Ambush Friday will visit the WWII Eastern Front this week with a 28mm city fight pitting a German Pioneer platoon against attacking Soviet infantry. We’ll be using AAG’s Force on Force rules. Game time as always is 7:00 PM at Unique Gifts and Games in Grayslake, IL. We haven’t played WWII with these rules before, so it will be a fun test of the system’s flexibility. The scenario we’re planning to run has the Germans quite outnumbered, but with a qualitative advantage. Our hope is to give every player a squad (2-3 fireteams) to command. We will also bring our Ambush Alley boards, should we have too many people for the main event.
On another note, two weeks from this coming Friday night will be the first playtest of my Ambush Mars set up using the currently-in-development science fiction rules forthcoming from AAG. Be prepared for a learning game and plenty of pauses to discuss what’s happening, take notes and pictures, etc. AAG wants feedback on some of the core concepts and rules, so your opinion will count!
