The folks over at One Page Rules have been busy behind the scenes and they're ready to show off all that time and effort. They have posted up a very large update that gives you not only a new faction and units for their current games, they've also created an entirely new game called Covering Fire. If you're a fan of more freeform games, then Covering Fire is for you as there's no measuring, no solid turn structure, and relies on a series of reactionary actions.
From the announcement:
Today we’ve got a ton of exciting new stuff for you, so let’s not beat around the bush and get right to it!
First up, we have a new One-Off game called Covering Fire! that we just released.
This is a very interesting game, because it’s a platoon-sized infantry game that requires no measuring tape and has no fixed round structure.
Instead the game relies on an action/reaction system, where players keep activating their units until something happens that ends their turn, such as missing shots, having their units suppressed, or failing a morale test.
As an infantry game focussed on rifle and mg squads all units are always assumed to be in range, and movement is done in a straight line from cover to cover, so no measuring is required at all, making for a super fast experience.
What’s really cool about this is that since there are no measurements in the game you can play it with both 15mm or 28mm, without having to adapt any of the rules.
