Consim Play test

Thursday: Started the day with a playtest of Fields of Despair (FoD), a WWI block game under development at GMT. Normally, I’m not a big fan of WWI games I don’t know much of the history and they are either too complicated or two slow. Not the case with FoD as this game is very interesting, pretty simple to understand and fast to play. We played a short scenario, covering 1914 and 1915, three turns per year, six turns total. What makes this a unique experience is the economic and strategic aspect of the game, with air, technology and artillery all developed and maintained through the use of a point system. And, of course, you’ve got the whole block thing going on, so there’s an element of fog of war to deal with. I P500’ed it as soon as I got home.
