Night of Man is a cool card driven tactical board game where humans take on aliens as the world itself has been overrun. You fight on some cool looking boards with counters instead of miniatures.
“In each turn gamers draw up to a four card hand and may play a card, sometimes more, in each impulse. The cards activate units to move, fire, assault, and use special powers, such as explosive rounds, telekinesis, and more. Special cards, such as critical hit or bullet storm, can also enhance a unit’s attacks.
Each turn continues until three end turn cards have been drawn. Players then choose one card from their hand to keep, the administrative markers are removed from the board, and a new hand is dealt to each player. The players use that new hand, or the card kept from the previous turn, to bid for initiative in the new turn.”
The game looks great fun and did really well on Kickstarter. There are numerous scenarios to fight out and because its quick ‘pick up and play’ style design you could get a whole bunch of games in in no time. It’s great to see it has got to this pre-order stage.
Do you like playing these smaller scale/designed wargames?
