Dunkirk: France 1940 Game Launches on Kickstarter
Our Dunkirk: France 1940 game has launched on Kickstarter. Check it out at this link!
France, 1940. Germany surprises the world by its blitzkrieg campaign in western Europe. In six weeks the allies are crushed and France, Belgium and the Netherlands surrender. Great Britain’s army is trapped in Dunkirk.
Now you can relive this amazing campaign with our game Dunkirk . Can Germany overwhelm the allies again? Can France hold? Can the British army be trapped and destroyed or will they get away? Or maybe the allies can even prevent the debacle from happening. All of these possibilities are open to you. The game covers the whole 1940 campaign in western Europe.
Doug Bryant has been designing and playtesting this masterpiece for years and much like the combatants of that campaign, it is ready to go into action. Help support it on Kickstarter.
WHAT IS THE CAMPAIGN ABOUT
DUNKIRK: FRANCE 1940 is a block wargame designed by Doug Bryant. The game allows you to refight the German invasion of France, and the low countries in May and June of 1940. Doug has been designing and playtesting the game for over 2 years and has some innovative concepts in the game. Before the game begins the German player picks a strategy card that has various goals for him to attain for victory. Each player has a hand of cards that add to battle, reinforcements, and other elements that occurred or could have occurred during the game. The game is not card driven, but card enhanced. The game is chit driven. The Allied, and German armies are broken up into their larger commands, chits are placed in a cup and drawn during the game turn. When a chit is drawn, the command for that chit is activated for movement and combat. Victory is determined at the end of the game if the Germans can attain the goals on their strategy card, and for the Allies if they can prevent the Germans from reaching their goals.
The campaign is EU friendly.
