While not specifically a wargame I thought I would mention this kickstarter on this forum because I think it may be of interest to some. The fact the "operations" are based on historical events is very interesting. The gameplay looks to be well done and engaging.

Kickstarter evangelists are really targeting BGG hardcore as of late.

I don't Kickstart anything, but am always interested in looking at any new wargame or war-euro.

ETA: Would have been nice to learn something about the mechanics in the pitch video though.

Jason, one is not allowed to post KS links here in this forum. There is a specific KS forum for such posts.

That's because they ran out of suckers elsewhere.

$80 for a game largely made of cards and tiles that costs maybe $12-13 to print in a quantity of 1,000 at Panda? Too rich for me (he says, conveniently forgetting just last night he paid $72 for the Polish printing of Tajemnicze Domostwo game and shipping).

All life is only a set of pictures in the brain, among which there is no difference betwixt those born of real things and those born of inward dreamings, and no cause to value the one above the other.

I took a look at it as I'm very interested in the subject. This is the one subject for which I was ready to break my "No KS projects!" vow as I think it's crying out for a solo/coop game, but ... I'm not convinced by it. Once you get past the idea and the artwork, the game play seemed rather flat. Roll a die to see if your commando is seen or not; not very sophisticated.

I was hoping for something more along the lines of what Warfighter looks like (are you listening, Dan Verssen?) or at least more than "move/roll for skill check."

It's probably a great game for some, just not for me.

I did not know there was a separate forum for kickstarter posts. I assume this could simply be moved there? Infact I have not backed the game. For full disclosure I came across the project and wanted to promote a Canadian project. Sorry if I ruffled any feathers.
