La Resistance Card and Dice Game Up On Kickstarter

The Germans swept in and took over France relatively quickly during WWII. And while the Vichy government capitulated with German demands, there was a large, underground resistance movement in the country. They'd sabotage gear, destroy material, cut communication lines, and basically do everything they could to distrupt the Germans. Now, in La Resistance, you can join them. The new card and dice game is up on Kickstarter now.

From the campaign:

Designed by Mark H. Walker, La Résistance is a simple, yet engaging, dice and card game set during the German occupation of France in World War II. During the occupation, brave French men and women fought against the Nazi conquerors, disrupting their communications, destroying supply warehouses, and ambushing German patrols. La Résistance gives players a chance to lead a band of resistance fighters, working to keep their men and women alive as they also strive to become the most famous resistance leader.

On each turn, a player will roll six dice, placing the dice on mission cards common to all players, the player attempts to defeat the mission card by matching dice on the card, spending recruits, and using their resistance leader’s special abilities. To win, a player must amass 12 Glory Points or break--by stealing or otherwise removing all rival resistance group members—the other resistance bands. La Résistance mixes an historical setting with elements of popular dice games, such as Yahtzee and King of Tokyo, with “take that” card mechanics and player interaction, giving the game a familiar, fun feel.

The game is historically themed, and a great way to introduce gamers to strategy games. Three (two is possible, but less fun) to five people may play, so La Résistance is perfect for game nights and family get-togethers.  La Résistance is a simple, yet challenging strategy game for wargamers and casual strategy gamers alike.

The campaign's just up and over its funding goal with 20 days left to go.
