Collins Epic Wargames, has gone to Kickstarter once more to help fill a gap in from the estimated funds needed to actual from their previous Kickstarter for the base game Spearpoint 1943 Eastern Front.
As it often happens, one gets an estimated production cost for a project and then Wham! the actual cost creep up and over you budget with reprints, shipping changes among a few to mention. Don’t fret this does not mean your original Kickstarter is going uncompleted. That project is completed and orders are being filled and shipped, this is just to help them recover some costs.
You will also get some nice rewards for you coming to the rescue to include the Heavy Weapons expansion pack on up to everything they offer for Spearpoint 1943, depending on your pledge level.
In case you are not familiar with this game (I must confess neither was I, that’s why I love this job, I get to discover exciting new gems) the creators describe it as:
“Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943 is a fast-paced two-player tactical card wargame set in WWII. Spearpoint focuses on WWII frontline combat, chaos, tension, and fun. 100 Unit Cards feature an assortment of historical German and US squad level infantry, artillery, armor, and aircraft. 50 Command Cards give support and intel to players.
25 Damage Cards apply unique Damage Effects if a unit becomes damaged. Combat is quick and tense and resolves using four included D10 dice. Standard and Situation games play in about 30 minutes including setup.”
I am very intrigued with this game, as I have been looking for a card game based on WWII that I can play as in my house as Magic: The Gathering rules. We have many different card games but I really wanted a WWII game and I think I might have just found it. I will be giving this a try and I will write up a review.
Have you played Spearpoint 1943?
