UP FRONT, a game of small-unit combat in World War II, is an award-winning game recognized for its innovative, card-driven play.

"Straight ahead guys! Right in that grove of trees.  A whole squad of Nazis!"  Platoon Sgt. Allen barked as he peered thru his binoculars,  "And...and another squad in the brush to the right. We got our hands full today men...give it everything you got for 'ol Uncle Sam! Give me that radio Wilson, I need to warn Corporal Jenkins about those Germans in the brush." 

That setup is the basic premise for a quick, yet tension filled and exciting round of combat with the re-release of the highly acclaimed Up Front! fireteam leader card game system.  You and your opponent are each in charge of a squad of men who have a specific objective to achieve.  Whether you are charged with eliminating a majority of the enemy or you are trying to move a fireteam up close to the enemy without losing too many casualties there are many strategies to victory.  The scenario variety of this system is what makes this game so different with every play and with game play under an hour you can fight multiple scenarios in an evening. 

You decide which nationality to play; how to divide your men into fireteams and which weapons they will carry.  Next, don't forget to assign your Squad Leader and Assistant Squad Leader strategically to a fireteam(s).  Also, make sure you have the firepower you need for each fireteam's strategy.  Then use the action cards you drew to meter out that withering burst of firepower or move your fireteams into better terrain for their survival.  Speaking of movement, it is critical to remember that taking fire when you're on the move can be very deadly.   When advancing your men watch out for that marshy area and especially that barbed wire.  This game has a tremendous decision tree which may cause you to change strategies with each firefight and almost constant player interaction.  Even when it is your opponent's turn you're in need of plotting a response to their move.  Did they just play a Fire 4 card on your weakest fireteam?  Then it is time to lay down that Concealment Card to reduce your casualties.  Whether it is your opponent's turn or yours...your men's survival lies within your hand of action cards.  What will you do?  Do you advance, retreat or lay down smoke?  Do you sit quietly in that building you found and wait for them to make that daring advance or do you rally your pinned men and move Up Front!  The decisions are all up to you, Lieutenant!  Since each of the personality cards will have individual names and characteristics you'll even grow attached to your men.  You know, like Wilson the Radioman speaking of Wilson..."Wilson, Wilson... where is that guy when I need him? No need for him to worry about the Germans; I'm gonna kill him myself!"  Ok, so you may not grow close to all of them.

Up Front! is a game for two players which can be completed in under an hour.  The map is represented by the terrain cards you play throughout the game which means no two games are ever alike.  In this revolutionary system, the action cards act as terrain, movement, fire, and results cards.  Each nationality, per it's historical leadership tendencies, dictates a hand limit so which action cards do you use for fire or movement and which do you hold for that risky strategy you have been planning.  The victory goes to the best decision maker under fire!  When you sign up for this Up Front! action; just don't forget to bring along your favorite beverage as the tension will have you sweating "bullets."

Quality is always a concern in designer board games. We understand this and strive to provide the best quality possible while still making the game hit a reasonable price point. D-Day Dice was delivered to all the loyal supporters and they have all been VERY pleased with the quality of the production. UP FRONT will be no different.

Our most recent project, Airborne In Your Pocket, is moving forward nicely. Some components are at the printer already and Emmanuel is finishing off the last few designs of some of the extra Stretch Rewards we offered you.

Thanks so much for your support.

    Canada - $10 shipping for first complete tier and $5 for each additional complete tier.

    Europe - $35 shipping for first complete tier and $20 for each additional complete tier.

    AFV cards will be 70x100mm.

    Action cards will be 62x88 mm.

    The cards will be slightly thinner than the cards in Dominion.

  • Unfortunately, there will the the "SS" symbol on cover of the SS Pack. However, if you are worried that the SS Pack may cause issues with your customs, there will be a question on the campaign-end survey that lets you opt out of the SS Pack. If you opt out, you will receive all the stretch rewards EXCEPT the SS Pack and thereby avoid any potential issues through customs.

    Last updated:
  • Yes you can do that but to a maximum of two (2) additional tiers only. Shipping for multiple tiers will be discounted slightly as follows;

    Canada - $10 shipping for first complete tier and $5 for each additional complete tier.

    Europe - $35 shipping for first complete tier and $20 for each additional complete tier.

    International (other than Europe) - $45 shipping for first complete tier and $25 for each additional complete tier.

    This example would then cost $125 + $45 + $115 + $25 + $80 + $25 = $415

    You will have the opportunity to indicate this in the post-campaign survey.
