Most of us could see it coming. Corporations running amok. Diseases spreading through the land. Weather going all crazy. Society basically collapsed and there’s little left except those nations that hung on going to war with one-another over what resources are left. That’s what’s happening in Armageddon War, a new tactical board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Armageddon War: Platoon Level Combat in the End War, is live on Kickstarter. The latest offering from serial successful Kickstarter campaigner, Flying Pig Games, Armageddon War is set in a dark, not-too distant future. Following disease, famine, and economic collapse among the world’s first-line powers, conventional war erupts in the Mid-East for what arable land remains. Old allies join the carnage, and the war grows, pitting age-old adversaries and their new friends against each other. Armageddon War depicts the chaos in the midst of this war.
Armageddon War is a breath of fresh air in the wargaming world. There are no turns, just continuous activations. The intensity of a unit’s close combat modifier is determined not only by its weapons but also by the tactics you choose to use for the assault or defense. When you fire on a unit, it has the option of taking cover, or returning fire, and Action Dice, not endless charts, determine combat’s outcome.
The campaign has already made it over its funding goal and is working on stretch goals for the next 25 days.
