March 18th, 1918: the nearest approach of planet Mars to Earth. The First World War suddenly changes into a War of the Worlds, when what appears as a meteor shower falls over a wood in Alsace.
A few hours later, just after dawn, an army of giant alien fighting machines appear out of the trees and starts burning villages and houses with their lethal heat-rays, leaving pestilential trails of black smoke behind them.
A truce is hurriedly signed between the warring nations and, against the advancing Martian tripods, the best war machines on Earth are dispatched, manned by the most gallant and skilled warriors of our planet!
Ares Games is on Kickstarter right now with their exciting take on the War of the Worlds in Tripods & Triplanes: The War Of The Worlds In Wings Of Glory.
The game is fully compatible with their successful Wings of Glory range and allows players to play as either the alien race or humanity as it defends itself against the trespassers. Each side allows for a unique gaming experience as the abilities and tactics are a bit different.
Because the game is set in the Wings of Glory universe and rules set, it is basically ready to play, right out of the box and utilises their clever manoeuvre decks.
The real question is, will you be playing as humanity on Earth or the Aliens?
