We will stay independent!

This kind of big announcement right here: The game will stay a 100 percent independent and will be made available for donations.

Assault Tactics AAR: Oh where have they gone?

Chain of Command boardgame mod

Two years ago I started the Chain of Command Print & Play Boardgame Mod. Why? Because I love this rule set developed by Too Fat Lardies. And as much as I enjoy painting and printing 20mm models I also am very keen on WW2 themed boardgames. So I made the decision to combine both –…
