I might order, but I must be certain that the cat, as well as the children, will eat next month.  ^-^

But as we like to say in the Darwin household, "It's not real money.  It's GAME money!"

(Now, perhaps, you understand why the Cap'n and I are perpetually broke)

Ok, I'm in. But I just hope the cat gets to eat too!

Cats like wargames.  Or maybe that's just dogs.  Mambo the Action Dog regularly tries to nibble on TBP games.  I'm sure they're high in fiber.

I cannot even figure out how to order from him anymore.  It is some crazy ass process on Facebook or something.

Yep. It's a bit of a mess. Too bad, but I understand it. Sounds like he's big into minis sales now and I'm sure that's much more lucrative for him.

Hello all,

I'm really pleased to announce you here the Kickstarter campaign we created from Headquarter Games to promote our newest game "The World at War: Europe".

The game it's a grand strategic game representing WWII on Europe. Its main characteristics are absence of cardboard counters, easy rules and fast paced game from 1 to 8 hours depending on the scenario. Some learning scenarios and some campaigns for longer games. The game is good for grognards but also for newcomers to wargame hobby.

The strongest concept in the game is focused on the six major countries economies. The large nations cannot just do whatever they want with their units as in many WWII games, they will have a variable number of "actions" based on cardboard chits that they need use to plan offensives, build units, advance their industry or technologies. The combat is not based on CRTs and difficult process with many modifiers, it's solved rolling some dice on each side and comparing results after aplying some modifiers. Then comparing dice one by one to see additional losses.

You have Strategic Warfare, Economy, Diplomacy hidden to the opponent, historical events and much more.

Access to the campaign here

The campaign just started last saturday June 6th and we are over the 60% funded
