Hi guys,

I am happy to introduce you our new World War I Eastern Front wargame, Heroes of the Great War: Limanowa 1914! It is a complex strategy game with a focus on historical accuracy and a 2v2 cooperative game mode. You can either play as a general of the Russian Army or lead the forces of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.



The game consists of a long game mode (2v2, 4 pieces of the map) and several short games (1v1 and 2v2, 1 piece of the map). The game board is covered by a network of roads and railways which you can use to fasten your movement, settlements to enhance your defense, forests to provide you cover against the enemy artillery, and more! But beware, because the snowfall can blind your artillery and recon units, or the rain can render the roads almost impassable (if you choose to play with the weather expansion, which is part of every box).



There are also a number of battle cards with which you can lure your enemy into a trap, start massive offensives or counter the enemy attack. The units are represented with paper tokens, but you can buy a set of strictly historically accurate miniatures.



Our Kickstarter campaign will start on March 27th, but you ask any questions regarding the game here, on our BGG page and Facebook page or look for answers on our website!
And even if you don't know if this game is for you, don't be sad, as we plan to make a print-to-play test version of the game for you to try, and finally, help to decide:

Will you fight for Limanowa?

Update:
Here is a link to play the game on Tabletopia:

Looks like a really great game! Looking forward to trying out the PnP version and seeing how this evolves.

Re: Heroes of the Great War: Limanowa 1914 (prototype ready)
Hi, guys!
A new game test is out. We're working on the game (including the PnP version) really hard, considering the advice of our test players. The PnP version is expected to be released one week before our KS campaign start. As it starts on March 27th, so you can try the game on March 20th!

And here is more awesome news: not one, but two mini games will be available and free so you can get to know the game before deciding whether you'll support it or not!

Until then the new game test:

I'm not sure what the protocol is for kickstarters but might be worth posting a link in the war games subforum on BGG.

Re: Heroes of the Great War: Limanowa 1914 (prototype ready)
As far as I know, games during their Kickstarter campaign should go to the KS subforums and there is a strict rule not to do so in other forums. Since we are not there yet (we haven't even started the KS campaign), and we are curious about your opinion regarding the still work-in-progress game, I felt this is the right place for the forum

When the KS start, we'll surely make an announcement in the KS forums, too.

I heard that the Print&Play version is already finished, I hope many people will try it out and share their insights as well!
