COMING UP NEXT
Columbia Games next wargame release will be Victory in Europe,
designed by Ron Draker. This amazing block game captures the
entire war in Europe in a fast-paced experience. The game begins in late
1939 and ends up to six years later with five (5) game turns each year.
Game time is 4-6 hours.
A Kickstarter campaign is planned to begin soon and release is targeted for V. E. Day (May 8th, 2014).
NEW AREA MAP DRAFT
Click to expand the map.
game is played on a large round map of Europe that spans the continent
from Spain to the Caspian Sea and from North Africa to Norway. The game
employs many of the proven mechanics in other Columbia block games with
innovative leader rules and a card deck that elegantly handles history
of the whole war.
The cards are the heart of the game and subtly pack a lot of
historical feel into the game without heavy rules. Each side has its own
deck of cards sorted by year from 1939 to 1945. At the start of a year
players add the next year's cards to their draw pile, shuffle, and deal
five cards each. The Axis start the war with more powerful cards than
the Allies but, as the war goes on, the Axis draw pile is diluted with
weaker cards, while the Allied draw pile grows stronger.
