A board game version of the Company of Heroes video game is on Kickstarter. Designed to capture the look and feel of the popular real time strategy video game, the board game includes 36 vehicle figures, 150 infantry figures, and custom dice. Described as a video game ‘port’, game play is designed to simulate the video game experience.
Players maneuver units from either US, British, Soviet or German factions to secure resource points, grow their economy, unlock buildings and purchase and upgrade new units. Players eventually unleash their team’s powerful end game forces to help secure enough victory points or annihilate the enemy base building to win.
The Kickstarter campaign includes a $99 Core Set with US, British, Soviet and German armies. It supports two to four players with an optional add-on pack for solo and cooperative play and has a suggested play time of ninety minutes. With beginner, standard and hard-core modes players can play at the complexity they want.
