Yes. Â It’s a geomorphic gameboard. Â This allows you to experiment with both fictional and history based battles. Â When I was a kid, I was fascinated by the Helen of Toy game advertisements in the back of old comic books……especially, Task Force. Â I dreamed of what that game would be like and later, in junior high school, I began to develop what would eventually become this game. Â It’s inspired by the art in those old ads, influenced by the classic Gamemaster Series and ultimately finalized by my own style with a focus on playability, strategy and the most crucial element of any game…FUN.

A&A chess (no dice)
I ahve been playing A&A chess (no dice) as per http://www.chessvariants.org/wargame.dir/aa.html and it is brilliant. It turns this ‘beer & pretzel’ game into one of the best strategy games ever. - Plus no complaining over lucky/unlucky dice. Also it makes Play By Mail very easy. What do other prolpe think?
Id rather roll once like in all classic wargames. You index the attack and defense factors and produce a ratio and just roll once. Secondly, from that site id check out the bughouse rules and play that form of chess for 4 players.
Ya know bad dice rolls simulates the fact that sometimes even the best trained sodiers can be defeted by a inferior force. It happens all the time in real life. Even in American history. Consider that our nation was founded after we won a war that by rights we should have lost.
