Description

HexWar Games has partnered with Plastic Soldier Company to bring you a digital version of Commands & Colors: The Great War board game. The game allow players to portray important engagements throughout WWI history. The battles focus on the historical deployment of forces and important terrain features of trench fighting in scale with the game system.

The scale of the game is flexible and varies from battle to battle. For some scenarios, a few infantry units may represent an entire wing of a larger battle, while in other scenarios a unit may represent just a few brave soldiers going over the top. The Command card system drives movement, creates a “fog of war” and presents players with many interesting opportunities; while the battle dice resolve combat quickly and efficiently.

The Combat cards add an element of suspense and will challenge players to coordinate their use in a timely manner. Overall, the battlefield tactics players will need to execute to gain victory conform remarkably well to the strengths and limitations of the various types of WWI units, their weapons, battlefield terrain, and written history.

Great game

This is one of the best games out there. It is the only game I could find on the World War I. I hope they expand and add armor and air units.

Enjoyable game

So far I'm enjoying this quite a bit. Takes a bit to get used to some of the nuances of how the game works in the app itself. Certain,y it's ripe for expansions to include more scenarios and weapons.

Nice work Hexwar

Edit April 29th - new patches still coming out making the game even better. Fellow Fans - please get out to IOS game review sites and support the game vs shallow reviews. Let's keep it alive and viable for the Tanks expansion !

Some bugs to iron out as previously noted. But games like this and Arnhem really show the company stepping up to a new level. - Now just create a v2 engine for ancients warfare that uses facing and advanced routing rules and you'll rule the mobile strategy arena. ;)
