sensible decisions for them. Now I could just try and 'forget' which cards each side has, but that's quite hard to do, even honestly. It is much better to have a way of playing the game in some form where there is no hidden information to forget in the first place. I came across an idea the other day where neither side has a hand of cards, but rolls a dice at the start of their turn,testing against the hand size for the particular scenario and getting to draw either one, two or three cards from the deck.

I set up the Saverne Gap scenario, and away I went. It rattled along very nicely. Each turn a side draws one card. I switched to this method. Memoir '44 Fanatic. We play with several house rules.

Memoir '44 Fanatic

Many house rules that I have seen add extra detail in one way or another. In my opinion, the game does not need any extra detail. I’m not playing Advanced Squad Leader. These tweak the game just a bit, to discourage tactics that seem incredibly silly and to reduce player frustration. Each rule is accompanied by an explanation of motive. 1 – More Vulnerable Artillery – Infantry attacking an Artillery unit in Close Combat hit on Stars and Grenades. Why? 2 – Flexible Close Assault – Remove the Ambush card/s from the deck, and replace them with Close Assault.

Boards and Barley

At first I thought, “What in the world is a MacGuffin?” Then I realized that I knew what it was but hadn’t heard that term before. From Wikipedia: In fiction, a MacGuffin (sometimes McGuffin or maguffin) is a plot device in the form of some goal, desired object, or other motivator that the protagonist pursues, often with little or no narrative explanation. This got me thinking about an analog in board games. In my article, “How to (Speed) Pitch Your Game,” I characterized the hook in a few different ways.

Sourcing Board Game Components: Cards

Blogging about board games and beer! Stop Reading This and Go Build Your Own Board Game. How did you and Mandy come up with Collapse, and what convinced you that you could design and build your own game? It just seemed like something that would be a lot of fun. We play a lot of games with our friends, and I'm really interested in art and mathematics, both of which are big components of game design.

But what convinced us we could do it ourselves was that not only is it tremendously easy to make games nowadays, but there's just not a high barrier to entry. You can grab free design software online, and where you used to have to pay somebody $10,000 to make a mold for a custom gamepiece, you can now get one printed for $5 online. It's ridiculously cheap.
