Team Yankee Launch Event Happening This Weekend

WWIII is upon us! Or, it will be tomorrow, anyway… and only on our tabletops (hopefully, anyway!). Battlefront is launching Team Yankee and they’re starting off with a bang. If you’re in New Zealand, you can stop by and see all the things that are going on first-hand. If you’re not in New Zealand, as I’m sure most of you are, such as myself, you can still be there in spirit by checking out everything that’s going to be going on over on the Team Yankee website.

There will be live blogging, photos, assembly videos, rules discussions with designer Phil Yates, live gaming events, and more. Remember, New Zealand begins their day a lot earlier than those of us here in the US, or even our friends over in the UK. So if you’re up late tonight, you can probably catch some of the action.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    I’m just recently aware of the game, and notice the rules(I suspect?) on the site for $25…but other than blog entries not much more.

    Does anyone have any more info? It looks about my speed.

      It is flames of war, but with 1985 or so tech, set in the team yankee universe, with slightly modified rules. Great looking models though, I preordered the rules and both boxed sets, but the russian box is out of stock already 🙁

      Team Yankee is a book written by Harold Coyle that was great (at least I remember it being so when I read it as a kid, dunno after my army service).

        I hope they’re on the level with streamlining it from FoW (they suggest as much in theor bloggishness).

        I didn’t serve but I read the book. I recall liking it lots, but that was when I was a pasty faced high schooler. Now That I’m a pasty faced adult I just play the games.
