Description Edit | History

Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943 is a new fast-playing card wargame that uses tactical Unit Cards, Command Cards, and Damage Cards to simulate plausible frontline combat at a fast pace. Squad-level infantry and individual tanks, artillery, and aircraft form the Tip of the Spear, or Spearpoint, of the battle. Each 20-30 minute game is one intense card-based combat engagement.

  • Fast-paced two-player World War II squad-level tactical card game with a deck-building element that plays in 30 minutes!
  • Play tense tactical Situation games or Standard games!
  • Unit statistics based on years of research yield historically-plausible results with every battle.
  • Non-CCG deck construction for unlimited replayability.

Components:

  • Single sheet of rules (11"x17", two-sided)
  • 9 Situations (Download direct or thru BGG)
  • 50 German Unit Cards
  • 50 US Unit Cards
  • 50 Command Cards
  • 25 Damage Cards
  • 4 Dice
  • Heavy Duty Box

Expansion Info:

  • Spearpoint 1943: Eastern Front is the second standalone game in the series and adds all new Russian and German Cards as well as new Command and Damage Cards.
  • Frontline General: Spearpoint 1987 is a modern (cold war, 1987-based) variant from designer Jim Day (MBT, IDF, etc.) using the same basic system. It is not compatible with the 1943-based Spearpoint games but uses the same core mechanics.
