Ah yes, the creme de la creme of absolutely horrible kickstarter projects. So much was promised and so much excitement from the gaming community. It was like the second coming of Jesus! People sold off their old Up Front! game in anticipation of the new, shiny, updated gem that would end up being the 'be all tell all' grail war game!
Then, someone pulled the card of the bottom of the house and it all came crumbling down to the reality that there will be no game for the foreseeable future! All the kickstarter funds tied up in the courts, no response for the developer whatsoever. A complete cluster of a failure.

Just as devastating as the Black Sox scandal...
"say it isn't so joe, say it isn't so."

Some people aren't bothered by it at all, but the weakness I found in this game was relative range. You place numbered markers in front of each group, and those numbers change to represent movement. Physically, the personality cards stay put in front of the player, but the soldiers they represent are presumed to be moving around, maneuvering against enemy groups. They can even flank or encircle the enemy.

I found that too hard to get used to. I'd have to pause every turn and look around, making a new mental picture for myself. Half the time, I'd slap my forehead and say to myself, "D'oh! I could have infiltrated that group last turn; I didn't see that."

It's not a weakness for everybody, but for me a wargame always needs a map.

I've nominated this every year, and see no reason to stop.

No, that controversy documented in the epic WDTMFUF thread is not a reason to stop.

129598.

Which is, coincidentally, the approximate number of edits I've made to a rulebook I've been typesetting over the past three years getting it ready to go to press very soon.

And I'm an Up Front fan, hence the choice of picture.

More for the wargaming portion of the week, but it's certainly more than ten years old. Complete copy in excellent condition with Banzai and Desert War expansions, one of the last AH titles I picked up when they were Hasborged in 1998 and an absolute steal at retail at the time. That and AH version of Hannibal, same situation.

$35 at a game auction. A large quantity of old games (mostly wargames) was donated by the son of a deceased gamer, and proceeds went to the local VA hospital.

Still need to inventory, but appears unplayed. (Perforated cards were separated, but most chits still on sprue.)

Also included...

TEACHER NEEDED! PLEASE!

I want to learn & play this. I am assuming there is a copy in the Library. If not, I can start looking for one.








(yes, I know my owned games says I own a copy, but it hasn't been published yet, there was a kink in the timestream & it is taking a while to fix.)

Certainly this deserves a place in the list? I think it is the first truly cardplay-based war game and the first without an explicit game board. Its latest (comparatively simple) descendant is Warfighter, I guess.

I could probably dispense with this entire list and just keep this one game. If I had to abandon the bunker in the middle of the night, this is the game I would take on the road, assuming I were dumb enough to take any game on the road in favor of more water or ammunition.

Playtime: medium.
Footprint: small.
