Grenzer Games Launches Sector Commander: WWII Kickstarter

Grenzer Games just launched their Kickstarter campaign for Sector Commander: WWII, their new strategic board game.

Terrain factors in heavily, as each space on the board can only support so many types of units on it at a time. It's not as simple as "walk forward and fire."
The campaign is set to run for another 34 days.
