Hey everybody,

We just released Just Tactics ( I did QA testing on it. It's a 1v1 online, tactical war game that plays like a table top game. Being a computer game, it allows for things like fog of war, accurate line of sight, line of fire, etc. If you enjoy war games and have an affinity toward highly tactical, intellectually challenging games, you'll probably enjoy Just Tactics. It's free to play (once you get hooked you can buy it which unlocks the deployment editor which allows you to create custom armies). It is a good way to play a board game online, play with other BGG members, with friends that have moved away, and make new friends.

The goal of the game is to outscore your opponent by the end of the 20th turn. Points are earned through killing units and holding onto Control Towers (Green towers). Cards can turn battles in your favor and are obtained by holding onto Satellite Uplinks (yellow towers).

You've got a lot of your standard strategy mechanics in place, but one of the units that uniqifies the game is the teleporting unit "Wheeler" (and its deployable unit the extensor). Placing two teleporters within range of each other forms a wormhole which allows other units to pass through. This allows you to move, attack, and retreat rather quickly.
