We are here to get our amazing WWII strategy board game, Sector Commander, out into the world for all to enjoy. It combines elements of card games, board games and war games all in one package that is quick to learn and challenging to master. Using decks of unique Combat Cards to supplement your actions and randomly chosen objective points no two games are alike, with hundreds of variations of board layout, deck composition, objectives and forces.
Over a year in play testing and two years of development, we have reached the point where it's ready for the wider world to play. If our play testers are any gauge we think you will really love Sector Commander, so we just need your help to get it produced in its full glory.
Sector Commander is a Divison sized military boardgame using gorgeous, Company and Platoon strength, unit counters and specialised Combat Dice and Combat Cards to drive the gameplay. By using simple counters for the units the cost is extremely low compared to the model equivalent, which allows you to collect vast forces from all the different protagonists of WW2. There is also no assembly or painting required so your force is ready to go straight out of the box. Now we love painting miniatures as much as the next person but it is time consuming and costly to get a well painted army together along with all the scenery to fight over. Sector Commander gives you the immersive feel of those table top war games without the hassle and cost. It is also a great companion game to many of the leading WW2 tabletop games on the market. As it sits in a more strategic level than your average WW2 skirmish game it isn't an either or choice, one can lead into the other for integrated campaigns.
You get a lot of beautiful content in the box that gives you all you need to play Sector Commander with another person. The nature of the game means you will never play the same game twice and will be able to make use of all the box content for a long time. You can add other Divisions, mp packs and Combat Cards to the core content or build entire new decks and game board configurations to keep the experience fresh.
Check out all the cool stuff you get
The two forces in the box are 100 points of late war British and German troops that are nicely balanced to give you a range of units to learn the game with. Each side gets its own unique Combat Card deck comprising a well balanced set of weapons, movement and logistics based cards for you to get to grips with the Combat system. These can be altered with the various booster decks and other Combat Card products we will make available as the project grows.
The large Objective Deck included gives you the cards to create a different game every time. This system combined with the rotatable game boards means no two games are ever the same! We have many additional product lines planned to supplement the main contents but you will get A LOT of 'replay-ablility' out of the main game.
Sector Commander is a strategy game that combines elements of traditional table top war-games, board games and living card games together to create a totally unique experience. There are several key things which make Sector Commander the brilliant game it is;
Firstly the combat is simultaneous. This means even if you think you are in a strong position to wipe out your opponent no combat is without its dangers and you can easily be bested in your own turn!
Here are some slide shows taking you through step-by-step some of the basics of the game play and how the Combat Cards, Combat Dice and units all interact on the board to create a realistic and in-depth game:MOVEMENT:
The second unique element of Sector Commander are the extensive Combat Cards. In the box you will get a nicely balanced deck for both the Germans and the British forces. These decks cover the basic Ammo and Fuel you need plus a collection of support weapons to augment your combat; MGs, AT guns, assault weapons and officer cards. You get a great game out of these cards but you can also help push through into our stretch goals to open up some more card options to lend diversity and variation to your deck selection.
Lastly we are excited about the possibilities of collecting many of the Divisions we are making available in stores, post Kickstarter. They are beautiful unit counters that depict in detail all the different companies that fought throughout the war. Each company is thoroughly researched to bring you an accurate representation of the forces that saw active duty during the war. Here you can see a teaser of some of the unit counters from the named Divisions that will be made available through the stretch goals; Tiger companies, 12th SS, 82nd Airborne and Guards Armoured Division are but a few of the potential units you can field:
Divided into Early, Mid and Late War categories the Division boxes give you a large selection of troops to choose from for each game based on a simple points system. The process is easy; Pick a Division > agree a points limit > buy troops from your chosen Division > go to war!
With your help we are aiming to raise £20,000 in order to take Sector Commander from our much loved prototype into full production and distributed around the world for everyone to enjoy.
Its been two years in development and has much more content to be introduced if we can make it a success. This is a living and breathing game that will develop and grow with your continued support throughout this Kickstarter campaign and beyond. The goal is to get the main game and the handful of starter Combat Decks and Divisions produced to make it possible to create some of the famous and infamous fighting formations of WW2; from the 101st Airborne to the 12th SS, 11th Armoured to the 2nd Japanese Infantry we aim to bring all of them to you in time as well as a host of new and exciting Combat cards, map packs and campaign expansions.

Risks and challenges
The challenge in this project is trying to replicate so many historical Divisions and be accurate in what we are portraying, as many people still have ties to WW2 and the brave people who took part in that global conflict. We have a responsibility to get things right so our challenge and risk are combined within the game content.
We also want to get the orders out to everyone who pledges in good time and we have worked hard to get to a finished point before going live with the project in order to fulfil that promise.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
