Critical Preview - WWII the Card Game

Axis vs. Allies is one of my all-time favorite war games.  Without trying to trivialize war and the tragedy that happens all around it, military struggles make for great games!  Large scale or small scale, leading troops into battle and succeeding at a militaristic strategy is a wonderful feeling.


Today, a good friend of ours, Fanfare Games, has brought us a new Kickstarter called WWII - The Card Game for those of us into these types of things, but looking for a slightly new take on the Axis and Ally struggles. WWII - the Card Game pits 2 players in a deeply strategic battle that will see you managing deck construction, area control, hand, and resource management, with the goal of course, to win the war!


If this is your type of thing, check them out on Kickstarter at the links below!

    I love Axis and Allies. This will be perfect for my game group, who drift into A & A often.

    I had the chance to play it at BoardGameGeekCon and the first thing I thought to myself was "hey, this feels like a card version of Axis and Allies". Now mind you, it's strategic, but not just AnA on cards, it's definitely it's own thing. I think it will scratch the "war" itch for war gamers in a new way for sure.
