Can you be the Best General?

IN ENGLISH (ESPAÑOL: clic aquí)

2GM Tactics Wargame is a tabletop game that lets you recreate battles between the US – Allied nation – and Germany – Axis nation – during the late years of the WW2.

Players will create and customize their own decks in advance in order to complete the military feats assigned.

  • Players: 1 to 4, including a set of rules to play solo, for both battles and campaigns.
  • Recommended age: 12 years and up.
  • Length: 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the scenario or total points to achieve victory.
  • DOWNLOADS: Rules and Game in English, Spanish and French. This is an early draft of the English and French rules. We are working on a more polished version with a professional English rules editor.
  • You can download the Solo Rules in EnglishSpanish and French

 

 

Base Game

2GM Tactics Wargame was originally published in 2015 in Spain by Draco Ideas Editorial. (In Spanish the "World War" is written "Guerra Mundial" so "2GM" is used the same way English speakers use "WW2")

The game received a warm response from players. We look forward to a wider group of players all over the world, by publishing 2GM in English, and also by releasing the first set of expansions in both languages, English and Spanish.

 

Expansions

New armies are joining the battle with new unit and support cards, unique Generals, terrain cards, game effects and special skills.

  • "North Africa" expansions: ‘2GM TWG: United Kingdom’ and ‘2GM TWG: Italy’: expanding the game with an Allied and an Axis faction, set in the North African Campaign.

  • "Eastern Front" expansions: '2GM TWG: Soviet Union' and ‘2GM TWG: German Reinforcements Expansion’: expanding the game with a new Allied nation and an expansion of the base game for Germany, set in the Eastern Front.

UNLOCKED KS exclusive: if we reach 300 fans in BoardGameGeek, we will include 2 copies of the Heavy Tank Maus prototype and a special scenario

 

UNLOCKED: When we reach 600 fans on BGG, we will offer you the P26/40 Italian tank and a new special scenario. This little-known tank was mainly used by the Germans, as the Italians had already surrendered when they were entering production. We will include it in the Italian expansion, so you can continue to have the Italians support the Germans for scenarios like Monte Cassino and trying to crack the Gothic Line.

                                   

UNLOCKED KS exclusive: if we reach 400 retweets, we will include 2 copies of the American Tank T28 and a special scenario.

 

REWARD - unlocked KS exclusive: we will include 2 copies of the Soviet Tank T35 prototype and a special scenario.

 

  

       

 

   

  

  

  

  

   

  

 A total of 220 cards, divided in three different decks:

  • The US army
  • The German army
  • Terrain cards 

Army decks are comprised of Unit cards (Infantry, Artillery, Armor, Transports and Aircraft) and Support cards. Additionally, you’ll also find General cards, Scenario cards and Player Aid and Game Summary cards.

 

The US army contains a total of 96 cards: 57 of them depicting 18 different types of unit cards and 39 support cards.

 

The German deck includes 96 cards: 56 unit cards of 17 different types and 40 support cards.

Support cards complement each army deck and provide special, one-time abilities and perks to our units during a battle. Use Support cards to hamper the enemy and their strategy.

Terrain cards are double-sided cards that are placed in the battlefield and provide extra cover to our units.

The rest of the components included in the box are:

  • 16 double-sided tiles to build up the battlefield with open field and natural features: forests, bushes, mountains, lakes, rivers and sea.

  • 2 ten-sided dice and over 100 tokens including markers and extra equipment.

  • Rules: a 60-page manual containing 20 pages of detailed rules and 37 scenarios, both historical and special. 4 full campaigns are included: Operation Overlord, Operation Cobra, Operation Market-Garden and Battle of the Bulge.

  • Solo Rules: 12 pages providing details for all the available game modes.

  • 4x Player Aid cards.

 

 

 

At the beginning of the game each player may choose a side and will set up their army deck depending on the number of points set for the scenario and its specific set of rules. 

There are two different game modes:

  • Battle Royal, in which the goal is to destroy the opponent’s HQ.

  • Scenario, a pre-set scenario with its own set of deployment rules and predetermined configuration. The final goal is established by the specific rules of the scenario itself.

The game is played in full-turns by both players until a side accomplishes its goal.

A game turn is divided in 9 phases:

1- Start Phase: in this phase all the effects of cards or tokens of previous turns finish.

2- HQ Phase: we get Action Points in several ways:

  • from the HQ itself.

  • from certain Unit cards and some Support cards.

  • from the Supply Line, a continuous path from our HQ to the farthest line in the battlefield.

3- Refill Phase: draw two new cards from the deck. 

4- Movement Phase: player may move any number of their units in the battlefield.

5- Deployment Phase: player use Action Points to deploy new units or Support cards. They may also equip units with additional gear according to the type of unit.

6- Shooting Phase: player may attack with all the units and weapons to enemies within range.

7-Flip Over Phase: player may activate again Additional Equipment tokens used in former turns. 

8- Discard Phase: player gets rid of any excess over 7. 

9- End Phase: play goes to the other player. 

A key factor to take into account in the game is the ability a player has to build up their own army deck before entering the battle. Depending on the objectives and the restrictions inherent to the scenario, the player will be able to choose what units and Support cards to include.

The goals to achieve the victory in a given game are totally diverse depending on the battle or scenario being played. Goals Range from destroying enemy’s HQ to seize the battlefield or inflicting a specific amount of casualties; to bomb a building or seizing it; raze a specific objective or steal supplies from the enemy; rescue a key position or standing on it for a given number of turns, among others.

We expect to increase the number of cards to include in the expansions as the number of backers raises during the project.  

New unit and Support cards will add extra in-game effects and new special abilities that will be detailed in an addendum to the current rules.

2GM TWG: United Kingdom

It’s a base game expansion in which a new nation is added to the Allied side.

It includes a total of 81 cards. 42 units from 13 different types and 36 Support cards. We also include 2 summary cards and two new Generals: Montgomery and Wavell.   

 

 

2GM TWG: Italy 

Another base game expansion in which a new nation is added to the Axis.

This expansion adds a total of 81 cards, 42 units of 12 different types and 36 Support cards. Additionally, 2 summary cards and two new Generals are included: Cavallero and Graziani.  

  

 

2GM TWG: Soviet Union 

A base game expansion in which a new nation is added to the Allies.  

This expansion consists of a total of 82 cards, 41 units of 12 different types and 38 Support cards. Along with these, 2 summary cards and 2 new General cards are included in this set: Zhukov and Pavlov.

  

 

2GM TWG: German Reinforcements Expansion 

An expansion to the base game in which we add new Unit and Support cards to Germany. Also new Terrain cards, such as Factories or Debris.

This expansion consists of 76 new cards, 42 units of 18 different types and 28 additional Support cards. In addition, we include 4 new Terrain cards, 1 summary card and two new General cards: Von Bock and Von Leeb.

 

  

 

All the backers supporting the project will get the game and the expansions at a very competitive price as well as all Stretch Goals, depending on the pledge level.  

You may get the base game alone or the expansions, with a significant discount for the early birds. Once the campaign finishes you may choose the language along with the delivery address.

These are the special rewards offered to backers:

Rewards for Stores 

 

How to add an add-on to your pledge? Go to your pledge, use the "manage my pledge" button and manually add the amount of $US for everything you would like to add. When the campaign is over, we will do a Pledge Manager that lets you confirm all of the details of your pledge (components, sizes and so on).

  • 1 expansion option: 16$ per expansion. All FOUR are available in this add-on. The backer will receive all the unlocked SG extras related to the chosen expansion. The Scenarios Book is not included in this ADD-ON.
  • ARTBOOK: (as shown in the Collectors Pack). If you would like to have the Artbook, add 12$ to your pledge.

 

ONUS!: we just finished shipping our exciting game on Ancient Battles. While it also uses cards for units, the system is entirely different from 2GM, and plays more like a smooth "miniatures" game. Many people are just now discovering ONUS! and is is not very available outside of Spain yet, so we wanted to give our 2GM backers a chance to get it (and save shipping costs). More info on Kickstarter in this link.
  • ONUS! Base Game (32$) Rome vs Carthage. All the units you need for both sides, plus scenarios. 
  • ONUS! Complete. This includes the Base Game + 2 expansions + Campaign Book (75$). Both options are only available for the English version. If you would like the Spanish version you should order it in one of the stores you will find following this link

  • PLAYMAT: by adding 10$ you may get a playmat already included in the Collector's Pack. A 75 x 75 cm (29.5 x 29.5 in) winkle-free, waterproof and foldable mat made of polyester (97%) and spandex (3%) of 1 mm of thickness and 275 gr/m2. The material is similar to neoprene fabrics of 1mm thickness, breathable and air blocking. Commonly used in bikers clothing, the playmat printing is high-quality and machine washable.
  • DOUBLE PLAYMAT: a 4 player battle can be played with 1 mat (tiles set). Now we add a 150x75cm mat as an add-on for 20$. This will allow us to play with 2 'Headquarters' in each side instead of 1. The mat comes with 48 special terrain cards.  
  • If you add 5$ to your reward you will get 100x card sleeves.
  • If you add 5$ to your reward you will get 5 custom dice.

 

 

As many of you requested, we are offering 5 new T-shirts that you can include in your pledge as an ADD-ON. 4 sizes available: M, L, XL and XXL.

Which one do you like the most?

 

  • A full-color, 300gr cardboard box of 23x15x5,5 cm (9x6x2.1 inches approx.)

  • Full-color cardboard tokens of 1,5mm thickness.

  • Cards 87x56 mm.

  • Modular, cardboard tile-based playmat of 1,5 mm thickness.

 

The game is supported by WW2 Global Project, the most prestigious and well-regarded World War II magazine in Spain.

  

 

      

The more backers taking part in the project the bigger the print-run and therefore we will be able to include more cards and improve the quality of the final product… and of course, exclusive and unique stretch goals for all the backers!

We expect to deliver the base game and the expansions in March 2017, though it might be probable to come ahead of time, as it happened in previous projects.

This project is USA-Friendly and EU-Friendly and therefore no additional charges or fees will apply regarding taxes or customs. Since the sizing and weight of the final boxes may slightly change, the shipping costs will be calculated during the pledge manager in where we will try to adjust as much as possible. Below you can see illustrative prices that will be confirmed in due time, but we guarantee the reimbursement of your pledge in case you don’t agree.

   

 

Prior to this project we have successfully ran 3 crowdfunding projects and we have delivered the game in due time or with a negligible delay. The Timeline is realistic with enough leeway in case of facing any unforeseeable setback.

The game has been designed by Proyecto Enigma and published by Draco Ideas. Graphic Design by Matias Cazorla and the Artwork by Ramses Bosque.

Special Collaborations from Raul Barranco for the video-footage; Jose Manuel, Oskar, Alvar Sanz y Jaime Devesa as regular collaborators along with tons of play testers of the game and expansions.

   

   

In the following links you may watch video tutorials, unboxing, reviews and comments about the game, along with the rules:

  • Instructional Video English and Spanish.

  • A WARGAMERS NEEDFUL THINGSFull review here. "Even if you just buy the simple English edition, you're getting not just a basic generic fast playing tactical card game of WWII with lots of flavour and colour, but a surprisingly varied set of rules for its small footprint and the potential for a much more extended experience through the wealth of Campaigns."

  • Zacatrus videos.

  • Here you can check the successful campaign that we ran a year ago for the Spanish version.  

  • Have a look at some positive reviews and comments on BoardGameGeek here.

Risks and challenges

Prior to this project we have successfully completed 3 crowdfunding projects and we have delivered the games on time or very close to it. And we have learned from these experiences. The Timeline for 2GM includes some leeway for "surprises" and we feel confident of delivering on schedule.
