|A US Company Team sets up to defend Gersbach|
Sticks and Stones is just such a game. The game is set in the mid-1980s after a limited nuclear exchange between the NATO and the Warsaw Pact. So far, that back story is really just window dressing for the game, but hopefully we'll see some future scenarios that make use of it.
|The greater range of the US guns slows the advance of the the attacking Soviet Tank Battalion|
|I need to rethink the Soviet approach. By turn 5 the Soviet advance had been stopped cold with minimal US casualties.|
The game is only $20 for the ziplock version, and about half that for the print and play game. It's perfect for an evening of light 1980's armored warfare gaming. There are a few ambiguities in the rules, but nothing that can't be resolved with a little common sense. Another game in the series is being released as part of the next issue of Yaah! Magazine, which bodes well for future games using these rules. Hopefully someone will cook up a Vassal module, because this game would work very well for online play.
