If you've actually read the page this comes from, you can't play!


X is a game of World War II-era squad-based tactical combat. It will feature loads of plastic figures, including soldiers, equipment, heavy weapons, and combat vehicles, cards, dice, cardboard markers, and modular game boards that will represent the customizable terrain of this scenario-based wargame.


It sounds oddly familiar, doesn't it?

Memoir 44? I haven't read whatever page your statement comes from, but that's my guess.

Yes, we have a winner! (unless, of course, you read the product description at FFG first).

To me, it sounds like FFG's answer to Memoir '44, except it will be BIG. I finally broke down and bought Memoir, so part of me wants this game to be another Blood Feud. Schadenspielen.

Yeah, other than the plastic figures, it sounds exactly like Squad Leader.

However you are talking about FFG's just announced Tide of Iron. I am harboring high hopes for this game. I hope it lives up to them.

Yes, it is IronTides. But a version of squad leader lite with cool bits--that sounds interesting.

Ooh - other than the plastic figures, dice, and modular game boards it sounds just like Up Front!

Iron Tides is a blank canvas upon which our desires are painted.

IronTides makes Caylus quiver with fear.

I'm campaigning for this whole Chuck Norris obsession to be kept from the coasts of England.
We'll send out the spitfires if it comes near...
