If you are a fan of the classical tabletop hex and counter based games, this Kickstarter, Old School Tactical from Flying Pig Games might interest you. This project harks back to the glory days of companies such as Avalon Hill.
In this game there are 24 scenarios to help simulate combat on the Eastern Front of 1941-42, the creators of the game claim this is an easy rule set to learn with only a 16 page rulebook. In this game activation is determined my the use of impulse points and the winner is determined by victory points achieved by each player during the game.
The game is based on what they are calling the Shayne Logan’s Old School Tactical. Of course there is firepower against defence values and a die roll with the results compared with a chart. The maps look really nice with high detail printing.
Looking at this game is bringing back memories of many a day sitting with my Dad and brother playing games similar to this. Those were very special, because they did not happen as much as I would have liked. This game will definitely be on my list of must haves and I wonder what Oriskany thinks about this?
Do you do old school too?
