Spearpoint 1943 Expansion announced

The first of many I'm sure:

Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943
Village and Defensive Line Map Expansion

MapPreview03Expand your copy of Spearpoint 1943 with the new Village and Defensive Line Map Expansion!  This expansion uses the cards in the base game of Spearpoint 1943 and adds new depth to the system, 4 new situations with fictional intros by Mark H. Walker, beautiful Marc von Martial artwork, large die-cut 1” general counters and 4” obstacle and building tiles, printed rules/situation booklet, and a gorgeous two-sided 12.5”x36.5” Village / Defensive Line map inspired by 1943 Italian terrain.
More previews of this expansion will follow, but for now, take a look at a portion of the Village side of the map by Marc von Martial (Left). Note that each square zone is 4” x 4”!. The preview to the left shows two of the eighteen overlay tiles- one is an intact building, the other is a minefield.

  • Take the fast-paced fun of the original two-player 30-minute World War II squad-level tactical card game Spearpoint 1943 to a whole new level!
  • Play 4+ new tense tactical Situations that set up differently every time using versatile die-cut terrain tiles such as buildings, ruins, minefields, bunkers, and more!
  • Expansion includes new Situations with fictional introductions by Mark H. Walker.
  • Beautiful Marc von Martial (cogwheeldesigns.com) component and box artwork.
  • Adds simple new rules to the Spearpoint 1943 system including movement, line of sight, combat within buildings and structures, artillery spotting, and more!
  • Adds more tactical challenges for players through four new well-tested Situations.
Components (all very high quality, made in the USA)

  • 18 large 4” square die-cut double-sided Structure / Obstacle tiles

More Details
New general rules for this expansion add on to the base rules of Spearpoint 1943 to provide more tactical decisions, simple movement guidelines, rules for raiding buildings, spotting for artillery fire missions, line of sight, and more. All of the new Situations use either the Village side or Defensive Line side of the included map.  Each time a Situation is set up, terrain overlay tiles make each game unique since players place them in different ways before every game.  This makes even the same situation exciting and fresh each time it is played. All of the tiles are flip tiles- so when a building is destroyed, for example, the tile is flipped to the Ruins side for that building.  General counters included are useful for tracking starting zones for reinforcements, smoke drops, turns of flight for aircraft, temporary damage, and more.  They are not only useful for this expansion, but will also work well in Standard Frontline General: Spearpoint 1943 games.
