Engage the occupation of France in la petite guerre to throw off the yoke of the oppressors and free your homeland!

Maquis is a solitaire worker-placement game with variable goals. The player places his resistance agents on spaces around town to achieve his goals (blowing up trains, publishing underground newspapers, aiding spies etc.). At the same time collaborators and soldiers patrol the area. Agents who can't make it back to the safe house at the end of the day are arrested, and never seen again.

You can choose from 9 missions to play using 6 levels of difficulty.

Poorly explained rules hide an interesting game


The rules are really poorly explained--you'll want to read the board game rules elsewhere online in order to have a chance at winning...or understanding what's going on. Patrol placement is the most notable missing area...why did the numbers just change after placing somebody? You'll need to read the real rules in order to find out.

The missions at the top of the screen are areas you can place your units, but that isn't explained and isn't obvious from the green-on-green indicator.

It could really do with a long-press affordance in understanding what certain symbols mean too, or what's going to happen if I take that action.

Behind the UI and among the rules, though, there's a worthwhile solitaire game lurking!

Fun gameplay, mediocre interface


While this game could use some improvements in the user interface, it is fun and challenging. I've played about 10 times on "very easy" and haven't won yet though it took a few games to figure out how to play.

Playable on iPhone once you figure out the small icons. iPad is the same interface, just bigger.

Biased, and too tough to win.

You, the Resistance player, must go first. Then the patrols are placed. That's not fair, or realistic. In reality, the Resistance would have some idea where the patrols are. The patrols should move first.

And town's morale automatically decreases as the game progresses. Even if nothing bad happens! That's just silly.

And here's one more thing. The Resistance starts with nothing. Nothing at all. Not with an old shotgun, and not even with a loaf of bread. Again, that's just silly.
