Boardgames in Blighty Kickstarter News – Columbia Games launches Combat Infantry: World War 2 Tactical Block Game
Well here is a change of pace from Columbia Games. A tactical block game. I would think that the fog of war provided by the block system should work well.
From the project page –
Columbia Games has published great games for more than 40 years, including four Kickstarter projects: Napoleon, Bobby Lee, Victory in Europe, and The Last Spike. Please support our new game, Combat Infantry. This fast-paced tactical game handles WWII squad level with a 12 page rulebook and, of course, our famous wood blocks… a battalion of blocks.
There have been many squad level games published over the past 40 years, but Combat Infantry is really different. The rules are just 12 pages long, but you will find their depth of play remarkable. This is partly due to two simple game mechanics.
First, our signature hardwood blocks give you fog-of-war with no muss or fuss. Because of smoke, cover, and a compelling need to “keep your head down”, fog-of-war is essential to simulate WWII tactical combat. No squad level game can claim to be realistic without it.
Second, leadership rules that reward players who maintain unit integrity – squads belong to specific platoons, and platoons belong to specific companies, each with their own commanders.
