PRESS RELEASE: “Final Act” Seeking Support on Kickstarter

August 11th, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

War games are popular for a reason…it’s not like you can drive your very own Sherman down your local highway every day (if you can and it’s legal, good on you).  “Final Act”, a game that has a little over two weeks to go on Kickstarter (as of the date of this posting), is looking for your help to reach its goal.  “Final Act” promises to be streamlined and easy to play, but just as intense and strategic.

The folks over at Tyto Games offered the following:

Designed by a Real Tank Commander–But Made for Fun

Last year, the Tyto Games folks released their first game– Elementos– which gave a very new look to the old “rock-paper-scissors” kind of conflict, and has been received wonderfully well. Tyto has just recently launched a kickstarter for their second game–“Final Act.”  This is a game of abstract tank combat, designed by an actual tank commander.  Final Act uses dials to easily program simultaneous movement, and packs a lot of “feel” into a system that is quick to get into.

Each player commands 7 tanks (all wooden pieces!) and wants to either eliminate the opposition or get a tank to the other side of the map. Games take about an hour. Since terrain and tank set-up is variable, no two games are likely to be alike.  The rules are downloadable on the project page.

It has been named a “Project We Love” by Kickstarter.

    Wow, after seeing the pieces on the page and reading through the rules, I can really catch on to the mix of planning and guesswork involved.

    I really want to see this on a table and take it for a ride!
