Do you have what it takes to be part of a combat patrol during WWII? Making your way along some seemingly quiet road in, say Europe, just checking out the scenery, making sure no Nazis are laying in wait. Of course, being a skirmish game we’re talking about here, “there’s not actually enemies around and we’re just going for a nice walk” isn’t much of a scenario. There’s going to be enemies, and now you can play out these encounters with Combat Patrol, a WWII skirmish game that Sally 4th will be publishing for UK/European audiences.
If you’re one of those gamers who the dice gods hate, this is a system you might want to check out. Combat Patrol uses the G.A.M.E.R. game engine. It’s completely diceless! So if you’re sick of rolling 1s for all your saves, this is your game.
The system also isn’t set to any specific scale, and doesn’t have any specific miniatures for it. So you can feel free to use whatever WWII figures you have laying around, from Bolt Action to Flames of War.
