This is a player's or parts copy of the classic game. It is definitely playable, although you may need to proxy a few things.

Condition Notes: The box is rough and I have repaired it in several spots. The game is missing the following components, most of which are multiple chits and will have no effect on game play except in unusual situations.
--reference card
--personality blanks
--card tray
--GE #38 personality card; GE assault rifle chit
--AM machine pistol chit
--RU machine pistol chit, berzerk chit
--2x entrenched chits
--2x guard chits
--1x Range 2/3 chit
--Morale/Panic chits: 1, 6, 7(x2)
--2x KIA chits

1983

A couple of war games lead the pack of highly-rated games from this year. The other being Ambush!. The former is a card version of the popular Squad Leader, the latter a respected solitaire experience.

Scotland Yard brought the idea of detective games to another popular level building on some of these concepts that have popped up throughout the century. Warhammer also makes its debut.

Quite possibly the only game I have played 1000 times.

Up Front is a squad level WW2 infantry combat card game where each has one squad (10-15 men) and is played with an action deck.

The action deck which includes firing, movement, terrain and rallying men simulates the essential chaos of infantry combat, A sergeant may want to give an order, but fear is a power narcotic years on the battlefield, and often won't have the cards you need for a perfect plan and have to make do.

I have been playing the WBC tournament for nearly 20 years. The first 5 I felt lucky to even one game. About 12 years in, I finally made the Top 8 for the playoffs. The last 4 years I finished in the Top 4 with a titlt. I've gotten pretty good I guess?

Also if you didn't know back available in print: http://www.wargamevault.com/browse.php?keywords=Up+Front&x=0...=

With W1815 you get into quick-playing straight-up wargames. If those are allowed, then Up Front is surely the most "real", most specific story-telling experience you could have in less than an hour of game.

You've got to be kidding me. Seriously? I think my hand broke the sound barrier grabbing this.

Complete and unplayed (!) $1.99


At this point, I realized two things:

1) Somewhere on Long Island, a gamer about my age had died. Sobering thought.

2) I had a pile of items up to my waist, and hadn't even thought to grab a basket on the way in.

I was torn. I needed to get this stuff in a cart, but was terrified that if I left this pile for even a moment, someone would surely grab it. I asked a passing employee if she could get me a cart, but English didn't appear to be her strong suit. Fortunately, a passing customer offered to watch my stuff while I bolted for a cart. Thank you ma'am!

I'd lent my only in-shrink copy of this, Banzai and an unopened Desert War envelope with Bob for safekeeping. They had all been signed and dedicated to me by Courtney (yes, he signed them just as they went into the shrink wrap machine), so if any one you would be kind enough to replace them, you could just send them straight to me. And please include perhaps US$40 for customs fees.

Cost: $40
Completed: December 2012
Received: Not yet received.
Backer: 1923 of 2407
Why I Supported: The original edition is well-regarded but also pricey. I'd printed an ArtsCow version of the game, but I was still struggling with the rules. I hoped for a rewritten rule book and wanted to support the publisher.

Rating: No rating.
Review: I have played the original once, and I've struggled through the old rules on occasion. I think there's some great ideas here that would seem rather modern.
Issues: I haven't followed the details, but apparently lawsuits and lack of money have stopped this from ever seeing the light of day.
Plays: 1 (original edition)
Current Status: Phantom game.

Been a great month for board-wargaming. I continued my vassal game of Up Front scenario 3 storming a fortification. I was the US holding up in a pillbox with the Germans trying to get me out of it. A very tough game that initially went well for me when I was able to put the German main attack group with demo charges and flamethrower into not one but two minefields. Even though my opponent got off lightly with only one killed guy it still held him up for quite some time. Middle game saw him gradually close with my position with good use of gully terrain and buildings. Shots were continually exchanged and due to my flank team getting on a good hill position fire was brought to bear but, without a lot of success. By end game the Germans were just about kicking the door in and keeping my guys very toasty with their flame thrower. With everyone up close and personal the casualty count steadily increased but it was a close call for both sides, the Germans only backing off once their central attack team were wiped out. With the loss of the demolition charge and the flamethrower and no German in the centre position, the remaining guys threw in the towel and the pillbox was saved. Really good game which actually worked quite well as a vassal PBEM took a lot of logs though!

Thanks to my opponent:
